Thanks for the link, Perry. The background story makes the car even more sympathetic and interesting. When it comes to production numbers, the word "waiting list" takes on yet another new meaning. There would have to be a waiting list of friends and acquaintances.
I'd be surprised at any car that doesn't have a waiting list - my Mrs has just ordered a company car. Due to her lowly paygrade it's a bog standard VW Golf without any frills or upgrades allowed. Delivery date is 28/04/23!
