MkIII Capri 2.8 Injection

Capri 2.8 injection
(Ford Motor Company Ltd)

The Capri 2.8 Injection was the first offering of the new Special Vehicle Engineering (SVE) operation that had recently been set up in Dunton, Essex. The "Cologne" 2.8 engine had previously been offered in the Capri in America, but as a normally aspirated unit. SVE added a Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection system, an oil/water heat exchanger, viscous coupled fan and an improved radiator.

The brakes were upgraded to 9.76in ventilaed discs and the suspension was upgraded. Power steering, 7x13 inch alloy wheels, Recaro seats, a puch button stereo and sunroof completed the package for the most luxurious Capri yet.

In September 1984 the 2.8i received a small facelift with seven spoke RS alloy wheels, half leather interior, body coloured door mirrors, grille and headlamp surrounds, it was the 2.8 injection special. Mechanically the only improvement was the addition of a limmited slip differential rear axle. Unusually for Ford the optional extras were few, all you could add was metallic paint, and a two tone colour scheme.
