No not free, he said part of the cost was the special paper and mailing it.

Email exchange I had with Andy about a hour after posting the thread

Wish I could get people to buy the car this easy.
Great document to have.





Dear Andrew,

I have had about half dozen enquiries today, so thanks.

Received my certificate of provenance yesterday. Thank you. I posted a copy on the Lotus Talk forum. Hopefully you will get some additional Lotus owners to request a copy for their cars.

Thank You again
Andrew

Have you gotten yours back from the trophy shop yet? If so, pictures please! I'm going to steal your idea for my own.

No, not yet lynnepreston but when I do, I will be sure to post some pictures. Afterall, that's why we do these things, so they can be seen.

Someone explain this to me:
It says the car is 4 of 9 with Carbon Grey with black and graphite trim.
Then it says the car is 1 of 2 with Carbon Grey with black and graphite trim with the same options including Black Package.
As I read this, I thought 9 Carbon Grey Black Packages and 2 with the options listed. But then the certificate special mention states 1 of 2 Carbon Grey 2011 Evoras Bicolor Models.

So are there 2 or 9 Carbon Grey with Black Packages?

After thinking further, I assume the 9 means Carbon with Black interior, as opposed to the other 13 Carbon Greys that have oyster or paprika interior.

I just received my Certificate of Provence documents from Lotus. This is a great addition to my cars history and birth! I found out from the document that there are 18 cars in the US with titanium Storm Paint choice, and it is one of two Evoras with all the same options. Thank you all for providing the link to apply for this certificate. My feeling is the dealer should have purchased this for us in the first place!

Nice mounting job...I like the Lotus logos too. Who did it? Do you know if they would do this online? BTW - We are probably all here a little nuts...I want to show mine off too!

<@[email protected]>,

Thanks, from a nut to a fellow nut!

A very small, old local shop here in NJ. I'm not sure if they do stuff on-line but I will ask for you (I wouldn't bet on it). I supplied the Lotus logos from a my small collection of tib bits. They are stickers I bought off of E-Bay sometime ago.
