Tuner Tuesday: Supercharged 1992 Volkswagen Corrado VR6

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.

  1. If only I still lived in the states this would make an awesome toy. Great build!

  2. Wow. Return the appearance back to stock and then I *might* be interested.

    Nobody knows how to “fix” what isn’t broken like VW guys.

  3. Blimey. I bet the Torque steer on this will break your wrists.
