Tuner Tuesday: Supercharged 1992 Volkswagen Corrado – REVISIT

While it’s not unusual to see the same car pop up more than once on these pages, usually we see new listings when over a year has passed. Yet the customized, Laguna Seca Blue supercharged 1992 Volkswagen Corrado SLC from last year is back with nearly the same listing and only a slight drop in price just over one year later with no claimed miles accrued. We also get effectively no updated photos and no interior shots. While it’s not to everyone’s taste, is $9,800 still too much for the amount of work that went in to this coupe?

The below post originally appeared on our site March 4, 2014:

Last night, I posted a clean Corrado VR6 with some questionable wheels on our Facebook Fanpage. These Corrados, perhaps even more than their GTi cousins, seem to draw out the watercooled tuning crowd and go through many different mutations. Also like their cousins, it’s pretty rare to see them in stock condition, especially good stock condition. Well, today proves that point, so to speak; this Corrado is definitely not stock, but it certainly looks pretty interesting, so I thought it was worth a look. Plus, it’s been supercharged – a different sort of forcing induction than the VR6-swapped Turbo GTis from the other day. Painted fetching BMW Laguna Seca Blue, this Corrado looks ready for the show circuit:

Sometimes I love reading these builds and seeing where some of the pieces came from. It’s a bit of an art form in and of itself, finding bits from other cars that you like and integrating them. In this case, the Subaru intake on the hood is pretty well incorporated and it’s hard to identify it outside of this application. The body kit is mostly Oettinger and Zender, and the coilover suspension supports in my mind one or two inch too big Moda wheels, but for a show they look great. Euro lights complete the look, although I’d like to see inside and check out the Autopower rollcage that is installed. The motivation comes from a reputable Vortec supercharger and exits through always great sounding Borla exhaust. All in all, well executed in my mind. The price for this work is pretty high but not relative to the prices clean VR6 Corrados usually trade at; of course, you’d have to want the modifications present but it’s a cheaper way of getting it done than attempting yourself if you like the look.
