  • #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.
        Winning on sunday, selling on monday!

          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.

              True, didn't notice that

                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.

                  I have to do that But I have been a little lazy with the updates lately...

                    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!
