Ford Capri to heat up cook show

2012-12-10 08:20

ONE CAR, TWO FRIENDS: They say too many cooks spoil the broth, but two friends and one Ford Capri could be the perfect combination.

BRENTWOOD, Essex – The last Ford Capri ever produced will feature in Jamie Oliver’s latest TV project – Food Fight Club. He's joined forces with old friend Jimmy Doherty to take British food to the Continent in an entertaining way.

The Ford “Brooklands” Capri was chosen by Jamie since he and Jimmy have been friends since the 1980's and, despite having a Ford Fiesta, the Capri was the car to which the they both aspired when they were growing up together in Essex, southern England.

LIMITED PRODUCTION

Developed by the then Ford Special Vehicle Engineering division at the Dunton Technical Centre in Essex, the Capri 280 was limited to a production run of just more than 1000. It has a five-speed manual transmission and a 2792cc V6 overhead-valve engine capable of propelling the coupé to a top speed of 204km/h.

The show, partly filmed in front of an audience in a café on Southend Pier, Essex, is intended to bring the country together in a love of British food. Jamie has high ambitions for Food Fight Club:

"It's set up to be the most exciting, interesting and funny cooking show yet shown on TV."
