Full description


A desirable Ford Capri 280 Brooklands build 114 with only 12,037 miles  
Body-coloured grille, lamp bezels and door mirrors, bodyside mouldings, power assisted steering, front and rear spoilers, tailgate wash/wipe, tinted glass all round, tilting/sliding steel sunroof, ammeter and oil pressure gauge, tachometer, quartz analogue clock, Ford ESRT 32PS electronic radio cassette, electric aerial, courtesy lights, perforated black headlining, three-spoke leather covered steering wheel, leather gear knob, 50/50 split folding rear seats, boot light, instrument brightness control.

An instant classic the moment it rolled off the production line this very limited edition Capri 280 is finished in the only exclusive colour available, Brooklands Green Metallic, (Code T7), and has an almost flawless paint finish.  All exterior trim items and decals are pristine and the glass is number plate etched.  A removable sunroof deflector is fitted and additional security Yale locks were fitted from new.  Correct factory under bonnet identification plates are intact including the metal plate with the ‘Brooklands’ inscription.  Two minute dings can be pointed out under correct lighting and the vehicle has never been detailed thus retaining a desirable factory standard appearance craved by purists and exactly as Ford intended.  Simply breathtaking.

This last-of-the-line models interior is distinguished by seats fully trimmed with luxurious, high quality Raven leather with Burgundy piping and are Recaro designs.  The deep pile grey carpeting is spotless and the black perforated headlining is tight and clean along with the leather covered steering wheel and gear knob, all commensurate with the incredibly low miles covered.  There are absolutely no cracks to the dash and minor veins/leather fade to the driver seat is barely visible.  All controls and gauges fully function including the two-speed heater fan, analogue quartz clock and electronic cassette player.  The rear parcel-shelf is incredible.  This is a very exclusive and iconic 80’s interior exactly true to the manufactures intentions.

The Capri 2.8i was entrusted to Fords Special Vehicle Engineering group, (SVE), who added a Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection system, an oil/water heat exchanger, viscous coupled fan and an improved radiator making this models 158 BHP capable of 130mph and 0-60mph in 7.9 seconds.  The engine is smooth and quiet whilst producing an unmistakable burble and a full stainless exhaust system that mimics the original has been fitted at considerable cost.  The 5 speed gearbox is light and progression through the range is precise. 

This 280 Capri is fitted with the factory correct and unique 7-spoke 7X15 inch alloy wheels and have never been refurbished thus showing minor marks.  Michelin Pilot Sport 195/50 ZR50 tyres are fitted and are as new.  The spare has never been fitted and retains the original Pirelli Cinturato P7 tyre.  The hydraulic dual-line servo-assisted brakes with ventilated front discs unique on the 2.8i stop the car quickly and in a straight line. 

Coveted by collectors the limited edition Capri 280 is the most difficult ‘car you promised yourself’ as only 1038 were produced to celebrate the last of a famous line.  GG10972 is build number 114 and has only had two former keepers from new.  The previous owner, Mr Roseby, worked as the Quality Engineer at Fords Transmission Plant for 40 years and wanted the very best, lowest mileage 280 Capri money could buy.  His standards are very high and this 12,037 mile example reflects this passion for the best.  A unique and rare opportunity now awaits a lucky new custodian.
