1993 Volkswagen Corrado SLC with 55,000 original miles

The late ’80s and early ’90s produced some of the greatest hot hatchbacks of our time. Cars like the Honda CR-X, Acura Integra and Mazda MX-3 are lameted these days, due to the increase in size and weight of all vehicle segments. Taking the place of the Scirocco, the Volkswagen Corrado was a welcomed German addition to this once sizable segment. Unfortunately, many of these great machines have been torn up and modified over the years, or just plain neglected. Here we have a nice example of the later VR6 engined Corrado.

The seller states:

1993 VW Corrado SLC VR6, 5 speed, silver w black leather, only 55,979 original miles! Bilstein struts, new pads and drilled rotors, cold air intake, Neuspeed exhaust… otherwise, stock from the factory! Slight clear coat peeling on right side in a couple smaller areas.

As of writing this, there are no takers at the $7,500 starting bid. Others in similar condition that I’ve seen in the past year have been going in the $5,000 to $6,000 range, so this asking bid may be a bit optimistic in enthusiasts eyes. The only thing that would detract a buyer in my mind would be the non-standard exhaust pipe (looks a bit ridiculous sticking out that far) and the added audio equipment. Other than that, this is a chance to own an unmolested example of Wolfsburg’s (well, Karmann’s) finest.

  1. Might be a good car. The leather looks a little worn more than it should for 55,000 miles. If I bought a US spec car, the first thing to go would be the mouse motor seat belts. I would also install the Canadian /Euro under dash shelves and get rid of the anti submairne plastic. It makes the car like a swiss army knife in terms of functionality. Being from New York is the big question mark. If it had a good owner, it might be no problem, but might be a bit rusty underneath and underhood. Corrados are extremely corrosion resistant though, so it might be fine. They are great driving cars. If you want one, buy a good one, as the parts are getting hard to find and pricey through VW.
