Not a big Ford fan meself, although I do like some of the "modern classic" stuff... XR3s and the like...

I do have a soft spot for the Crapi though. That'd be my dads fault then. Although I only remember him having one. He had hundreds or Cortinas mind....

anyhoo, the latest to jump on the rebirth bandwagon... ladies and gentlemen, I give you the new ford Capri...

 Why do they do it ! Exclamation

  Hyundai copy !!

    the original capri was one of the most famous and best loved models in the firm’s history, and left the scene in the late Eighties. Now, the time has come to reinvent the classic.

 just looks like another "jelly mold " coup'e to me .....where's the styling reference's to the capri ,you'd think they would have at least some reference since there using the name ,if not then why not just call it a ford "scared to be radical so we'll copy" coup'e ,  not saying it's ugly or anything just dont think it warrants the capri name , look at the old fiat 500 and the new !!!          thats how to re invent a classic !

I think the best view of this car is this one, Ford are also talking about a 3.2, 6 cylinder, 4 wheel drive version bagded as an RS,

The new Scirocco got a good sl*gging on here, and in my humble opinion, I dont think it looks as good as the Capri, infact I think its fugly and I bet there is not going to be a hot Scirocco on offer, just like the last model, VAG will not want to be competing against the TT.
