shipping my car to the USA to register it

Hi guys!

So I know this sounds crazy but bear with me.

I own a 2015 Mustang GT that has been exported to Switzerland in 2015 by its original owner. The car has a bunch of simple modifications, but enough to make it impossible for me to get through MFK and get Swiss registration (at least with my financial abilities).

So, as I intend to move to the US in the near future anyways, I am thinking about registering the car in the US. I spoke to some people, importers, freight handlers, etc. All I'd need to do is ship the car over, get the customs paperwork filled out to get back the original title, thus allowing me to register the car to my Montana LLC. Then, ship the car back. I'd be able to drive the car for one year legally, then I'd need to get the car out of the country for at least three months (Does any country count or does it need to be its origin country?) Insurance through Zurich.

I'm sure there are some people here that know much more than me and can spot some caveats to my plan? Or give me tips?

And no, returning the car to OEM specs is not an option.
