A V8 Ford Capri launches from the start line of Stage 13 of the Tasmanian Tarmac Challenge Rally October 2008.
Ford of South Africa assembled the Capri from 1970 to 1972 with a similar model range to the UK. No facelift models or RS variants were marketed in South Africa.
About 500 Capris were converted by specialist Basil Green Motors to run the 302 Ford Windsor V8 engine. These models were known as the Capri Perana and were very successful in local touring car events, winning the 1970 South African championship and, in a different format, the 1971 championship as well.
No Mk II and Mk III Capris were exported to, or built in South Africa.
Test Drive the 1974 Ford Capri V8!
Hi! This is Agent 8771's 1974 Ford Capri, featuring a high-output 302 V8
and Borg-Warner T5 transmission hooked to a Ford 9 inch positraction rear.
This car originally had the wheezy Pinto 2000 cc engine and 4 speed trans,
so it is much better now. A nice, original, rust-free unit brought up from
the States to save it from the recyclers yard. Sweet vintage aluminum slot
mags, nerf bars, and diamond-tuft package tray finish this Capri off in
classic 70's style! Hope you like it as much as I do!

Super 2000, also known as S2000, is an FIA specification and classification
for production based race cars. The specification is split to cover both
rally and touring car racing. Super 2000 rally cars are also permitted to
compete in Super 2000 World Rally Championship events. The goal of the
Super 2000 classification is to allow more manufacturers and privateers to
race by reducing the cost of a competitive car. The World Rally
Championship currently has Five manufacturers fielding teams, while private
teams rely on older cars from current manufacturers or from "works" teams
that have left the WRC, such as Subaru, Škoda, or Mitsubishi. The World
Touring Car Championship, which is open to Super 2000 cars, currently has
six makes of vehicles competing, these being BMW, SEAT, Honda, Chevrolet,
Lada and Volvo, with independent teams generally using older cars from
