The Ford Capri is a fastback coupé built by the United States-based Ford Motor Company for the European market between 1968 and 1986, designed by Philip T. Clark, who was also involved in the design of the Ford Mustang. It used the mechanical components from the Mk2 Ford Cortina and was intended as the European equivalent of the Ford Mustang. The Capri went on to be highly successful for Ford. A wide variety of engines were used in the car throughout its production lifespan, which included the Essex and Cologne V6 at the top of the range.
The Capri Mk III was referred to internally as "Project Carla", and although little more than an update of the Capri II, it was often referred to as the Mk III. The first cars were available in March 1978, and sold very well initially. The concept of a heavily facelifted Capri II was shown at the 1976 Geneva show: a Capri II with a front very similar to the Escort RS2000 (with four headlamps and black slatted grille), and with a rear spoiler, essentially previewed the model some time before launch. In addition, the Mk III featured improved aerodynamics, leading to improved performance and economy over the Mk II. The trademark quad headlamps were introduced, while the bonnet's leading edge was pulled down over the top of the headlamps, making the appearance more aggressive.

The Capri was used extensively in the TV series The Professionals in the early 1980s, with characters Bodie driving a silver and Doyle a gold Capri.

From July 1981 to September 1982, German RS dealers marketed a limited edition, Zakspeed inspired, left-hand drive only, 'Werksturbo' model capable of 220 km/h (137 mph). Based on the 3.0 S, this derivative featured widened Series X bodywork, front and rear 'Ford Motorsport' badged spoilers, deep 7.5j four-spoked RS alloy wheels fitted with Pirelli P7 235/60VR13 tyres and an RS badged engine. The engine was based on a normally aspirated carburetor equipped 2.8-litre Cologne V6, Ford Granada (Europe) engine using electronic ignition, a tuftrided crankshaft, heavy duty head gaskets and oil pump, an oil cooler and a single Garrett T4 turbocharger providing 5.4 psi of boost, a limited slip differential, Bilstein dampers all around, an anti dive kit, uprated RS anti roll bars and single rear leaf springs, the engine put out 188 Hp at 5500 rpm. Figures of around 200 produced examples are common, but numbered transmission tunnels possibly indicate 155 conversions were made.
They wanted to built 200, but then when DTM changed the regulations there was no need to keep on making them. There are definitely 58 survivors, and there are 77 on the register in total.

This example comes from Switzerland. You can find in the register that four Werksturbo cars with chassis in a row from CJ14010 to CJ14013 built in May 1982 went to Switzerland from new, with this one first registered there on the 1st of February 1983. It has an original service book. A collector's car of which only 155 examples were built and only 58 are know to survive. Comes with Czech registration documents.
