I'm doing a little bit of used Ampera perusing at the moment, and there seem to be loads of cars with the numberplates VK12 V and then two random letters afterwards.

The only Amperas I've ever seen seem to have this number plate configuration too...

Were they the first batch all registered together?

Mine starts YP12, but when i purchased it a few weeks ago, the dealer said it was one of the first and was probably used by someone at Vauxhall. Don't know if this is true at all.
Having looked at the V5 when it came through it was owned by a leasing company initially. The batch with VX12 might have been purchased by a leasing company and registered together.

I test drove one recently with a VK12 number plate and was told they are from Vauxhall themselves i.e. employee/staff cars released into the wild!

Ex-demonstrators then? Possibly having been wragged by all and sundry??!!

I've seen VK12 VEP now out on the roads! I should have flagged it down and asked if it was a demo!

Yep mine is a VK12 too, a Lithium White one that I got used from Archie Moss in Loughborough - but from Worcester too I think.

Sorry to restart an old thread but my car is a VK12 V reg. From what i have found out it does seem all of the demo cars that dealers had were VK12 V reg and its likely mine was one of them, first stamp in the book was related to a fleet company. I also found some videos on youtube from various dealers up and down the country and they all had VK12 V reg cars, so far not seen mine in any of them but if anyone knows anything about VK12 VKG (Vicky the viking) please let me know :)

I have two cars with very similar plates, both have the same letters in the same order and both have the same numbers but in slightly different order, it should be easy but it's not.:confused:

Is this one of those riddles/mathematical problems in the back of a paper, where we now have enough information to work out what the number plates are, and will win a small cursory gift once solved? :D

Sounds more like a Morecambe & Wise sketch....

My car is a VK12 V** and was purchased from a Vauxhall dealer as ex demo with only 11,000 miles after 2 1/2 years.

Was told they were from a central stock which had been scattered around dealers and no haggling allowed.

I also have a VK12 car, lithium white Electron bought secondhand from Bellingers last year. Yes, many of the early VK12 plate cars were used as demonstrators. Some were then retained as Vauxhall company cars. When I bought my car last year I found in the boot an old laminated sales guide that was probably used at sales events in 2012.My car seems to have led an easy life and is in excellent condition, most of the other VK12 Ampera's that I have also seen appear to be in good condition as well.

Same plate on mine - Lithium White too. Bought with 19k on clock - now 60k. Still in good condition in spite of having a replacement door last month! (Ask the wife).
