A rare thing but probably still less hiorses than a modern 2.0 4cyl Ford! Should sound nice though....

I was going to mention the South Africans put V8s into a lot of the Ford range at the time, mostly you see Capris as if they needed more power through the back wheels

I remember the Perana Capris from back in the day, and iirc a few found their way to the UK. A bit of background:

This is NOT a picture of the day but makes my blood boil.

This is NOT a Capri and is everything that it bad with the car industry today. Using classic names for SUV shiiiiiiiiit.

By all means make an electric SUV as everyone’s doing it but don’t use the name from an iconic Coupe….Ford feckers
