The legendary Ford Capri 2.8 Injection needs no introduction, and amongst the most special of cars is the Turbo Technics conversion, a semi-official recognised and very highly regarded Ford upgrade. This exceptional example is finished in Ford Cardinal Red, (Code R2), boasting a stunning deep gloss shine and uniform finish. The outstanding paintwork is virtually unmarked with only one tiny mark to the offside rear wing. The underside is detailed heaven and all trims pieces and decals are near perfect. A beautifully presented example of the iconic and very rare Turbo Technics Capri with full X Factor!
The interior of this 2.8 Injection Special evokes a sense of true nostalgia with the supportive Recaro seats looking fantastic finished in the grey high-grade leather with ‘Strobe’ pattern fabric centre panels. The driver’s outer bolster is firm and fully intact with only very light wear. The deep pile grey carpeting is spotless as are the door cards and original parcel shelf which are straight and uncut. Incredibly, the dashboard has no cracks and all controls and switchgear are excellent. A sought after digital Ford radio cassette is fitted, (not connected), with a modern item professionally installed in the glove box. Correct and neatly fixed Turbo Technics boost control switch and boost gauge are a hint as to the under bonnet workings!
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Turbo Technics, was founded in 1981 by Geoffrey Kershaw who’s most famous development prior was the Saab Turbo of the 1970’s. The firm developed a turbo conversion based on Ford SVE’s Capri 2.8 Injection, from which standard car credentials of 158bhp, 130mph top speed and 0-60mph in 7.9 seconds were significantly improved upon with this full F16 kit to develop 230bhp, (a notable increase on the standard F9 200bhp kit which achieved 143mph top speed and 0-60mph in 6.5 seconds). A Turbo Technics plate affixed to the inner nearside wing in the spotless engine bay confirms the conversion carried out by them in 1987 complete with serial number. The uprated 5 speed gearbox is direct and progression through the range is effortless thanks to a full rebuild in March 2015 as featured on the Kings Lynn Capri Club website.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
This Capri is fitted with upgraded 7J x 15 7-spoke 280 Brooklands alloy wheels in perfect condition and with genuine RS centre caps. Matching Yokohama 195/50 R15 tyres have masses of tread remaining. The hydraulic dual-line servo-assisted brakes with ventilated front discs and uprated four-pot callipers stop the car quickly and in a straight line thanks to a recent documented overhaul.
Registered new on 1st September 1983, the supplying Ford Main Dealer was C.H. Soans and Sons of Leamington Spa. When the car was less than four years old it was taken to Turbo Technics in Northampton for their specialist Engineers to carry out the full blown Type F16 conversion, a very expensive upgrade from the standard F9 kit. The Turbo Technics information plate affixed to the inner nearside wing confirms the completion date by them of the 1st June 1987. There are Turbo Technics invoices for service work and parts dating back to 1994 with the most recent being maintenance work carried out by them in 2015 to the sum of £1032 to help offer piece of mind. This includes upgrades supplied by them in order to keep up with company developments including a TT200 turbocharger. Furthermore, a colossal history file contains many receipts and invoices throughout as well as MOT certificates dating back to the early 1990’s. In 1995 the vehicle was subject to an insurance claim but was put back on the road after light repairs. Continually enjoyed until 2009/10 when the car was subject to an incredible full strip down and rebuild. The very best donor vehicle was sourced and one that had never been welded and was completely free from rust. A CD ROM fully documents the build with 100’s of photographs showing meticulous removal and refurbishment of individual components as well as painstaking detailing of the underside and engine compartment. The current owner, Mr Justin Cook, has enjoyed the show circuit with the car since and is a highly respected member of the Kings Lynn Capri Club with the car featuring extensively on their website. Completing the history file is the original service book, handbooks and operating guides as well as comprehensive Turbo Technics original literature. An exhilarating machine in every respect.
