...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)

Just got my information back from Andy Graham.

The original body colour was Kawasaki green (paint code S6756) with Phantom Black (Lotus paint code C123) roof and door mirrors and matt black (Lotus paint code B141) sills as part of the black package. The interior trim was black Alcantara® with green stitching. Optional extras were; Alcantara pack®, Alcantara® steering wheel, bespoke green stitching, black package (paint), cruise control, yellow brake calipers, black forged wheels, body colour interior colour pack, category 3 paint and premium audio with subwoofer. The body colour and stitching were done as part of the Lotus Exclusive scheme. The car was signed from production on the 11th December 2018. 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 Lotus Cars of Nashville in Brentwood, TN who had this as a demonstrator from June 2019 before selling the car to you in August 2019.
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 76th out of 79 cars,
Your car is the only one in Kawasaki Green, while this colour was used on other 2018 Lotus cars, it was the only 2018 Evora worldwide in Kawasaki Green.
Kawasaki Green was the joint rarest colour
(along with 34 cars where only one car in one colour was made) out of the 47 different colours (many were single or low numbers as solid yellow was the most popular at just 8 cars) used on the 2018 Evora 400 with manual transmission for the USA.

Got the information on my 2010 Evora today from Andy Graham, exactly 3 weeks after wiring the research funds to Lotus. Here's the relevant info: Color: BRG, paint code B04. Interior: black and oyster leather. Factory options: silver forged wheels, premium pack (trim), sports ratio gearbox, sport pack and tech pack with backup camera. Selling dealer: Lotus of Jacksonville, FL. Production date: April 20, 2010. It is #186 of 241 produced for the US market in 2010. It is 6th of 8 in BRG, 3rd of 4 in BRG with black & oyster interior, and the only one in BRG with black and oyster trim and the same factory options.
As for a current update, I became its 4th owner in late July, it now has 33K+ miles, and is terrific to drive. Thank you LOTUS!

My amazing girlfriend got me mine for Christmas, along with some other Evora items. Here's what Andy found:

The original body colour was Sienna Brown metallic, Lotus paint code C151. The interior trim was
Ebony Black 'Sport' leather and the 'Sport' trim featured carbon effect leather seat inserts with red
seat piping and stitching. Factory optional extras were; metallic paint, IPS automatic transmission,
gloss black forged wheels, premium pack 'Sport' trim and tech pack with backup camera. IPS sport
pack was standard on the 'S' model. The car also had the distributor optional Star shield applied at
the port in the USA. The car was signed from production on the 17th October 2012. The car was
imported into the USA by Lotus Cars USA, Inc. who would retain any further history. Their records
show the selling dealer was Star Motor Cars in Houston, Texas and the car was sold to a customer
also in Houston.

The 2012 model year saw all Evora models being revised including a new style trim. The 2013 model
year saw the introduction of the Evora S IPS in the USA and the 2014 model year was the last for
the Evora in the USA. The 2013 model year for the USA consisted of; 26 Evora, 42 Evora IPS, 26
Evora Sand 76 Evora SIPS. The following is based on serial number sequence and data available
to date for the 2013 model year Evora S IPS for the USA only;
Your car is the 45th out of 76 cars,
Your car is the 5th out of 6 cars in Sienna Brown (none of these had the optional black pack paint),
Your car is the last out of 3 cars in Sienna Brown with Ebony Black leather trim,
Your car is the last out of 2 cars in the same colour, trim and options as listed above.
Sienna Brown was the 6th most popular colour out of the 15 different colours used on this model/year.
As your car is rare and the S IPS model was only available over 2 model years in the USA I have
also looked at the 2014 Evora S IPS for the USA and out of the 103 cars in total, 3 were in Sienna
Brown (2 of these with black pack) and all 3 cars had Ebony Black 'Sport' leather trim.


I love the Sienna Brown color, hard to properly photograph but when the light hits it it's awesome.

Just got mine back from Andy and I am very pleased. I bought this car on BAT sight unseen and without much information on options and trim. Turned out to be a unicorn of sorts.
177th of 241 manual in US
10th out of 12 in Canyon Red
Last of 6 cars in Canyon Red with black and charcoal leather
and the kicker, this car is 1 of 1 in this color combo and options.
