Vehicle History


In 1981, Ford's faithful 3.0-litre, V6 was dropped from the line-up, making way for a new, sporty, version called the 2.8 Injection. The Capri 2.8 Injection revived the range and kept the car in production several years longer than Ford had originally planned. In 1984, the 2.8 injection model was the subject of a substantial upgrade and was known as the Capri Injection Special. This development used Recaro half leather seats and included a limited slip differential. Externally, the car could be easily distinguished by the seven spoke RS wheels, its colour coded grille and headlamp surrounds.
