PERFORMANCE: Max theoretical speed 171mph @6500rpm, Standing 1/4 mile 12.1 seconds (tested) (this was the car's first run at Santa Pod, we were only allowed a few runs so these times could be improved).
INTERIOR: Original interior, seats and door cards re-trimmed - same carpet and headliner because it was in such good condition. This car looked like it had been living in someone's house, it was so clean!
EXTERIOR: Original colour was black - we had it re-sprayed in black with a satin grey GT stripes. We added wide wheel arches to house those huge wheels and tyres, we also took the bumpers off front and back giving the Capri a new face and rear end. It has a custom grill with removable headlight covers (to make it road legal) and a custom front panel with swaged holes to let in more air allowing us to cool that Coyote as much as possible. We wanted to simplify the silhouette whilst retaining that beautiful Capri look giving this car a whole new stance and enhancing the "mean".
