I believe yours is 2580 which does fall between 0006 and 3144.

Did not read it right. Guess I need to learn how to read.

Don't sweat it, you own an Exige S so you are obviously doing some things very right.

I don't know about the #8. Here is where I got my info: https://www.lotustalk.com/forums/f94/...dition-125005/
There is a link to some pictures there.
Also here is a quote from an email that Andy Graham – Technical Publications and Archives sent me, "The Laser Blue car and 1 Ardent Red car for Canada I was told are two cars that were never numbered. Don’t ask why as Lotus Cars USA does their own marketing etc.

Regards,

Andy Graham – Technical Publications and Archives"

I wonder if these are a part of the four that your chart has for Canada or maybe two extra?

I changed my post regarding #8 and kept it Phantom Black on the list.

Thanks for the clarification.

I'm sorry, I made a mistake. #3, #4 and #7 are Isotope green. #4 is in Canada. #3 is/was in Florida. And #7 is mine and is now in TX, originally in Chicago.

Thank you, you narrowed it down to 21 colors out of 30. Once the remaining colors are accounted for, the results will be posted by color in alphabetical order and the quantities produced for each color.
Much appreciated.

Thanks to Andy Graham, the U.S. production numbers for each Edition have been provided. As for 2008 California Editions, a bit more research is needed.

THANK YOU Andy.

Check out the first post to this thread for the latest numbers AND most importantly the information needed to complete the Chart.

Andy was great for me also when researching the CROFT labels on my car. Just remember that the serial numbers (last 4 on the VIN) have NOTHING to do with a car being US or Europe or wherever... Those numbers represent the worldwide production sequence. IE - my car is a 2005, serial number 0134. But 0135 may have been a euro spec car, not an american one. The last 4 numers of the VIN are not country specific. This threw me for awhile as the rest of the VIN IS Federal Elise only...country specific....

Lotus Elise #134 - S O L D BOE REV400 street car built at BOE in KC. , Stock motor, low boost w/stock cat/mani, 292whp, (5.95 lbs/hp) passes all 50 states emissions/OBD, BOE ST exhaust, ACT HDSS, BOE Clam Hinge, BOE Oil Cooler Relocation, BOE Surge Tank/750cc injectors, BOE Race Links, MWR Rear Lift Kit etc. 0-100 = you bet!

As I'm about ready to acquire a white RGB Exige, do we have more specific details on the US imported RGBs? The listing on page 1 just says there are 7. Just curious.

Scott, yes. 7 in the US and 5 in Canada. 12 total in North America. And roughly 250 Eliges worldwide.

Check this out as a Forum member attempted to start a Registry for RGBs:

https://www.lotustalk.com/forums/f157...s-only-123802/

Apparently, it's a very lonely proposition as the car is so rare.

Good luck in your acquisition and share pictures.
