Why do some cars take longer than others?

For a bespoke new car that is ordered directly from the factory, lead times will vary depending on which model and specification you choose. For example our DSG gearboxes are always in high demand across the world so lead times of vehicles with DSG are extended. Where your car is built will also affect lead times as some of our factories are outside Europe and so are subject to extended shipping times. Your retailer has up-to-date information on lead times and we encourage you to discuss this with them if a short lead time is important to you.
