He invented and built small vehicles that consumed very little fuel. Before that, he invented an individual jet device, which allows a person to fly by jet. His inventions have never been patented, nor has he applied for patents.
Without support from the Romanian government or private companies, he built his tiny vehicles mostly on his own. Capra's most famous car was the Soleta 150 Ecor; it had a total weight of 95 kg and was capable of covering 100 km on 0.5 liters of fuel. He also produced another model, the Soleta I.C.200, which could reach 67 km/h. None of his cars have been produced commercially.
Capra means "goat" in Romanian; this root word contributes to the words 'capricious' and 'Capricorn' in English usage.
