Ford Capri (1968-87)
"The car you always promised yourself" was, according to Ford, their Capri. In many ways this was the European version of the phenomenally successful Ford Mustang. That meant the car looked great, was fun to drive yet was still very affordable.
Designed at Ford's research centre in Dunton, Essex and codenamed Colt, this just-about four-seat coupé with a long bonnet pretty much replicated the success of its American cousin.
The final run of 1,038 Capris in 1987 were called the Capri 280. Finished in Brooklands green with 15-inch RS alloys 'Raven' leather trim with burgundy piping, it was a fitting end to a great car.
