Vintage racing history lesson: Zakspeed Ford Capri Turbo
Stepping away from the Detroit auto show for a few minutes or so, let’s take a moment to check out this video from Motorsportvideo.tv with some modern day footage of the legendary Zakspeed Ford Capri. Powered by a 1.4 litre, four cylinder that is boosted by a monstrous turbo, the flaming beast is an absolute terror.
This video begins with some detail video of the car at rest, with a very Euro Eighties soundtrack that is fitting for the car. Or bad old porn. Once the racing action appears, it becomes evident quickly how wicked the Zakspeed is even today. The onboard footage of the start is incredible.
No tow truck needed for these guys
Moving vehicles can be a dangerous business and even the most experienced tow truck drivers have been known to be injured when things go wrong. These guys in some unknown land don’t need a tow truck. All they need is a giant flatbed truck and some lumber. What you are about to see defies the laws of gravity and is not something you should attempt yourself!
