The roadgoing RS3100 gave 148 bhp, however the race engine as fitted to Zakspeed Capris gave around 415 bhp.

Re: rs capri 3100 400bhp true or false

Actually this Essex motor was 3.4 litre and quad cam, belt driven. It's output was 440+ BHP. Only four track cars were ever built by the Cologne factory. Three survive, one in NZ, Moffats old car, Tom Walkinshaws and one in a museum at Cologne. The fourth one was written off in an accident many years ago!
