rolls royces from germany, mercedes from portsmouth

At least Mercedes are built in Woking now...
"Around 140 highly qualified employees manufacture up to 500 units of the Gran Turismo in Woking each year. The SLR is available in limited numbers,
in keeping with its exclusive character. During the vehicle's seven-year lifespan, a total of 3,500 units will leave the Woking plant, which is equipped with the very latest in production technology."
"The 21st-century Silver Arrow is manufactured in Woking using high-end components produced by specialists from the partner companies"
"The bodies-in-white are shipped to Woking from Portsmouth, around 100 kilometers (60 miles) away."

Merc has long history of engagement in Britain, though this seems to be the biggest so far. Cosworth engines is one example. Another is the current construction of a museum and 'car collection centre' in southern England.

It is an unaltered Mb Press Text (nothing wrong with that) so one has to have in mind the sentence _During the vehicle's seven-year lifespan, a total of 3,500 units will leave the Woking plant, _ is what DC HOPES, but as we could see many times in the past these forecasts often are nothing but wishful thinking.
