Ford Capri 2.8 RS Turbo (Zakspeed)Advert ID: 38936 £48,995 GBP
Only 155 LHD 2.8 RS Turbo Capris were built by Ford Cologne from July 1981 until September 1982, and they were only available through Ford´s German RS dealers. Inspired by the wild Zakspeed Group 5 racers, the ‘Werksturbo’ model was capable of an impressive 220 km/h (137 mph).
Based on the 3.0 S, this derivative featured widened Series X bodywork, front and rear ‘Ford Motorsport’ spoilers, deep 7.5 inch four-spoked RS alloy wheels and an RS badged engine. The engine was based on a normally aspirated carburetor equipped 2.8-litre Cologne V6, along with competition derived crank and a single Garrett T4 turbo providing 5.4 psi of boost. This unique engine setup was enough to produce nearly 200bhp. Today, these ultra-rare Capri Turbos are very much sought after and rarely come available on the open market.
The current owner is well-known in motorsport circles and heavily involved in the recent resurgence of the 1970’s and 80’s Touring Cars we all enjoy at the Goodwood Members Meeting and other prestigious events. The car is immaculate and ready to be driven to the season’s historic racing events!
