Ford Capri was more than a car, was the symbol of a generation of young fans. Legend might return in the near future with a modern look, but with the same orientation and teen prices.
Ford Capri was founded in 1969 by the enthusiasm of European engineers who wanted to replicate the success of the Ford Mustang on the American continent. More discreet than the present American model and adapted to the environment of the Old Continent, Ford Capri was the escape from an ordinary road of young Europeans. With favorable prices but for the younger generation, the model quickly gained its place among the story of the coupe in the 70′s.
Sensing potential models that are sounding retro, very popular with young people in recent years, Ford has not confirmed his plans to revive the Capri, but there are speculation in maintaining a complicit silence. British Auto Express gave the books to anticipate the upcoming shows. Drawings are created with ingredients that combine elements presented for the Ford Visos concept, which was unveiled in 2003, but has forgotten the classic model lines.
In fact, Ford Capri might appeal to the same recipe as in the case of Volkswagen Scirocco, namely the compact development platform, which is used by the American manufacturer on Focus. Capri will have a seating configuration on February 2 and will take internal elements of the current line of Focus and Fiesta. Auto Express advances the possibility of an ST version with the same engine from the Ford Focus ST, but we dream on a RS.
