The 186 HP dry-sump-lubricated 1.6L BDA Cosworth DOHC inline 4-cylinder engine wails like few others, thanks in part to the 2-inch dual exhaust system and 45 DCOE Webers. A ZF 5-speed manual transmission sends the power to a locking differential rear end, and when everything conspires at once, the car will sprint from 0-60 MPH in about 6 seconds flat. Not earth shattering, but remember two things: one, it was fed by dual Webers that, along with several internal modifications, made the car more of a puller at higher RPMs; and two, it’s a 4-cylinder pulling a 2,500-pound body around. For 1980, it was a major accomplishment. Built by Ford Motor Company with custom, all-steel bodywork by Ron Fournier, the Capri is not for those seeking to blend in, but then again, it is a race car in street car clothing.
