Ford gave the author unique access to their secret design archives and he spoke to many of Ford’s legendary leaders from the ‘70s, ‘80s and ‘90s. Former Ford chairman Bob Lutz, famous design director Patrick le Quément and Rod Mansfield - the leader of Special Vehicle Engineering - have all written forewords
It’s a dramatic tale that covers 50 years of change as cars like the Capri, Escort, Sierra and Puma, as well as their XR, ST and RS versions, were conceived, designed, developed and launched.
Over 300 pages in a large 10.35-inch by 10.35-inch, 155,000 words equal to two full-length novels supported by nearly 500 images. Over 85 per cent of the hundreds of photos have never been seen before; design sketches, prototypes and wind tunnel models.
BOOk 2: The all-new Capri 50 is the only officially-recognised book that celebrates the Capri’s anniversary. Its sister book, the award-winning The Cars You Always Promised Yourself, is the largest and most definitive work on the Capri. It features hundreds of unique and rare photos that meticulously tell the Capri story from beginning to end, as well as the cars that intended to replace it. These two exceptional books pair together perfectly to tell the Capri story through different complementary lenses without overlap. They allow the reader the choice of a celebratory, illustration-rich feast, full of never-told, first-hand stories from the legends behind the Capri. Or, a beautifully written and meticulously researched study of the car’s design, engineering and marketing. Together, these are the definitive, and largest, books ever written about the car. They are essential reading for any enthusiast during the Capri’s 50th anniversary.
