No need to worry then as the Shelby's aren't sold outside of NA.

With luxury sedans, it's easy to shed weight. Ford will of course include plenty of CF and other lightweight materials, so things will be in check quite nicely. Not that it really matters, when you have 750hp or so though.

Maybe it's Ford's premarital gift to VW.
