Cars #246-250 were never produced due to production issues, so the final Collector Edition car is actually #940. Details on the production numbers are listed below.

Sold to David Flynn who also owns the first retail Cadillac ATS). reference link This was also the one that was shown at the Geneva AutoShow in 2016 when the Grand Sport was officially announced. The dash plaque serial number can be seen in the video below at the 1:00 mark.

VIDEO FROM THE 2016 GENEVA AUTOSHOW
This video is from the Geneva Autoshow where the 2017 Grand Sport and Collector Edition were announced publicly for the first time. The Collector Edition shown in this video is a prototype and was never sold (it has an experimental VIN). The car is actually a 2015 2LT Stingray that was cosmetically modified for show purposes. There are two noticeable differences in this car from the production vehicles:
The dash plaque shows 0001/1000. The production plaques show only the number of the vehicle, not the /1000.
The production sill plates that say Grand Sport is not colored the way it shows in the video, there is no blue in the production version.
