First thrashing its tail, and baring its teeth is the tarmac biting ford capri Perrana V8. It was a dream machine dreamed up by Basil Green of Basil Green Motors. He had made a name for himself for turning the ordinary to extraordinary, by dropping bigger power units into Fords. In 1970, Basil decided to go one leap further and drop Ford’s 5.0 Litre Windsor V8 from the Mustang into the Capri’s chassis. It also featured a Harley 460cfm carburettor with an aluminium high rise inlet manifold, a 360-degree drive element air cleaner, and a “stage” 2 camshaft and stronger valve springs, all of which delivered up to 281 hp at 5,800rpm and 406 nm. In the appropriate Peri-Peri Orange livery, it made the competitor’s eyes smart in the 1970s as it ripped the track up, reaching top speeds of 228 km/h and launching itself to 100km/h in just 6.7 seconds. The Perrana is complete with 3 matching tags. This car also comes with four original wheels, no tyres.
