MK III History (2)

(Haynes Publishing 1987)

Mechanically there were many subtle but important improvements. The suspension was upgraded with the gas filled Bilstein dampers available as standard on all models, and thicker anti-roll bars on the sports models. The engine range remained the same, with some improvements to the 1300 and 2.0 Litre. 2.3 litre V6 engines were available in mainland Europe.

As with the MkII the range of trim options available was refined. There was the base model followed by L, GL and Ghia as the top of the range. The "S" sport models were also available. As the production of the MkIII developed there were many changes and delections to the range. Throughout this final run of Capris there were many special additions and improvements, with the Capri 280 "Brooklands" being the last Capri available.
