If I had a dollar for every time I’ve seen someone advertise the car they were selling as “low mileage”, I’d be a very rich…

As Paul said, “It’s back!” The awesome BBS and Callaway modded GTi is back just in time to fulfill your Christmas wishes! I know I’d certainly love to have it under my tree. Bidding reached into the $20,000 range with the reserve still on last time around, failing to sell. It’s already hit $10,000 this time with 4 days to go. What will it take to buy this incredible Mk.2?
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a turbocharged night!

Having now written up my fair share of cars on this site, I’m asked from time to time “what’s the next E30 M3?” Certainly the trend that created demand on the M3 would have been hard to predict; while it’s a desirable package for certain and has an illustrious race career, I’ve also outlined how very similar cars haven’t achieved such notoriety. The Audi Quattro and 190E 2.3-16V, for example, though noted for their importance and with strong fan followings just don’t command the premiums of the M3. The Volkswagen world has been similarly fickle; the original GTi has certainly taken off in value, with prime examples now pushing well past $10,000 in today’s market, while other models that are arguably better cars don’t command the values of the GTi. Perhaps part of that appeal lies in the few that remain in good, original condition – especially with lower miles. But if you ask me what I think the next big thing in the Volkswagen market will be, I’d have to answer that the Corrado SLC has to be up there. A popular car to modify, there aren’t many that are left with low miles in pristine original shape. Couple the dwindling good examples with what is acknowledged as one of the best driving platforms Volkswagen has made and good looks, and the Corrado is sure to be a hot item for years to come. They don’t get much hotter than this example, either – with perhaps the lowest mileage Corrado we’ve seen on the market in the past few years, this Flash Red example is stunning:

Lightning never strikes twice, it’s like deja-vu all over again, there’s a glitch in the Matrix; choose your phrase. Because if yesterday’s low mileage Corrado G60 didn’t get you excited for some two-door Volkswagen action, perhaps today’s even lower mile later SLC VR6 will. Although it’s much less common to see good examples of the earlier G60 model, the VR6 is equally if not more sought after with it’s great narrow-angle V6 soundtrack, slightly revised looks and spectacularly perfect Speedline wheels. Often seen in popular green, maroon or red, this is a nice departure again with another silver example, this time Satin Silver:

I have never owned a 928 but I have driven a few. These are fantastic touring cars, outside a BMW 850 I can’t think of…
