Does anyone know roughly how many of these models are still about in the world?

My car is an SE and I have owned it since 1981. I could be wrong, but I believe that there are around 12 genuine factory-modified cars of the original 65 modified by Lotus that are known to the LCR

For sure, I’ve counted both the VUR cars you mentioned and Hiro’s VUR car in Japan - that’s three. Then there is DP’s, ex-AT’s (NAR 364D), ex-DT’s, SS’s, three others that i’ve seen in the past and mine and another that once belonged to a guy (Magivelry)? I met who ran an exhaust company in Caterham back in the early 1980s when I first bought my car (it may have been one of the VUR cars), there could be a few others of course, Rick my have more of an idea I guess.
