    This was an interesting sale listing:
    HISTORIC TESLA ROADSTER SOLD (2012) on Car And Classic UK [C770337]

    From the special plaque, I think I can make out the VIN as:
    SFZRE4B10B3000648
    This is interesting to me because the region code is 4 which I assume is usually Australia.

    The VIN decoder someone once posted only included these "Make/Region designated for" codes:
    1=Tesla NA RHD (North America Left Hand Drive)
    2=Tesla EU/APAC LHD (European Union/Asia Pacific Left Hand Drive)
    3=Tesla EU/APAC RHD (European Union/Asia Pacific Right Hand Drive)

    Since then, looking at various international Roadster for-sale listing, I concluded that other region codes could be:
    4=Australia / New Zealand
    5=Japan
    6=?
    7=?
    8=Hong Kong

    I wonder if they were making that last RHD for Australia, then someone in Jersey bought it instead?

    Also, FYI, the last (Worldwide) RHD Roadster apparently went to Australia:
    Tesla Model S : What’s In A Name?

    I would guess the VIN for that car is something like:
    SFZRE4B37C3001007

    Nice. The only very orange RHD I've seen.
