Can anyone confirm that it is accurate?

The total production figures correspond with those in Brian Long's 107 "bible". However, the 350SL/450SL numbers don't exactly represent what appears to have happened.

The German domestic market nor the ROW didn't get a 450SL until 1973. The numbers prior to that in Marcel's document for 1971/72 must be the 350SL 4.5 and 450SLs that were exported to North America. After that the numbers are still mostly NA, with smaller production of Euro/ROW/Japan 450SLs which had a different (and better!) engine with 8.8:1 compression ratio vs 8.0:1 for NA model and as a result higher BHP. To add to confusion, engine for both 450SL models was designated as M117.982!

I also didn't understand the 'export welt' numbers.

Not enough reason not to put it EGv107 though :)
