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.
