Was just looking on How many left.co.uk

 

VX220 NA = 420 (Q3 2021), 372 SORN

VX220 Turbo = 336, 269 SORN

Lightening Yello - 39, 29 SORN

 

 

792 NAs left

605 Turbos

68 Lightening Yellas

 

total 1,465 cars in the UK 

 

The original numbers for the UK market were:

VX220 NA: 2750

VX220 LY: 100
VX220 Turbo: 2750

 

29% of Na’s left

22% of Turbos left

68% of Lightening yellows left

 

No wonder prices are up.

I suspect many, many have been crashed, written off, driven into the ground as track cars. Go to the howmanyleft.co.uk and see the graph over time. You can see the decay in registered cars over time. The Yellows should stay somewhere i can’t see them, yellow any car.

Turbo decay is greater than NA. I think these are cars that were written off each year, or turned to track cars.

That's a lot of SORNs - nearly half!

 

Are your original numbers correct - surely there were more NAs than Turbos?

I searched a previous post - there were about 10,000 made of everything in the mix, but that was for europe - those were the numbers quoted for UK.

 

if you look at the graphs you see a very seasonal switch where cars are taken off SORN for summer. But there are a lot that are long term SORN

 

These cars are now bloody rare. The positive reputation and the low number that come up for sale are why the prices are high, but it is getting hard to find some parts.

 

I remember there was always a rash of cars written off when we went from summer to winter and the roads became much greasier, diesel spills on roundabouts was especially common.

My figures are 7189 Vx and Speedster total peoduction.
5195 being NA models (Vx and Opel)
That can't match with your original numbers for UK market.

I don't have numbers for what was shipped to Europe. 

 

What's more confusing is that on how manyleft, 986 was the highest ever registered NA and 761was thew highest registered Turbos ion the UK.

 

Maybe my number were what Vauxhaul thought they would sell originally.

Yeah! I agree.

Saw an article about the last produced Exige/Elise/Evora that had some recap of what have been built on that platform. It said 7200 Speedster/VX, in all forms, ever built.

There are 3 NAs and 1 turbo in Australia if you want to add them in. 😁
