2011 Ford Shelby GT500 limited to only 5,500 units

The 2011 Ford Shelby GT500 is proving a real sales success in the States with Ford already receiving more than 3,000 orders for the 550HP Mustang since the car was announced earlier this year. But despite this positive sales success, Ford announced yesterday that U.S. sales of the 2011 Shelby GT500 will be limited to just 5,500 units for this model year.

“We are pleased with the pace of retail orders for the 2011 Shelby GT500,” said Fritz Wilke, Mustang brand manager. “The car continues to be popular with sports car enthusiasts and collectors who are blown away by the increase in horsepower and performance. The limited production of the 2011 should make this year even more desirable.”

Based on the latest Mustang underpinnings, the 2011 Shelby GT500 is powered by a new aluminum-block 5.4-liter supercharged V8 engine, which produces 550 horsepower and 510 lb.-ft. of torque.
