capri280 35th Anniversary Event

2022 is the 35th Anniversary of the announcement by Ford Motor Company of the Final Limited Edition model of their Capri!
Ford ended production of nearly 2 million Capri cars during December 1986. 18 years production of the Capri ended on 19th December with a run of 1038 capri280 cars. Originally it was intended to produce just 500 of this tribute to the popular coupe called Capri 500. Plans changed and the car became capri280 all painted Brooklands green metallic with a red and white coach line. Full leather Raven Connolly Recaro interior and 15 inch seven spoke alloy wheels with Pirelli P7 low 50 profile tyres completed the package. 
All were imported to the UK from Ford's Niehl factory in Köln, Germany to be sold only in the UK.

capri280 Group will celebrate this landmark year throughout 2022 at all of our events. We will host a special celebratory event at the British Motor Museum at Gaydon in Warwickshire over the weekend of 16/17th July. All UK and European Capri clubs have been invited to attend. It is hoped that a large number of the 280 cars will attend.

Various activities will take place throughout the weekend. Saturday evening will have a HogRoast with minibar, musical entertainment and a presentation of awards by our Special Guest Sarah Crabtree formerly on TV's Bangers and Cash and now Evoke Classics. Former Ford employees and now renowned Motoring authors Steve Saxty and Jeremy Walton have also expressed interest in attending our event!
Please come along and enjoy our special event.
