dogtag114 ...and thanks to these forums I continue to buy things "I didn't know I needed"...

Here is mine...

The original body colour was metallic Racing Green (Lotus paint code C203) with Phantom Black (Lotus paint code C123) roof and door mirrors with matte black (Lotus paint code B141) sills as part of the black pack. The interior was trimmed with black Alcantara® with silver stitching. Factory optional extras were; Alcantara® pack, 6-speed automatic transmission, black package, cruise control, yellow brake calipers, black forged wheels, metallic paint and subwoofer. The car also had the distributor optional Lotus guard premium applied in the US. The car was signed from production on the 4th November 2016. The car was imported into the US by Lotus Cars USA, Inc. who would retain any further history. Their records show the selling dealer Victory Lotus in Somerset, New Jersey.

The Evora 400 was launched as a 2017 model year to the USA and Canada with the first car leaving production in August 2016. The 2017 model year for the USA consisted of; 173 with manual transmission, 143 with automatic transmission and 11 Sport 410. The following is based on serial number sequence and data available to date for the 2017 Evora 400 with automatic transmission for the US market only;
Your car is the 113th out of 143 cars
Your car is the 7th out of 9 cars in metallic Racing Green (or the last out of 5 cars with black pack)
Your car is the last out of 2 cars in metallic Racing Green with black pack and Alcantara® trim, Your car is the only one in the same colour, trim and factory options.
Metallic Racing Green was the 8th most popular colour out of the 17 different colours used on the 2017 model year Evora 400 in total for the US market.

Lovora I received my provenance from Andy last week. Very prompt and courteous service I might add.

The VIN supplied for your Lotus Evora was SCCLMDVN0HHA11043 which can be broken down into
the manufacturer identifier code (SCC=UK manufacturer, Lotus Cars Ltd.), the brand (L=Lotus), the
model (MD=Evora), the engine type (V=2GR supercharged and charge-cooled - 400), the restraint
system (N=dual front air bags and side air bags + front and rear 3 point seat belts), the check digit
(0), the model year (H=2017), the assembly plant (H=Hethel, UK), the market specification (A=LHD
for USA), the transmission type (1=manual transmission) and the serial number (1043). The serial
number sequence is shared with all Lotus models worldwide. The original engine number was 2GR
K348765 which can be broken down into the engine type (2GR=2GR-FE 3.5 litre V6) and the serial
number (K348765). The gearbox number was GB4648.
The original body colour was metallic grey (Lotus paint code C185). The interior was trimmed with
standard black leather with black stitching. Factory optional extras were; cruise control, metallic paint
and subwoofer. The car was signed from production on the 24th May 2017. The car was imported
into the US by Lotus Cars USA, Inc. who would retain any further history. Their records show the
selling dealer was Park Place Limited in Bellevue, WA and the car was sold to a customer in
Redmond, WA in October 2017.
The Evora 400 was launched as a 2017 model year to the USA and Canada with the first car leaving
production in August 2016. The 2017 model year for the USA consisted of; 173 with manual
transmission, 144 with automatic transmission and 11 Sport 410. The following is based on serial
number sequence and data available to date for the 2017 Evora 400 with manual transmission for
the US market only;
Your car is the 150th out of 173 cars,
Your car is the 18th out of 20 cars in metallic grey (or the 6th out of 7 in all grey without black pack),
Your car is the 1st out of 2 cars in all metallic grey with standard black leather (both cars had the
same options).
Metallic grey was the 5th most popular colour out of the 17 different colours used on the 2017 model
year Evora 400 in total for the US market.


Who has the other twin metallic grey / black leather with Subwoofer and cruise?

James33 Got mine today! This is for my 2018 Evora 400. Only 79 cars for 2018? Wow - that's a low number!!

The Evora 400 was launched as a 2017 model year to the USA and Canada with the first car leaving
production in August 2016. The 2018 model year for the USA consisted of; 79 cars with manual
transmission, 16 with automatic transmission and 2 Sport 410. The following is based on serial
number sequence and data available to date for the 2018 Evora 400 with manual transmission for
the US market only;
Your car is the 22nd out of 79 cars,
Your car is the last out of 3 cars in metallic blue (or last of 2 in blue with black pack),
Your car is the only one in metallic blue with black pack and tan trim (the other car in blue with tan
leather didn’t have black pack).
Metallic blue was the joint 5th most popular colour out of the 47 different colours (many were single
or low numbers) used on the 2018 Evora 400 with manual transmission for the USA.

roarf Received my certificate of provenance a few weeks ago. I figured it was pretty rare since Chrome Orange wasn't a standard color in 2014. Only manual S in '14 with leather (one other manual but with Suedetex).

Quote:
The 2014 model year is the last year the Evora was available in the US before the introduction of
the 2017 Evora 400. The 2014 model year for the USA consisted of; 31 Evora, 62 Evora IPS, 84
Evora S, 103 Evora S IPS. The following is based on serial number sequence and data available to
date for the 2014 Evora S for the USA only;
Your car was the 70th out of 84 cars,
Your car was the 1st out of 2 cars in Chrome Orange,
Your car was the only one in Chrome Orange with leather trim (the other car in Chrome Orange had
SuedeTex® trim).
Chrome Orange was the joint 2nd rarest colour out of the 19 different colours used on the 2014 Evora
S for the US.
Out of all the 2014 model year Evora variants for the US, your car was the 45th from last.

I hope you find this information of interest and you enjoy your Evora ownership.

I've always understood 1,216 as the total number of Evora built (all variants) for the US market - this was extrapolated by totaling up all the different info from the shared Certificates of Provenance in this thread... however this seems to be the first time (that I could find) Andy mentioned 1256 as the total. Any consensus on which number is correct? I read in previous posts about the 'Chinese' Evoras, which It seems there were 26 of them - might be part of the answer.

Curious minds want to know!

Thanks!

As far as we know, yes. He is "the" guy, so don't expect rapid communication. However, the consensus is he won't neglect anyone's request... just takes days (some times a week+) to hear back. I believe email is the most effective way.

I have a MY14 Evora IPS in Laser Blue. It has a the black forged wheels, black pack. black alcantara interior. The laser blue color seems to be very hard to find. Everyone compliments on the beautiful color of the car. When it is polished and waxed, the color is gorgeous. I wanted to protect the paint so I had ceramic coating applied.
