The Capri is on its way back!

Published Date: 5th Jun 2009

In the same way that VW has resurrected the Scirroco, Ford are reinventing its famous Capri in the guise of the new Focus Coupe.

The new Focus Coupe will appeal to the young and style-conscious with a stylish yet practical body.

The design will feature a low roofline, diffuser-style lower bumper, roof spoiler and LED tail-lights at the rear. Short overhangs and large alloy wheels make it one of the chicest sports car in the compact range.

The engine range will be a 1.6-litre petrol, 2.0-litre petrol and a 1.6 TDCi. To help the Focus Coupe become even more fuel efficient will be the option of a Powershift twin-clutch gearbox offered in addition to a standard-fir manual transmission. Stop-Start technology is also expected to be available across the range.

The new Focus Coupe is expected to debut at a major motor show next year. So all you Capri fans are in for a real treat. What took you so long Ford?
