Turbo Capri (Zakspeed)
One can probably argue about whether the car in the picture above still has any technical similarity to the series car. If you only look at the broad body with expansive wings. But these differences between series and racing version, will be probably with other manufacturers, too. In the case of components, such as for example the rear axle, the Capri then is an exception. Thus, by the leaf-spring rigid axle is little left in the race car above with a relatively high technical effort. Here is technology installed the series version can only dream of. There are even rally versions with four-wheel drive. Such brilliance is in part urgently needed, but disturbs sometimes the lack of technical brightness a little Capri's image.
At the success of the race events is nothing to quibble about. Here is mentioned - in addition to numerous other successes - only the German Racing Sport (Stuck, Fritzinger) and the European Touring Car Championship (Mass) in one year (1972).
