GCFSB Alumnus: 1992 Volkswagen Corrado SLC with 28,000 Miles

When originally I saw the link to this listing, I was unsurprised. Coming across a 28,000 mile pristine Corrado should be a cause for celebration among Volkswagen fans, but it has almost become expected from the seller Luxsport Motor Group, who currently has no less than three pristine and original Corrados in their inventory. That number includes currently one of the two Corrado Magnum prototypes I wrote up in May, but they’ve also had a string of amazing G60s and SLCs. Still, this early 28K SLC looked pretty familiar to me….

As I looked over this car, one thing immediately jumped out at me. The “SLC” badge was missing from what otherwise appeared to be a perfect example, and I remembered I had seen one other where that was the case. Sure enough, I wrote this car up only a few months ago in July, and the “C” was missing from the SLC badge. Since that was pretty much the only fault, this car sold $19,000 that time around. That was a pretty good amount for a Corrado, but this was a pretty special example. It would appear it immediately it’s either under consignment or into a perpetual state of being for sale. Luxsport lists the car for $29,995 on its site. A few things interest me in their presentation; they describe the car both on eBay and their site as having only 28,000 miles, while avoiding pictures of the odometer. That’s strange, because in July the car had 28,500 miles – and I can’t imagine a potential buyer would balk at the difference. Also amusing to me was the disappearing Fuba roof-mounted antenna mast in the photos. On again, off again, it’s not a concern but more funny that you’d take the time to stage these beautiful photos and miss that detail. Obviously, halfway through the shoot someone remembered it wasn’t on (likely off for a cover, I’d guess) and screwed it back in hoping no one would notice it was removed in the earlier photos. But perhaps the most annoying detail is that they removed the “SL” part and at $30,000 haven’t sourced a replacement badge. It’s not as though they spent a ton detailing or updating the car as the prior seller pretty much had it perfect for sale. Does it matter? Probably not, these are inconsequential details on what is otherwise a perfect car. But if you’re going to demand a serious premium and profit mightily from opportunism, be prepared for criticism. This car might have been well bought at $19,000, but I think it’s pretty overpriced at $11,000 more two months later.

Thank you to our reader Ricky who suggested this listing!

    $30k for a Corrado, that’s pretty close to sticker price for this car back in ’92. I’m a huge Corrado fan, but I thought it was a bit overpriced at $19k, especially for a ’92 (early interior) and in the less desirable Black/Tan color combo.
