The Ford Capri is a fastback coupé which was produced from 1969 to 1986 at Ford’s main German plant in Cologne-Niehl, later at the Saarlouis plant and also at the English plant in Halewood. The developers pursued the concept of a sporty car that would be solid and affordable, as an answer to the American Ford Mustang. Measured by current sports car standards, the Capri offered plenty of space for 4 people with luggage. Almost unchanged from the Ford Taunus was the chassis with the McPherson strut front axle and the rigid rear axle with leaf spring suspension. The first generation, the original Capri, was built until 1973. The Capri II left the factory until 1977, when it was replaced by the Capri III. The Capri was available in many equipment variants. The L version was the basic model, the XL version was more luxuriously equipped. The GT version appealed to the sporty buyer group. The RS version brought the manufacturer countless sporting successes with the drivers Stuck, Mass, Glemser, Ludwig, Lauda or Todt (the later Ferrari team boss in F1) in circuits, hill climbs or rallies.
A total of 1.9 million vehicles from the successful Ford Capri series were sold.
