German term or phrase: Überlimitierung
The word "Überlimitierung" refers to excess models that were produced for special editions, i.e. if 100 special editions were sold (numbered 1 to 100), and 105 were actually produced, the other 5 would be "Überlimitierungen".

Does anyone know if there is a term for this in English?

Many thanks

Explanation:
IMO would cover this satisfactorily; though I'm pretty sure there is no exact equivalent to the German term.
