After a long wait and many hurdles, the vehicle was in 2012 , imported to Germany and with a lot of effort approved for road .
As new vehicle from "Ford America" went there directly to "Shelby American Inc" and was transformed there into a spectacular steam engine.
The car is so far also additionally unique because it has an automatic transmission. The new automatic transmission (a version built by Ford licenses ZF transmission 6R80) is not only absolutely stable, but is also convenient to move in urban traffic. A GT350 with automatic, one could indeed in Shelby also order, but you then only got the version supplied without compressor, which does not correspond to the notion of a "right" Shelby. After long negotiations with the Shelby people in Las Vegas, then the Shelby "American" built automatic GT350 (440 hp) (the tuning garage of Shelby American) was subsequently in Shelby "Motorsports" provided with a Kenne Bell Supercharger (now 624 hp ). There are also plenty of badges in the engine compartment, which manifest these further conversion. Thus, it is likely to be the world's only -GT350 built by Shelby "Automatic" supercharged. In addition, then TCI Automatic shifter was installed.
Many other modifications to the chassis, interior, optics, etc were performed.
