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 collectable version is the 2.8-litre, fuel-injected car available in both Britain and Germany. 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. Models covered include: Capri II, 2800 V6, 3-litre Ghia, V6 Turbo, Mk II, 2000S GT, 2.8 V8, Capri II RS, Mako V8, 3000S, 3-litre X-pack, Oselli 230S, Allard 2.8i, Tickford 2.8T, 2.8i, Brimble Capri, RS 2800T, 2.8 Turbo, RS3100.
