TTAC Photochop: New Ford Capri
FoMoCo made use of the "Capri" appellative a lot in the past on a diverse collection of vehicles: the UK Consul Capri of the ‘60s, the Australian convertible of the early ‘90s and a whole bunch of Lincolns and Mercurys all shared that name. But, you don't really remember all of those, do you? And that's because the Capri that sticks in our minds is the coupe produced by Ford Europe between 1969 and 1986. The European equivalent of the pony-car was affordable, smart, sexy, and popular even in the US. Long story short, Ford wants the same level of the success all again and plans to bring back the Capri in 2012. While the idea is not exactly new, it seems that this time it's actually going to happen. Expected to follow Ford's new design language, the little coupe will get some genes from the Iosis concept. Finishing touches like the metal-grid side vents should produce the required amounts of flashbacks for the nostalgic.
