1M's production did not continue into July, so that the very last 1M may have been VU27454, a black car produced on June 29, and presumably shipped to South America (Chile/Argentina?).
That indeed explains the January production gap.
VU27453 is also a south american car, while the last one delivered in Europe is probably VU27452 a VO germany delivered car.
The last RHD car seems to be VU28403, also a BSM, produced on June 28th and shipped to Australia.

I think the production figures you have calculated are pretty accurate, got the same, unless there is a VIN serie that we have overlooked.
