Capri 2.8i

Specialist supplier of Sports, Performance and Prestige vehicles



Reluctantly selling from our own family collection. This car has spent most of the last 6 years Dry stored in Southern Spain and has only ever been driven on dry roads for Classic Car Club days out. She has just travelled home to the UK in a covered transporter and will be MOT'd prior to delivery. This extraordinary example can only be described as pristine and I honestly believe you would struggle to find a better one offered for sale today.


This lovely example has been in our family collection since 2012 with the previous owner acquiring it in 1999. The car has been in Southern Spain since 2006 where it was lovingly restored to what you see here today. She has just travelled back in a covered transporter and upon delivery has been MOT'd and given a thorough inspection. The only faults found are the usual split in the top of the dash, very minor wear to drivers seat bolster and could do with some of the wiring tidied under the dash - Everything works, I'm just being hyper critical!

Finished in Metallic Titan/Mercury Grey metallic with light grey Recaro interior trim. The twin Black stripes are stuck on and easily removable should you wish.

Showing just 77,000 miles with 10K of those covered in the last 15 years. The car looks and drives superb. The service history file and manuals have been lost along the way so mileage could be higher but the car is very tight and therefore presumed genuine. The car must be seen and driven to be appreciated.

Over the last few years we had planned to compete in the Spanish Historic Road Rally championship and prepared the car accordingly. Some light but very sensible modifications including Bilstein Group 2 shock absorbers, 15" genuine Minilite Alloy wheels, Big front brakes, Unobtrusive Stainless steel exhaust and a K & N induction system. Really have transformed the car and made it such a joy to drive.

The car is rust free and very solid throughout. Excellent condition bodywork and mechanically sound including a fresh MOT bearing no advisories. With a little time and fettling, this car could easily be one of the best available.
