Bringing back the Ford Capri?

I heard a delightful rumour the other day. The kind of rumour that, were it to come true, would make car nuts all around the world feel both excited and nostalgic at the same moment. That would cause a riot to get to you nearest Ford dealer, and which would make Ashes to Ashes even more popular than it already is.

The rumour is that Ford are considering bringing back the oh-so-famous and oh-so-popular Ford Capri. Exciting eh?!

The Ford Capri is such a famous car that it is hard to sum up what exactly it was about this late 60s/early 70s car that made it so special. Probably it was the iconic design – this was a car that was incredibly stylish in all its different incarnations. The sweeping bonnet and compact size set it apart from all other cars on the market, making it funky, desirable, and a real status symbol.

The problem with bringing back this amazing car, however, is that Ford seem to have gone a little mad. I don’t say this lightly – they have taken that amazing designed and the concepts they have churned out are a little disappointing. Some of the initial ideas did harp back to that original design (in a slightly Chevy Camaro way…), but generally they seem a little disturbingly similar to a sporty looking Ford Fiesta, a BMW 1 series hatchback. Not good. Just not right.

    YES,YES,YES! How many times did i get to kiss the girl in my old capri – lots, thankyou very much. Bring it back.
    I must say the concept looks like a Jag – no surprise there then! They must be really cutting back on the design teams – everything looks like a jag. I’m not complaining though but don’t they?

    this Ford Capri ‘reloaded’ is a stunner. Before I click the read more button, I said to myself, what are they thinking in bringing back that Capri, but when I see how they remodel, redesign it…this one is a smasher….
