The Capri is perhaps one of the most European-looking cars Ford ever produced. That might be because Ford designed the car for the European market in an attempt to reproduce the success the Mustang saw in America. The Capri was broadly accepted and for years was available with a variety of powerplants to increase appeal to different audiences. In America, the Capri was marketed by the Mercury division as “the sexy European.” Its long sloping nose and fastback coupe rear were a form that resembled the Mustang but also fit the form of popular Japanese coupes of the era. With its spry 3.1 liter motor in this homologation model, the RS3100 will get the jump on similarly-classed cars. Dieter Glemser and fellow German Jochen Mass both won European Touring Car Championships in Capris, thus proving their adeptness to the track.
