Certificate of Vehicle Provenance

went ahead and ordered my "Certificate of Vehicle Provenance" from the Lotus archives.

Interesting thing is that is list my car as 113 out of 285 Evora NA -eek-
for MY11 for USA market
I thought there were closer to 700 Evoras produced for MY11 in the USA?
This would make our cars much much more rare than I originally thought they were.:coolnana:
Lamborghini has already produced 1000 Aventadors and more than 10000 Gallardos.:p

I believe there were about 75 MY11 Evora S versions shipped to the US. Very rare indeed.

Abe, can you confirm?

According to my Certificate of Vehicle Provenance for my 2011 Evora S from October 2011:

"Based on serial number sequence to date, your car is the 69th out of 74 Evora S models made for the USA."
Thanks. I need to get a certificate so I can find out my car's place in the series. :)

I just dropped off both my certificate and letter today at a trophy place who will be mounting them both on a black plaque. Should take a week and about $50. My wife thinks I'm nuts (so what else is new) but I figure if you got them, you might as well display them.

I called Andy at Lotus the other day to order my cert. Another guy answered the phone (didn't catch his name). When I asked for Andy and explained what I wanted he laughed and said Andy was already "down in the archives" and "it's going to be quite some time". I think he's a bit overwhelmed by the sudden influx of cert requests due to this thread :D

As Chiro said, we're really paying for the labor of assembling the information.
