I have owned a black
1993 Corrado VR6 with black Recaro leather from day one from dealer and now at 20 years old and 260 000km it still puts a smile on my face.Reliability is excellent and only changed normal wear and tear parts and some sunroof and coolant problems but what car have you owned that has not needed repairs and i was happy to fix a good car. Now i don't use it as my every day car and my wife tells me to sell it but i don't want to let her go.This car was something special when built you can't get that feeling unless today you spend big money.Best VW ever built and the sound of that VR6.

Awesome car that performs and handles just as good if not better then a lot of newer vehicles today. Love this car because its rare don't see to many driving around, fun to drive, sounds great and is very good looking even now. Can easily purchase a corrado for under $5000. If you have considered buying a corrado I warn that they can be expensive to maintain, but well worth it since there was under 100,000 produced world wide. Future collector car? Will enjoy this car for years to come .

Corrados these days are a cult followed car. They are known as one of the best VWs ever built. However, its base price in the early 90s was a lot and you could have gotten a base entry Porsche for it. They are often called the Poor Man's Porsche and the name sticks. With very nice handling and 0-60 speed in the 5 second area, it makes the Corrado a car of this era. The great things include the speed sensitive rear spoiler. However, being a 17 year old car at the most, expect to pay quite a bit for upkeep on one of these rare sport coupes that was never given a chance. Also, in good running condition expect to pay ~ $5,000-$9,000 plus a few maintenance bills.
In mid-1992, supercharged four-cylinder engine was replaced by 2.8-liter V6. V6 model designated SLC. ABS and traction control are standard. BBS wheels dumped in favor of five-spoke VW design. Fuel capacity up four gallons, and front styling is tweaked. A/C is CFC-free. Radio turns off with ignition switch.
