I don't know what they were up to in 1982.

Otherwise, the fiche don't show any gaps and show much more reasonable
numbers (about 2.75 cars/day) coming out of Neckarsulm.  The MB-engined
cars have sequential gap-less numbers.

Don't forget that a major purpose of the early production series was
homologation for the rally cars.
