This is the badge on the drivers door opening sill, yours may be missing that’s all.

Nice car in good colour combo 👍🏻👍🏻

Yep it's deffinatelty not there it would stand out a mile on the White. Looks like it's been taken off to get protection film on the sills that wrap round into the door shut area.

 

And thanks originally went looking for a black interior but when I saw this it just looked the dogs as they say.

Great forum and thread

new here as researching on Evora as potentially keeping an eye out on Launch Editions as my first Lotus.

needs to be a +2 so I can do the kids school run if needed 😉

 

are the cars listed above identified as they have previously been on this forum as owners on here? 
 

thanks

Dave, any chance you can do a wider photo so I can see how it's positioned. Found a source of repros so wouldn't mind putting mine back, just need to know the right place.

Lotus Evora LE chrome orange interior black 

SCCTC12209HP41058

234th Evora , 103th in RHD , 2nd in chrome orange

Built November 18th 2009

first registration november 24 2009

previously factory company car for Mrs Arundell

i own this car since February 28 2011

So i think i have the first orange one but i thought the LE colour was Burnt Orange not Chrome Orange (that is what is says on my service book) 

I think it may also be the first car sold in the uk? (that's what i got told my the garage that services it) 

so anyway happy to be included on the register 

PDI date is 01-09-2009 (don't know build date sorry) 

Burnt Orange with black interior

Cheers Paul

@SCMTBCOACH was your Evora originally registered as E6ACL? If it was, then it was the second Evora customer delivery on the same day the first car (AU59ACY) was handed over to its owner at the factory (my car is the second customer car by VIN but not delivery date).

There were photos on a website called Lotusenthusaist.net but sadly it's no longer active.

🆒 Paul

I don't know how many burnt orange Launch Editions were made, but if you have/get a Certificate of Provenance, Andy Graham, the Lotus Archivist, will detail production numbers for MY09 in the Build Specification Letter. :cool:

I think I remember that @Andrew C's was the first car completed but the 'First Customer Evora' went to @Beady. May be wrong though, it was a while back!
