The Capri 280 'Brooklands' was the run-out model of the legendary Ford coupé and featured a limited slip differential, full leather Recaro interior and 15-inch versions of the seven spoke 13-inch wheels fitted to the superseded Capri Injection Special. Ford originally intended to make 500 turbo-charged vehicles (by Turbo Technics) complete with gold alloy wheels but a change of production planning meant a name change to Capri 280 (commonly known as Brooklands after the colour of Green in which they were all painted), as the cars were simply the last models ran down the production line. A total of 1,038 Capri 280s were built.`Turbo Technics' was founded in 1981 by Geoff Kershaw, a former Garrett Ai-Research engineer who had worked on turbocharging Saab 99s and 900s. Turbo Technics turned their attentions to the Capris soon after. The advent of the definitive V6-engined 2.8i model in 1981 proved a superb platform for turbocharging and whilst standard cars offered 160 bhp, the Turbo Technics'conversions ranged from 200 bhp through to 280bhp. The tie-up with the Blue Oval paid dividends, with Ford being so impressed that they agreed to offer Turbo Technics-tweaked Capris through its dealerships, making them semi-official. Turbo Technics went on to modify other marques, and unlike many specialist tuners, they are still in business today continuing to offer their famous upgrades for the Capri, identical to those produced in the 80s and 90s.This 280 Brooklands was first registered in the UK on 5th August 1987 and is showing 5 former keepers from new. The car has recently been looked after by respected Ford engine specialist Ric Wood and he has carried out a fresh service. This included an oil change and replacement of perishable components.The car has covered a total mileage of over 50,000 and had a speedo change at circa 10,000 miles. Offered without reserve, we encourage bidders to contact the office prior to the auction for further details. The Capri Brooklands has become an icon of the1980s era and this example, with added boost, is ready for a new home.* Description amendment: It has come to our attention that this car was not converted by Turbo Technics but by a former owner, who carried out a complete restoration using a genuine Brooklands Capri shell.
