No I don't think so and I agree, as I often do, with MB-SV. Please remember that the totally hand built SLR is a $500,000 vehicle. Not that we would have to pay that for a hand built S-Class, but under the current market conditions, it will never happen.
Would I like to see your suggestion become a reality? You betcha! I owned a hand made Porsche back in the day, and it was a dream car. I don't know this as fact, but they are probably assembled for the most part by robots now also.
