Description

European counterpart of the successful Mustang, the Ford Capri was already selling well and dominated the racetracks with the 2600RS variant . Benefiting from a change in regulations, the blue oval brand developed an even powerful and optimized weapon for the track : The mighty Ford Capri 3100 RS !

Based on the same car but with a V6 pushed to 3.4 liters and tuned by Cosworth, this beast was made to be a worthy competitor to the BMW 3.0 CSL in the European championship.

This particular model, built by Ric Wood and perfected by Raceworks, was Ric Wood personal car before being acquired by Gerard Lopez with an already impressive race record. Bought by Gipimotor, this car was further fine tuned and went on winning two third of the races it entered in 2020. Winning the HTC title the same year with Christophe Van Riet the car is showed how impressive the performances could be. 

Fully refreshed and upgraded at the end of the 2020 season, the car will be delivered with zero hours on the engine, the gearbox, the rear axle and all mechanical components

Race ready with HTP valid until the end of 2026, this car will be even more dominant than it was in 2020 !

The car can be seen at Gipimotor’s HQ (Evere - Belgium) on appointment only.
