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!
+1, just received mine as well. I got one for my Evora and Elise. My Evora is one of one, with my colors and options and 2+0. Andy at Lotus was great.

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.
Nice!...great idea too. Ill have to do something like that.

Got mine yesterday - special thanks to the mailman for crumpling the "Do not bend!" package and shoving it into my mailbox. Cert and letter are already at the trophy shop for a shameless copy of O LEE O's idea (h/t).

Anyone with a MY12 done this yet? Based on the certs posted here, I'm counting 526 total US MY10 and MY11 N/A Evoras. I'm not sure if all MY12's that are going to be imported have made it here yet, so Andy might not even be able to give that figure yet.

WOW

Only 526 NA MY10-11
would guess less than 100 S
and less than 100 total MY12

This would make the Evora a truely rare and colectable car

Lambo has already produced more than 1000 Adventadors and more than 10000 Gallardos

And McLaren has delivered more than 1000 12C's. Clearly we can claim we own one of the rarest production performance cars in the world.

Got mine last week. Thanks Andy!
It was built on a Thursday and is the 1st out of 17 Arctic Silver 2010's to enter the US.

I too love how rare this car is...an example...stopped by a policeman this morning, (I'm thinking, Oh Oh, no front license plate..) He just asked me if it was Lotus and how beautiful he thought it was..

I think mine showed up, but not sure. Haven't been able to check my mail for a while. ( working in the l48). Was hoping the info would get emailed since I had told Andy I didn't need it printed out.

I spoke to Andy months ago on this; they can not do the MY12's yet as production is not finalized, all he could assure me was that I got #1 of the GP Edition.

All of our certificate of provenance requests must've pushed him over the edge. He had to go on holiday.

Seriously this is a great document to have for such a rare car. I would encourage everyone to get one.
