From the Certificate of Provenance:

The original body colour was Persian Blue metallic, Lotus paint code B131. The interior was trimmed in black leather. Factory optional extras were; metallic paint, touring pack and track pack. The car also had the distributor optional Star shield applied at the port in the US. The car was signed from production on the 30th November 2007. The car was imported into the USA by Lotus Cars USA, Inc. who would retain any further history. Their records show that the original dealer was Fox Valley Motorcars, Inc. in Westmont, IL who had this as a demonstrator and sold the car a couple of weeks later to a customer in Florence, KY at the end of March 2009. The 2008 model year featured the then new PFK security system with an integral key and remote, revised instrument display with high RPM sequential tell-tale lights and CAN bus diagnostics. For the USA tyre pressure monitoring was now fitted and the S 240 replaced the previous S (220), except for 20 2008 Exige S Club Racer special editions. The following is based on serial number sequence and data available to date for the 2008 model year Exige S 240 for the US only:

  • Your car is the 64th out of 164 cars
  • Your car is the 10th out of 16 cars in Persian Blue (all had black leather)
  • Your car is the 9th out of 12 cars in Persian Blue with the same options as listed above
  • Persian Blue is the 3rd most popular colour out of 19 different colours used this model and year. It appears the 2008 model year is the only year this colour was used for the USA market Exige.
