In 1984, the 2.8 injection model was the subject of a substantial upgrade and was known as the Capri Injection Special. This development used Recaro half leather seats and included a limited slip differential. Externally the car could easily be distinguished by the seven-spoke RS wheels and its colour coded grille and headlamp surrounds.

We are pleased to offer this very special UK right-hand drive Ford Capri 2.8 Injection Special, which was supplied by Cuff Miller Ford and first registered on 28th February 1987 to a Mr R. Gomm of Chichester. Finished in Schwarz Black with half leather Recaro seats, the car was driven infrequently and in 2001, was sold to a Mrs Tittle of Wrexham. Carefully stored throughout the early 2000s the car was then sold to a Mr G. Phipps of Banbury in 2010. An MOT certificate at this time records the mileage at only 5,301 miles.

Still wearing its dealer supplied registration plates, this car is in incredible condition throughout. Lift up the boot floor for instance and the original spare wheel has never been fitted to the car and the jack appears new. The interior is really impressive and the Recaro seats show little wear. The shut lines and the paint are both remarkable for a car that is now 30 years old.

Supplied with its original book pack containing all the driver's manuals and its original service book, there is even a business card from the Cuff Miller sales consultant who sold the car to the original owner. With a UK V5c and MOT tested until 26th May 2018, this car has covered only 8,330 miles from new! Whilst we can't warrant the mileage, we believe that the condition of the car is commensurate with the incredibly low distance this Capri has covered. Capris like this rarely come to market and this low mileage car offers a great opportunity for any classic Ford collector.
