Crazy about Corrados? I’ve got you covered! Hot off the heels of yesterday’s Euro 16V Corrado comes the obvious counterpoint; the US-market G60. After all, why pay more for a less powerful model when the supercharged variant was available here? Well, as I mentioned in that listing, there are several details that are neat to see and desirable about the models that weren’t available here. Still, this particular Nugget Yellow G60 looks pretty awesome, has much better non-original wheels, and is off-the-bat cheaper. So let’s take a look!

This is literally the best and cleanest 1990 Volkswagen Corrado G60 you will find. It is finished in Nugget Yellow over black and red upholstery and is powered by a supercharged 1.8-liter inline-four paired with a five-speed manual transaxle. Equipment includes 15″ BBS wheels, air conditioning (recently serviced), fog lights, new KYB struts with H&R springs, New timing and supercharger belts along with replacement of the spark plugs and wires, distributor cap and rotor, new injectors, new OEM leather shift knob, new headliner installed, new window module, heater core replaced, LED headlights and a recent oil change. This is a one of a kind near perfect Corrado. Drives perfect! Stack of paperwork from everything done to the car from the day it was bought in 1990. Also has original paperwork and window sticker. no rust at all. Here are the extras! – brand new built racing engine. Built for high boost and torque. Let me stress that there is absolutely nothing wrong with the current engine. I picked this built engine up with the thoughts of putting it in if i wanted to take this car to the next level. (picture of the spec sheet attached). The engine build was over $6K alone.- extra OEM ECU – nearly impossible to find- Stage 2 tune – includes chip, belts, supercharger pulley, and injection port – these come with the car and are not installed except for the supercharger pulley (installed)you wont find a better Corrado!!
I love Nugget Yellow, and it looks great here paired with BBS wheels – though I’m not really sure the RA is the right design for the car. Still it is “period correct”, and the lowered suspension looks good. More important, though, is that this one has a huge pile of receipts for work done – the most recent of which is claimed to include building a more powerful motor. The seller is asking $14,300, which seems a bit high at first for a G60 – especially considering that this car sold a year ago for $4,000 less on Bring a Trailer, and it’s not likely to bring more money somewhere else. Still, the market has improved for modern classics like this since that time, and if the engine work is legitimate and well done, perhaps the value is really there.
I owned a ’90 G60 a long time ago, and while I loved the car, I HATED those damn seatbelts. I ended up selling the car after a year when I found a pristine Coupe Quattro. I was at the end of my patience with those automatic seatbelts, pure hell every day driving the car.
