Since WERM asked:

My car was 50th out of 77.
My car was 6th out of 7 that were in Persian Blue
My car was the last of 4 cars in Persian Blue with Black leather
As one of these cars had both sport and touring packs, my car was the last of 3 cars with the same specifications.

And there you are..........

Vince, I know there are at least 2RGB Aspen White Exiges here in the US. I own one and a friend (who lives 10 miles away in north Dallas area) has another. Mine is RGB #167 and last digits on vin are 11451 for me. I'm going to order the letter from Andy and will share info when I get it.

Mine has 2 large black stripes and to outer small orange stripes. The other has white wheels and was owned by some rocker and bought out of Austin

You have one of 7 U.S. RGB's, a very rare Lotus indeed.

Thank you for sharing Andy's letter when you receive it. We know that there is 1 Starlight Black, and some combination of Carbon Grey, Solar Yellow and Aspen White for the remaining 6 Exige RGB's.

I just got this draft from Andy this morning. GG was pretty rare it seems:

--- cut here ---
The original body colour was Graphite Grey metallic, Lotus paint code B108.
The interior was trimmed with black half leather.
Optional extras were; Lifestyle paint, sport pack and hard top.
The car left the production line on the 18th May 2005.
The car was imported into the USA by Lotus Cars USA Inc. who would retain any further history.
They have informed me that the selling dealer was Fox Valley Motorcars in Westmont, Illinois.
The following is based on serial number sequence for the USA market 2005 Elise, of which
there were 3324 cars in total;
Your car is the 116th out of 151 cars in Graphite Grey,
Your car is the 8th out of 11 cars in Graphite Grey with half leather trim,
Your car is the only one in Graphite Grey with half leather trim, and the same options as listed above.
Graphite Grey was the 7th rarest colour out of the 16 different colours available.
--- cut here ---

Enjoy!

Again, note that Andy Graham is now stating that there are 3324 U.S. Production Elise's in 2005, versus 3321 found in earlier letters. I believe there were 3 preproduction cars for 2006. Perhaps Lotus was attributing them to 2005, and later decided not to attribute the 3 to 2006. Ultimately, the 1,079 Elise's in 2006 do not include the 3 preproduction cars nor do the 3,321 Elise's in 2005.

Pardon my ignorance but, how would I go about obtaining a Certificate of Provenance? Can it be done via e-mail request? I'd be more than happy to share any info I can get.

Three weeks ago, I placed a request to Andy Graham to provide some overall numbers for the completion of the U.S. Elise/Exige Production Chart, particularly for model years 2009 and 2010 U.S. He said that he is busy with providing Certificates and is not presently able to accommodate my request at the moment, which is a good thing. As soon as he gets back to me, I shall update the information in the chart found in the first post of this thread. Also, if you wish to share production numbers obtained from Certificates of Provenance and Letters, please feel free to post them.

O LEE O:

Yes, please tell Andy THANK YOU. He's been very helpful, and must think I am a pain, but am very grateful for the information he has provided.
I am envious that you are visiting Hethel, and wish you a great visit to the Factory.

Vincesf,
I ran into Noelsmith at the Larz Anderson British Car Day and he mentioned that you might be interested in the build date and vin of my 2005 Arctic Silver Elise. As far as I know, the two previous owners were in California. The car is now in Massachusetts.

August 2005 build date.
