#162 - C8 Laviolette - Silver/Orange

Model year 2007

VIN XL9BA11G27Z363162

Champion Silver/Tropicana Orange

At Expo Motorcars/Spyker of Houston

Vehicle Details

Interesting to note, they are calling this car a 2008, but the VIN cleary identifies this car as a 2007. This makes it one of the few 2007 Laviolettes that I know of in the U.S.

I believe this has been the demonstrator and has been present at Pebble Beach and the World Class Driving Festival. Can't remember whether we had already identified it as #162.

But..thanks for the pictures! I can't get enough of Laviolette's

Yes, it is on the unofficial registry. I noticed that it did not yet have its own thread, plus the full VIN had not been identified. I was surprised to see it was a 2007; I've been up and down the unofficial registry and verifiable 2007's are quite rare.

I happen to like the Laviolettes quite a bit myself!

Well spotted!

It is build in 2007, but probably has the Model Year 2008 specs.

Indeed! Build in 2007 does not mean it is a 2007MY car. A model year always starts very early.

As I understand the current 17-digit VIN system in use worldwide, the 10th character identifies the model year of the car. The 10th character of this car's VIN is 7, which identifies this car as a 2007, regardless of when it was built or to what specifications.

That's okay! While we're on it, do I have to somehow link cars I've started threads for to your unofficial registry? Because I don't think I know how to do that.

That's okay, I go through my own lazy spurts now and again.

One thing I'm sure we all could use more of is time!
