1987 Ford Capri Mk3 2.8ltr


Specifications


Description

The final – and some would say ultimate – Capri arrived in 1978.

Designated Project Carla, the re-invigorated coupe looked mean and moody, and proved that the Ford stylists had not lost their magic touch.

Once again, the Capri became the pushy young exec's weapon of choice, and the ‘S' versions did all they needed to impress potential buyers who may have otherwise been tempted to go and buy a Manta. Ford dropped the Essex engine in 1981, replacing it with the ‘Cologne' V6 – this creating one of the coolest-named cars in the world – The Capri Injection¦

Boasting 160bhp and a 0-60mph time of 7.7 seconds, the Capri was able, once again, to punch above its weight, and give the snobs from Germany and Italy a bloody nose.

In 1987, time was called on one of the defining cars of a generation, and after a run of nearly two million cars, the book was closed on a legend.
