You've got a pretty solid plan laid out as far as getting education/training in your area of interest. I'd encourage you to consider the following schools that specializes in automotive engineering since you're particularly interested in the subject - http://www.edmunds.com/car-reviews/top-10/top-10-automotive-colleges-and-universities-in-the-us.html. In addition to that, if you're determined to move to Europe for career opportunities in supercar/hypercar industry, why not study in Europe for graduate school (MSc/PhD)? There are a lot of great school in Europe for automotive engineering - check out this link -http://www.masterstudies.com/Masters-Degree/Automotive-Engineering/Europe/. Often, recruiters hire people from local schools - in that regards - it'd help if you studied at a school in Europe.
Depending on how well you do at school and how determined you are about your career goals, I think it's pretty viable to be successful in the automotive industry. Hope this helps.
