CORRADO – 1989-96

Classics Monthly - - Marque Guide Volkswagen -

VW’s 1988-launched Corrado is def­i­nitely a clas­sic in wait­ing and was orig­i­nally con­ceived to re­place the Porsche 944, a marque VW still en­joys a strong as­so­ci­a­tion with. Al­though the VR6 ver­sion was a driver’s de­light, the Corrado was too ex­pen­sive and didn’t sell well in the UK. Launched with the 1.8 litre 136bhp 16-valve in­line-four (or 160bhp su­per­charged form in the G60 model, the Corrado’s ex­cel­lent chas­sis could easily han­dle the ex­tra power pro­vided by the 190bhp 2.8 litre VR6 that joined the line-up in 1992.
