How many 2-Elevens

Recommended Posts

How many 2-Elevens are there out there?

How man have been built and how many have been sold?

Question was raised on SELOC chat forum and I thought somebody on here might know (Scott?)

I've just had a transporter turn up and I have off loaded an Elise, an Exige and 2 X 2 Elevens; one is sold, and the other is stock. The build numbers are 149 and 150.

I presume that the numbers are units built worldwide.

To date we have sold 18, and I reckon there will be more than a few more over the summer - though I really can't say how long the delivery times could possibly be.

I will try to investigate a little more and see where each chassis number / build number went. Be great to see a numbered register.

Cheers,

Scott.

That will be easy enough to do on here, I'll sort out a thread where everyone can add which car they have with the chassis number and their location/details etc. :)

I've heard that there are about 170 cars sold to date, I'll see if I can confirm this later.

Close, it's 168! :whistle:

According to my dealer there were 34 sold in the U.S. for 2008. I was the last one to place an order but my paperwork may have gotten in somewhere up on the list. Delivery is rumored to be May/June-ish. I know of another buyer in upstate New York and one in Dallas. Have not heard of any others yet. Seems like most are keeping mum. I am to a degree, locally.

Number 350 has recently rolled down the line at Hethel.

Thanks Bibs - would be good to know what the last chassis number is. Guess we will have to wait until Christmas when you unwrap your present from Hethel (you are still expecting a gift wrapped 2-11 aren't you?)

They're still building them Del, not many but they're still available. Not sure how much longer this will last for due to the engine supply issue but I expect your car will become a rarer beast before long.

I've just received an Email from Andy Graham (Lotus Archives) :

Our ex-CEO ordered the last 2-Eleven, so you are now 25th from last.

Since I have #301, this would mean, that only 325 have been built worldwide.

Welcome to TLF Paul. :welcome:

 

Duck over to the Introductions area and say hi in there with some pics of your car.

 

I don't think we've had anyone on here with an Atom before. :detective:

Hi Michael

I joined TLF just as I was in the process of buying my Lotus, which is fantastic. If you didn't guess it is a 2-11, the last one made, number 358! The only downside is I don't have the Atom anymore. I guess I better update my profile!
