1973 Ford Capri RS 2600, documented Euro spec RS

Collector Alert!

Very rare original Ford Capri RS 2600.

The RS2600 Capri model is a homologation “special” manufactured by Ford of Europe to classify special competition parts for FIA racing.

The 1972 RS2600 Capri won every championship in its FIA division, including the 24 Hours of LeMans, European Touring Car, German Touring Car, and the Tour de France.

Prominent drivers like Niki Lauda, Jochen Maas and Dieter Glemser were among the pilots of the RS Capris and driving these legendary cars to many victories.

These “Germany Cologne built” street RS models were never sold in the United States and came from the factory with a high compression, mechanically fuel injected 2.6l V6 motor. Our car is one of perhaps a handful in the United States and likely the only LeMans green/white example with a period correct wide body in the world. 3522 examples of the street legal RS were built, less than 100 are believed to have survived. This is one of the rarest road going, high performance street cars out of Germany from the early 70’s. At the time also dubbed “The Porsche killer.”

Highly original and nicely maintained and mechanically sorted with complete 4 owner history from new. Owner documentation back to day one, never raced or abused. The car was taken off the road with a non op registration in 1991 and just stored. All wide body parts were added in the 70’s from Fords official RS Motorsport Program and approved and documented by German Tuv. A fascinating vehicle and a true European racing legend. Registered and licensed in California since 2019.

The car runs and drives fantastic and is presented in selected shows and Cars and Coffee events in Northern California. Pay attention, you will never see another one!
It comes with the original German registration papers including original title and should be eligible for most historic tours and events.

Very rare opportunity to find a real European RS here in the United States.
