Did the world forget?
DeLorean made Lotus and Maserati look reliable.
Oh and small volume manufacturing has been available in the EEC/ UK for over 20 years under the EC SSTA guidelines
So DeLoreans could have been imported at any time, not quite sure why they feel the need to highlight a change in legislation to manufacture a car originally built in Belfast, and £100k is probably to cover the union rep's salary and pension fund for building in the USA. Obviously DeLorean was the inspiration behind the iPhone, it's brushed metal and glass and also would be cheaper to outsource to Foxconn.
