    How can Ford call it a Capri when it's a Focus Coupe? - or is that AutoExpress getting carried away with themselves again?! lol

    Personally I think it's fugly - doesn't do anything for me.

    I like the look of it, but it's not really a new incarnation of the Capri, or even a fitting tribute to it. It's just an old but revered name being put on a Focus coupe, which I think cheapens it a bit.

    Agreed the name is wrong but it looks much better than that horrible thing VX have stuck the Astra badge on, you can bet it will handle a lot better than the VX too. I would have to see one in the flesh as we all know what auto express are like!
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Being a former Capri multi owner I'd better have a say on this, out of the six I owned this one was probably my favorite until it effectively got written off, I say effectively because someone joined a dual carriageway in front of me in lane two at about 6 mph and then made up a story of lies to ensure the insurance companies went knock for knock.




    Anyway back to the new one, it's nothing like a traditional Capri in shape, and I reckon that on it's own will make it sell, Ford has messed around with the Probe and the Cougar in the past, both are/were buckets imo, this time it's an old name on a new gen car, I saw a Sirocco a few days ago and thought how far away from the original it was, the Corrado was a good step up at the time in keeping with the 2 former Sirocco's, but the latest one is a whole new idea with an old name, also how would Ford blend something 2009 Capri in with the current styling of the range, I think they've been bold and I think they will get the reward on that.

    I had a black Y reg ('82) 2.0S and loved it to bits. Possibly the most fun* I've ever had in a car, especially in the wet! The thing was bomb proof, too; the cambelt snapped once, did no damage to the valves and only took 15 minutes to replace at the cost of a few quid.

    I do hope they don't use the Capri name on the Focus Coupé, it deserves to go on a deserving successor.
