You Could Own This Race-Proven Ford Capri RS3100 Group 2 Touring Car

Having made a killing in the States after the launch of the first-generation Mustang, Ford wanted to recreate its success across the pond. As such, it took the internals from a Cortina and shoved them into a spritely little coupe known as the Capri. With its fastback styling, range of engine options, and responsive chassis, it proved immensely popular and sold nearly 1.9 million units over the course of its lifetime.

The Capri you see before you is a Group 2 RS3100 that was originally built by Ric Wood Motorsport for competition in the Peter Auto Historic Touring Cup. Under the hood, it hides a 3.4L Cosworth-developed GAA V6 that produces an impressive 430hp when mated to a 5-speed ZF transmission. What’s more, the car has been stripped back to the bare necessities and lightened as much as possible, allowing it to come in at just a little over 1,000kg (2,205lbs) — nearly 150kg (331lbs) lighter than a BMW 3.0 CSL. Having racked up no shortage of wins for Wood and other drivers like Richard Meaden and Gerard Lopez, this Capri is now being offered completely serviced with zero hours on the engine, gearbox, and all of its componentry.
