This Absolutely Mental Ford Capri Is Australia’s Fastest Street Car: 6.95@199 MPH!

Ford guys, turn away…yes, that’s a lime-green Ford Capri, yes, it’s Australian (the gigantic blower didn’t give it away?) and yes, it’s absolutely, brutally fast. Like “power wheelie at the halfway mark” powerful. But that massive mill under the hood isn’t Ford. Nope…that’s a 2,500¬†horsepower 510 cubic inch¬†Oldsmobile powerplant! Doc Olds might be scratching his head in disbelief at the choce of car to shove it into, but owner Tristan Ockers knew exactly what he was doing when he made his choice. The Olds mill was in Australia’s fastest front-engine dragster, and when he found it for sale, well…let’s be honest, readers: if you could, you would’ve made the same choice, and for the same reason. Imagine dropping the hammer on this particular monster! As a drag car it’s very impressive, but the fact that it is legitimately licensed and registered as a street car in Australia…legally!…is another feat altogether. We’d love to know just how many cops freak the hell out when they see this thing idling through the center of town!

    What a brilliant idea!

    Yes- I know it isn’t a Ford motor, but when money talks and you can save thousands of dollars by installing a race-ready motor with proven competition history go for it. At least it isn’t a Chevy-badged motor and Oldsmobile back in the day made some seriously cool cars. So good on yer, mate!

    Capri’s can run any engine.
    Running the same Capri with a roots blown street driven Rover 215 V8.
    Oke twice as slow and with only about 12% of its horsepower as this one but same fun and noises.

    Thank you for showing this vid.
