Broadspeed Capri

I'm an insatiable, unstoppable and probably eternal Capri lover, in all shapes and forms. And they don't come a lot meaner than the thrusting, throbbing, V6-powered Broadspeed touring car. Its dry-sumped Cosworth GAA - a 3.4-litre development of the Essex V6 - had DOHC heads and fuel-injection, and offered over 460bhp. The overall race-bred aesthetic is pretty intimidating too - just look at the width of those rear slicks, and that cheeky ducktail spoiler offering two fingers to any racer foolish enough to attempt an overtake. A simply breathtaking piece of machinery.
