GP Edition Registry

Known factory statements about GP Edition production; 3 GP's for UK market and 15 for North America (US, Canada and Mexico).
While at the factory back in September, I saw the three UK cars plus some LHD Euro models. I would warrant a guess on my old memory that it was a total of 8; so 3 - UK, 5 - Euro, now I hear 10 of 15 NA models were for US and 5 for Canada. Question is where are they? Who has them? How many were really produced?

So I am starting a Registry list, dealers can enter their name on the list if they have one ordered or in hand, purchaser that has received the car can enter forum name and/or name and last digits of the VIN .

USA Dealer; VIN; Owner
1 Lotus of Austin, TX; ...10161; Julian Bowes (Julian73)
2 Lotus of Pittsburgh, PA; ...10177; in stock
3 Lotus of Greenville, SC; ?
4 Boardwalk Lotus, CA; not yet arrived (as of 3/24)
5 Lotus of St. Louis, MO; ?
7 Lotus of Austin, TX(#2); ?
8?
9?
10?

Canada
1 Gentry Lane, Toronto; ...10089; sold
2 Gentry Lane, Toronto (#2); ...10098; in stock
3 Lotus of Vancouver (Weissach); ...10112 ;Lori Kate (Lori Kate)
4
5

UK
1 Bell & Colvill; in stock
2 Murray Motors Lotus, Edinburgh; in stock
3

Europe
1 Sportivo Leipzig GmbH, Germany; in stock
2 Lotus Verheist, Belgium; sold ?
3 Lotus Roma, Italy; in stock

Boardwalk Lotus in Redwood City, California appears to have one on order. Saw it on their web site under "New Inventory". GP's look pretty sweet!

Yes, I'm sure gentry lane received two of them. I watched them both come off the truck when they arrived. One had been pre-sold...

For Info:
The gearknob for MY12 Evoras actually hasn't changed.
The GP Editions crossed over 2 model years, so for MY12 versions some uniquely designed interior elements stayed, such as the steering wheel, seats etc. Everything else was updated due to compatibility issues- seals, lower sill mouldings, exhausts, headunit and gearchange cables etc.
