American vehicles are licenses in Europe by a “single approval” (German: Einzelabnahme). Lincoln or US-imported Chrysler have never any Homoligation or CoC = Certificate of Conformity.
The same is valid for any other import vehicle, like Hummer H2, Mustang, Navigators etc..
For licensing in most European countrys it is very helpful to have a German registration, where all technical datas are included. In US registrations (title) or english registrations (UK registration certificate) are no technical datas included.
