Capri 280 Brooklands 1986
This is one of many mini illustrated classic car guides I've created for the community. I hope you enjoy it and if you would like to find out more about the classic Ford Capri Mk3 car art featured in this guide please click here.
A final run of 2.8-litre injected models badged as the Capri 280, were introduced in March 1987. Painted in Brooklands dark green, with red and white coachlines, they were tastefully trimmed in leather and fitted with 7J X 15-in alloy wheels. Costing £11,999 each, just 1,038 280s were built making them instant classics. It represented a dignified end for Ford's sport coupe, which had seen continuous production for the 18 years from November 1968 until December 1986 and notched up a total of nearly 1.9 million copies.
