SUMMARY

A very smart example of the limited-edition Brooklands Capri with just over 32,000 miles.

DESCRIPTION

  • The limited-edition 280 Brooklands was the last iteration of the Capri, bringing to an end a 20-year model lineage
  • Originally badged as the Capri 500, the name was changed to Capri 280 and some 1,038 examples were ultimately built
  • They were only available in Brooklands Green and consequently they have become known as Brooklands Capris
  • Based on the 2.8 Injection Special, the Brooklands boasted larger 15-inch alloy wheels and the fully-optioned interior was trimmed in Raven Black leather
  • Powered by a Cologne V6 engine developing 160bhp with a 5-speed gearbox, limited-slip differential and power rack and pinion steering
  • Destined to be an instant classic, the Brooklands Capri quickly sold out and they command a significant premium today
  • This smart example has covered just 32,087 miles from new
  • With its current owner for the last nine years, and just three previous keepers
  • Recent recommissioning (October 2022) included five new tyres, front discs/pads and a new battery
  • History file includes lots of old MOTs. Current MOT valid until 12/10/2023 (no advisories)
