capri280 35th Anniversary Event and Group 5th Anniversary

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 celebrated this landmark year throughout 2022 at all of our events. We hosted a special celebratory event at the British Motor Museum at Gaydon in Warwickshire over the weekend of 16/17th July. We were joined by members of European Capri clubs from Belgium. We also had the largest number of the capri280 cars attend the event in recent times!

December 17th is a Special day for the capri280 Group as it will be our 5th Anniversary of the formation of the Group. We have come a long way and achieved a lot during this time.

Please come along and visit outr stand at the NEC Classic Car Show. We are in Hall 8 Stand number 095! If not a member you can join up. You can also purchase items of Regalia and spares from the growing range offerred by the Group. Or you can just talk Capri!
