Question Visos = New Capri?

From the Frankfurt Motor Show.... Visos Concept

Is this going to be the new Capri?

That car does look very fresh, the front does reminds me of the capri's. It could possibly be it. Whats other peoples thoughts?

It looks too much like a Station Wagon to be a Capri (very UnSporting). The only thing that reminds me of a Capri about it is the Vents in the Rear Guards.

Re: Visos = New Capri?

Looks to me like someone at ford's design department have been looking at one of their little subsidiaries called Mazda lately. It looks like a 2 door Rx8 with ford tweaks to the front and rear - Telstar/Laser style.

Okay the rear is Ford's own do-ing but my initial impression is still of an Rx8 clone.

Re: Visos = New Capri?

It seems a fair bit like the Chrysler Crossfire to me....I like the rear of it, but the front lacks something....like a grill!

Would you like to change your name to Homer Junior? People can call you Hoju.

Re: Visos = New Capri?

I actually think it's one of the better looking concept cars in a long time. Hope it makes it into production as anything. Mondeo Coupe? :s6:

Re: Visos = New Capri?

I could see a TX5 badge being put on that quicker than Capri

Nice looking Concept, though I dont think it beats the Mustang!
