Capri Muscle Portfolio 1974-87
The entry level Capri was a 1300cc model but real performance started much further up the range. In Germany 126mph was available with the fuel-injected 2.6-litre V6 engine, while in Britain a 3-litre V6 gave 113mph on Mk I models and 117mph on Mk IIs and a big-bore V6 in the RS3100 offered 125mph. The most collected version is the 2.8-litre, fuel-injected car available in both Britain and Germany. In the USA German-built Capris were marketed under the Mercury name between 1979 and 1983. This is a book of contemporary road and comparison tests, specification and technical data, driver's impressions, new model introductions, conversions, suspension, long term survey and restoration.
