In the 1980s, the CSD and the DR decided to procure dual-system locomotives to better cope with the steadily growing traffic and the cross-border traffic operations on the Berlin-Dresden-Prague connection.

The enhancement of the Decín-Prague connection to 160 km/h maximum speed made it necessary to upgrade some locomotives. From 1994, six Czech class 372 locomotives were adapted for faster international passenger traffic and operated under the class designation 371 “Turbobastard”. The CD moved the converted machines to the Prague depot.
