  Volkswagen Corrado - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Volkswagen Corrado was a 2-door, 4-passenger compact sports car developed by Volkswagen and built by Karmann in Osnabrück, Germany.
The Corrado debuted with two engine choices: a 1.8 L, 16-valve, 4-cylinder wth 98 kW (133 hp) (available only in Europe) and a supercharged 1.8 L, 8 valve 4-cylinder, marketed as the G60 and delivering 160 hp (118 kW), which was optional in Europe, but was the only engine option for North American buyers.
The Corrado is considered by most critics as the best handling front wheel drive car of the late 1980s and early 1990s, and was listed as one of the "25 Cars You Must Drive Before You Die" by the British magazine, Car.

The VW Corrado offers loads of excitement, and while not being the fastest car on the market, there is no doubt in anyone who has ever driven this car's mind that the Corrado is definitely unique, and offers a fun factor like no other VW of this time period; period.
The closest VW manufactured car that it comes close to in comparison is the new Golf GTI, but even then there is something special that sets the Corrado apart from the rest of the pack.
Hills are a snap for the Corrado, no need to down-shift from 5th to 4th: there is enough torque at a reasonable RPM to send this car up the steepest inclines without having to down-shift.

 VWvortex Forums: Rare VW Corrado for sale
My G60 is no Storm, so it's not a rare among the rare but none the less guys the corrado g60 is a rare car, it 90 is the first year they introduced the corrado to the states to.
The first batch of Corrados that came over were in deed mid 89 built cars, technically from the built date anything after august is considered a 90 as far as model year.
Anyway it may not be a rare Corrado but it is in fact a rare VW comperativelly speaking.

 Neowin.net -> VW Corrado views?
But when you've owned a car like the Corrado which is pretty uncommon on the roads these days, its just a bit of a shame to be back out of the club which i've been a member for so long.
ALL Corrado's are rated highly in insurance groups (Group 16 for the 16v's, 17 for G60, 18 for VR6) because they are a common target for thieves and body panels on them are exceptionally expensive..
Pretty much if you own an older VW, your a die hard VW fan and take care of your car but there are some that aren't and they trash the s**t out of them.

 DSMtuners - are vw corrado's any good(supercharged)
Corrados are sweet cars but damn slow with only an 8-valve and restricted exhaust and intake to the supercharger.
In case anyone is wondering, I still have a test on the Corrado VR6 in an old Car and Driver that has a comparo of it and the Talon TSi AWD at the end of the test.....and yes, the Corrado lost the 1/4.
If I were to step back into a VW ever, it would be an NA 8v in an A1 Rabbit, but the chances of that are slim.

As a VW owner (jetta) I am aware of their good tracks records when it comes to maintenance.
Geez I remember when a friend of mine even owned the forbearer to the Corrado, it was named the Sirocco back then and was basically a sexier Rabbit at the time with a few mods and different body work.
VW took a year after after the final production year of the Scirocco II (1988) and produced the first model year Corrado for 1990.

The kit was done in a different fashion than most, the molds were designed as inserts to a different kind of molding machine.
This was due to the fact the Corrado kit was outsourced to a different company in Europe than usual.
Revell has the mold inserts for the car(s), and the desire to do them (remember the Zender cabrio too), but hasn't figured out a viable way to produce the model...the inserts don't fit standard injection molding presses.

I owned a corrado VR6 for over 4 yrs, was a member of the CCA and an old school GTi owner before that.
There are lots of E36's to choose from, they are not nearly as rare as a Corrado, and reliability is not that bad with the Corrado.
The corrado chassis is weak, put it on jack stands and it flexes enough to make the doors difficult to open.

If you’re in the market for a Corrado and have done your homework (and you should have done your homework) you are aware of the Corrado’s problem areas:
What isn’t typical for Corrado’s (or VR6’s for that matter) is for the block to crack.
Unfortunatley this very situation happened to me. And because of it a lower mileage short block was sourced and major work was done on the engine by a highly knowledgeable and reputable local shop leaving the car with essentially a refurbished engine.

 VWvortex Forums: Rare VW Corrado for sale
burka2u, yes corrados as a make are a rare car on the open market.
For some reason when VW brought them over, they decided to sell even the 6/89 as a 90 model year, which really doesn't matter much.
So instead of saying "Rare VW Corrado", it would be more accurate to say either "Rare car" or "VW Corrado." Just admitting your errors would avoid this type of flaming.

Or it tells you to use a special VW tool which you are unlikely to have.
As for the G60, well, VW doesn't want inexperienced people messing with that because it is a highly precise item and besides some never repair it right and it ends up giving the G60 a bad name, unless you're one of the lucky few who has connections and can get it done right...research it!
Although this is a very comprehensive repair manual for the Corrado, its value is not close to the high dollar price sticker that comes with it.
