Towards the end of last year there was a great deal of excitement in the UK because of a concept drawing of what a new Ford Capri could look like. Things went a little quiet over the coming months, although around a week ago, the image reappeared on Facebook and started the rumors off once again.
Many people on Facebook were confused and actually thought Ford had finally announced the launch of the new Capri, but this was not the case. It was more the fact that a few fans thought they would get the concept image to go viral once again, as they seem eager for Ford to get the model out of mothballs.
It’s a real shame because people did start to believe that Ford were up to something, and so could even see some sort of announcement for the all-new Capri during the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, but this is very unlikely. We do know for certain that there will be the evolutionary Audi A4 at the car show, but not the Capri we are afraid.
This is a real shame because the concept design that we have seen is very nice indeed, with its mix of Mondeo, and also a bit of Tesla Model S – although that might just be my eyes playing tricks on me.
I’m reminded of the saying, absence makes the heart grow fonder, and this does seem to be the case here. There are many cars that are loved throughout the world, and the Ford Capri is one of those models in the UK. Even Jamie Oliver has shared his love for the Capri, which is why he drives one in his Food Fight TV Show.
