F1 Cosworth DFV V8 Engine
short clip from a 1981 documentary on F1 and focusing on the Williams team
and the use of the Cosworth V8 engine.
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!
Bruce's 1954 Lincoln Capri ~ A very sweet ride in Long Beach, California
My old pal Bruce MacRae just bought this sweet ride. A beautiful 1954
The Lincoln Capri was a full-size automobile sold by Ford's Lincoln luxury
Competing against the Cadillac Series 62 and Packard Series 400, 14,342
Capris were sold in its debut year, and nearly double that, 26,640, in
1953. It readily outsold its stablemate, the Cosmopolitan, each year until
the Cosmopolitan's demise.
In the October, 1952 issue of Popular Mechanics, a Lincoln Capri was
tested. 0-60 mph time was 14.8 seconds, while the quarter-mile was 21.3
seconds. At 40 mph, fuel economy was recorded at 21mpg.
In 1955, the Capri featured a new 225 hp (168 kW) 341 cu in (5.6 L) Lincoln
Y-Block V8 (with greater displacement and, at 8.5:1, higher compression
than before), featuring a four-barrel carburetor, mated to a standard
(Ford-built) 3-speed turbo-Drive
automatic transmission. Air conditioning became an option for the first
Riding on a 123.0 in (3,120 mm) wheelbase and measuring 215.6 in (5,480 mm)
overall, the 1955 Capri was offered as a two-door hardtop coupé (4,305 lb
(1,953 kg) shipping weight), two-door convertible (4,415 lb (2,003 kg)
shipping weight), or a four-door sedan (4,275 lb (1,939 kg) shipping
The Capri was also one of the first vehicles to offer an automatic
headlight dimmer as optional equipment. It sold 23,673 copies, amounting to
87% of Lincoln's total output that year, actually down from 29,552 in 1954.
Powered by the 317 cu in (5.2 L) Lincoln Y-block V8, Lincolns won the top
four spots in the Stock Car category of the Pan American Road Race in both
1952 and 1953. In 1954 (its final year) Lincolns took first and second

Partial throttle runs for fuel mapping. Dyno was set to sweep
1000-7000rpm in 18 seconds. Limiter at 6450rpm. Crash at 5400rpm most
likely due bad conrod bearing.

Best of Crash Rallye HD - Compilation 2013
Rally Crashes happened in 2012 and 2013 . Car accidents because of drifts .
The production-based cars with 1.6 L direct injection turbo engine and four-wheel drive are built to
World Rally Car regulations for racing across tarmac, gravel and snow. The
power output is limited to around 300 bhp (225 kW). Current cars in the
championship include the Citroën DS3 WRC, Ford Fiesta RS WRC and Mini WRC.
The WRC was formerly held for Group A and Group B rallycars. However, due
to the increasing power, lack of reliability and a series of fatal
accidents on the 1986 season, Group B was permanently banned. Later, in
1997, the Group A cars evolved into the WRC car spec, to ease the
development of new cars and bring new makes to the competition. In 2011,
new rules were introduced to encourage more manufacturers (and privateers)
to take part, because the recent economic downturn had prompted several
manufacturers to leave the championship.
Cars in the Production Car World Rally Championship are limited to
production-based cars homologated under Group N rules. Cars in the Super
2000 World Rally Championship are homologated under Super 2000 rules. Most
cars in the Junior World Rally Championship are homologated under Super
1600 rules, but Group N and selected Group A cars can also contest the
Starting in 2013,a new category of rally cars known as Group R were
introdued as a replacement to the Group A and Group N rally categories,
with cars classified under one of six categories based on their engine
capacity and type, wheelbase, and drivetrain. As a result no cars will be
homologated under Group A and Group N regulations and instead will be
reclassified under Group R. Parallel to this, the Super 2000 and Production
Car World Championships were restructured; Super 2000 and Group N cars were
merged into a single championship known as World Rally Championship-2
alongside R4 and R5 cars, whilst the Production Car World Championship was
completely reimagined as the World Rally Championship-3 for two-wheel drive
cars complying with R1, R2 and R3 regulations.
WRC Teams and Drivers
20 different manufacturers have won a World Rally Championship event,
and a further ten have finished on the podium.
Suzuki and Subaru pulled out of the WRC at the end of the 2008
championship, both citing the economic downturn then affecting the
automotive industry for their withdrawal. Mini and Ford both pulled out of
the WRC at the end of the 2012 championship, due to a similar economic
downturn affecting the European market.
A typical WRC team will consist of about 40 people on the events, with a
further 60--100 at the team base.
Manufacturers and manufacturer-backed teams usually have two or three
drivers participating in each rally who are eligible to score points. The
total number of crews (driver and his co-driver) in the rallies varied from
47 (Monte Carlo and Mexico) to 108 (Great Britain) during the 2007
In 2012, The Ford World Rally Team and The Mini WRC Team both announced
their departure from the World Rally Championships for the 2013 season.
Volkswagen and Hyundai will make their return to the championship in 2013
and 2014, respectively.Best of Crash Rallye HD Best of Crash Rallye HD Best

Zakspeed Ford Turbo Capri
Zakspeed Ford turbo Capri beim AvD
Oldtimer GP 2012 auf dem Nürburgring. Peter Zakowski fährt das Original
Meisterschaftsauto von 1981, mit dem Klaus Ludwig damals gewann.
Das Fahrzeug ist mit dem kleinen Motor der Division 2 bestückt mit 1,4l
In beiden Rennen sah Zakowski die Zielflagge wegen technischer Probleme
nicht. Im Rennen 1 bedrängt er Oliver Mathai im Porsche 935 und im Rennen
2 räumt er binnen kürzester Zeit das Feld von hinten auf.
Sowohl nach dem Training als auch nach dem ersten Rennen wurde am Fahrzeug
umfangreich gearbeitet. Der Ladedruck ist noch nicht eingestellt und
deshalb hat P.Zakowski die Hand häufiger mal am "Dampfrad".
Vom turbo Capri wurden insgesamt fünf
Fahrzeuge gebaut. Ein Fahrzeug wurde zerstört, eines zu einem Mustang umgebaut, ein Fahrzeug wurde
von Herbert Stenger bei Bergrennen eingesetzt, ein Fahrzeug baut Stefan
