I was perusing the ever interesting How Many Left? site and wondered how many V8s were still around. This might well have been done before but I also looked back to the various web sites that cover production and knocked this up:


So in summary, 1,502 V8s were made, 262 stayed in the UK, of which there's 169 on the road and it looks as though we have only lost 6?

Interesting :)

This could be done for the other models as well, but I can't be stuffed :P

Must add my car to this for you Bibs.

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.

Hi All, 

Figured I'd join the thread here and ad my sad S2. 

Vin# 78090127S
Engine# HD907 78 09   15318
Sub: LS77OR889 - this may or may not be absolutely correct.  It's a very poorly stamped number directly under the engine #.

I have made many mistakes in my life. Buying a multiple Lotus is not one of them.

Looks like I never got around to posting here either!

I have a 1977 S1, originally red "self colour" gelcoat, but sprayed (very badly) yellow prior to my purchase.

Chassis Number 7612 0226G 

Engine Number CC7 7612 13316

Car is currently undergoing restoration. New fuel tanks, radiator, fans, fuel lines & pump, fuel sender unit and plenty more already done. Main job left is repaint and interior trim.
