Build numbers

Any idea how any 55AMGs were made by Mercedes?

I have an 2008 facelift and they appear to be very rare secondhand, so is that low numbers produced or people not selling them?

How many?

Be good to know how many. I recently bought a 2010 55 - dealer said it was last one made but I think that was probably sales talk!!
