The lucky ones had a V6 version which was originally the much loved and lamented Essex 3.0 litre or the later model 2.8 Cologne that came equipped with a sophisticated Bosch fuel injection system.

By the early 1980's the Capri was quite a refined animal with a new 5-speed gearbox, improved interiors and more reliable running gear. The V6 2.8 Injection Special introduced in 1981 was the most refined Capri ever, with breathtaking performance in a surrounding of leather, limited slip and metallic paint! Many fine examples of these cars still exist today.
