After selling 3,300 units of the 2011 Ford Shelby GT500, the company announced that the total production run for 2011 would be limited to 5,500 units in total.

Ford apparently wants to ensure that the Shelby GT500 is an exclusive model, and with sales having “exceeded expectations”, this is likely a wise move for Ford’s performance flagship. Ford also said that 68 percent have been ordered with the Performance Package, which included an upgraded suspension, limited slip differential and rear spoiler, and that the glass roof option has been three times as popular on the GT500 than the regular Mustang.

Despite having a base price just under $50,000, the Shelby GT500 seems to have no trouble finding homes. Better act fast.
