1986 Ford Capri 5.0 V8 Coyote -PRICE REDUCED END OF MARCH For Sale
Entered at Coy's Of London auction Feb 16/17 2019 - London ExCel Centre
This Capri is one of a kind. Unique car. No other like it in the world. Priced at £44000
It was built for a TV series called Goblin Works Garage. It was sponsored by Quest and Discovery Channel.
First appeared on TV in the UK in January 2018.
I've owned around 50 Capris in the past 30 years. Never had one like this before.
I have created 2 pages for your perusal. One is the SPECIFICATION page. The GALLERY page is in the usual page as shown on here.
The Capri started out its life as a Black MK3 2.8 injection. It has a meticulous document history file when it was in it's pre modified state.
The car was faultless, fabulous bodywork and a perfect blank canvas for a daring project such as this.
The V8 Capri project was one of 6 undertaken by Goblin Works and the consensus is that the Capri was the publics favourite.
The TV episode could have easily been a 2 hour programme to enable Capri buffs and engineers the facility to gorge themselves on the whole build. Be that as it may, when TV and advertisers call the shots - you get what you get.
So, the car was sketched out and agreed to be built as a V8 with the Ford Coyote 5.0 V8 motor as used in the 2017 Mustang GT.
I'll not list any of the spec here - see SPECIFICATION on brooklands280.com For Sale page to get the low down.
The car was completed inside of 6 months or so. Total costs as of November 2017 - £55,000.
Since then another £2000 has been spent perfecting the car for every day use and driver comfort.
The Capri on it's debut did a 12 second 1/4 mile at Santa Pod, with 2 people in it.
The top speed according to calculations is just over 170mph.
No, not What Have You. Why build it, why buy it?
The brief was to make a Capri like no other. Mission achieved!
Make it go like it looks and engineer it professionally - Mission accomplished.
Why buy it?
Well, I was smitten in the first 2 minutes at NEC Classic Show, "it had me at Hello"!
My intention was/is to show the car and to give people the up close and personal look at the only Capri in the world that will destroy Porches, Ferraris and Audi R8s!
I took it out in May 2018 to it's first 2 shows just as a chance to stretch its legs. Never entered in any competition as such.
However, it won Gold at CCI Nationals and Best in Show at Pure Ford Castle Combe out of 500 amazing Fords. Won Best Modified MK3 in Luxembourg 2018 Capri Revival
The Capri is booked for it's last show at Santa Pod 30th September 2018. If not sold - it will be stored until sold.
Well, if you are the one person in a million that would want this creation - call me and have a chat. Can't hurt.
As a rider I would say that this car is serious metal. It is not for the average Capri or classic car owner. It may look a bit stealth but it is pure adrenaline and in the wrong hands a WMD.
So, yes a bit of a strange advert admittedly, but then it's a strange Capri.
If you are genuinely interested to buy, please call me 07974 000857
