The special ones
Capri RS2600 The original homologation special; 3532 built. German-built, Lhd-only and powered by a 150bhp, 2637cc long-stroke version of the Cologne V6 with Kugelfischer fuel injection.
Capri RS3100 Last-gasp Uk-built, Rhd-only MKI homologation model; 3.1-litre carbfed Essex V6 had 148bhp but more torque than RS2600. Spoilers front and rear reduced lift. Only 248 made.
Perana MKI 3000 with a 5.0-litre small-block V8 squeezed under the bonnet by South-african tuner Basil Green. Modified suspension and a Falcon rear axle helped tame its 285bhp.
X-pack Series X kits for MKII and MKIII targeted performance, handling, roadholding and appearance. Ford advertised ‘as much or as little as you like’ could be done.
Tickford Capri Base 2.8i re-engineered to produce the ultimate Capri. Expensive and no two the same – 205bhp turbo V6, leather and Wilton carpet interior, disc brakes all round, and wild styling.
Zakspeed Turbo Turbo special for Germany was Lhdonly; 200 made. Zakspeed added a Garrett turbocharger to the 2792cc V6 for 188bhp, plus GRP wheelarch extensions and big spoilers.
