High Performance Capris Gold Portfolio 1969-87
The Capri was born in the heady days of the performance-orientated sixties when fuel was plentiful. It was not long before the Capri emerged as a potent GT in its own right backed by a comprehensive racing programme. Fuel injection was introduced with the RS2600 in 1970. The millionth Capri was made in August 1973 in Germany but by 1976 production had ceased at Halewood. Sales had dropped by 1975 but the re-skinned Mk II gave the car new impetus, as did the introduction of a hatchback. The Mk III got a more up-market look and added practicality. The last cars were produced in December 1986 in Germany.
