Volkswagen Corrado VR6 - Looking dated but still the daddy of the V6 pack, where did Audi, Alfa et al get inspired for there 3.2 v6's? the Corrado!! Sounds great, goes well, admittedly is a tad heavy on fuel unless you drive it softly, but you can't!! LUUURVE the sound of the engine, and if you buy a car like this you dont care about the fuel, you wont be a lentil eating sandal wearer who thinks of environmental issues anyway, just buy one, you'l' love it!

Ive had my Volkswagen Corrado VR6 for 2 years now, ive always been a lover of this great looking car since the day I saw a sweet VR6 storm punch it up my road, I turned round and thought ive never heard anything sound so sweet and I had to get one.
I had a Renualt 19 16v with Hill power stage before, and I thought that was pokey, but it seems pretty slow now, the Corrado is something else the power delivery is so smooth all the way through.

In 1995 I debated whether to get a Corrado for too long. All Storms sold out very quickly but I managed to buy a new 'standard' VR6 in March 1996. Never regretted it - but it hasn't been cheap to maintain now that car has covered 140,000 miles. Engine still pulls really well - Mobil 1 oil always used from new. A great all-round drive despite front-end being a bit heavy. Kept car standard as this will be desirable IF one day it gets sold. That will be a sad day indeed. Well worth sticking to... (read more)

Fast, sporty, a dream drive. Certainly not for the faint hearted. Reliable and ever driveable.
I have had my wee beastie for a couple of months now and love her to bits...
So much fun and a fantastic drive, hate driving other cars as I miss the power and fun of my Corrado. (read more)

The Corrado is definitely a classic car to own, to buy a decent one that has not been thrashed or seriously messed around with is somewhat hard to do.
If you own a decent one and can afford to keep it then I think within in time they will be come a major classic.
They say that the Corrado are few and far between, I find this hard to believe, okay so they are not roaming around in droves but hey, on no less then four occasions in one day I had flashing lights and waves from other Corrado... (read more)

The Volkswagen Corrado is a low down sporty car with great looks and nice bucket style seats with pretty good handling. Mine was a 1.8 16v and had seen a hard life. It had over-heating problem, head gasket problem, brake problems you name it I had the problem. I'm not saying they are all like mine was but be careful who has been driving it before. (read more)

This is my second Volkswagen Corrado VR6. I started off with an 85 Scirocco. Absolutely loved the car. Drove it till I blew a rod. My mechanic had a 1990 Corrado G60 for sale. Test drove it and thought "Wow! this car feels even better than the Scirocco. "Took care of that car and was planning to keep it for a while. I had just replaced the heater-core ($1,700.00) when my mechanic called and told me he had a near mint 1993 VR 6 with 122,000 mi. on it.
Again, I test drove the 1993, and... (read more)

This Volkswagen Corrado VR6 is my fisrt car. I was actually regretting getting the Corrado I got because of the previouse owners horrible relationship with the car. Duct tape, and electrical tape are all over, and connections are loose, and not pluged. However, when I drive it all the problems are so far away that I am more than thrilled I bought this car. She's more to me than that. She is my sancutary and my confidant. I love the way she sounds, and handles. I love it when all the other... (read more)

Just bought a Volkswagen Corrado VR6 and drove my first 50 miles which has definitley confirmed that I am happy with the car. I have wanted this car since I was a teenager because of it's looks alone and was not disappointed with the performance. This car is deceptive in that it is faster than it feels which is a sure good sign.
Having owned a lightly modified 205 1.9 for 3 years I'm sure the handling is better (as well as the performance but I suppose that is obvious) I have also driven... (read more)

The Volkswagen Corrado VR6 is an amazing sports car! It's my first car, and I've only had it for 4 months, but so far I'm so excited about it. I can't wait to modify it (she's mostly stock) I've had to replace the heater core :( and the CV boots. Other than that though, I am impressed! Why doesn't VW make another one like it??? I love the speed-activated spoiler and the looks I'm going to get (I haven't driven it all that much). The quality of it is excellent and way ahead of its... (read more)

I purchased my Volkswagen Corrado VR6 storm november 2003,
The moment I drove it before I exchanged the money, I was in love.
I love to drive it but I dont want the miles to go up!
It has just done 100k!!!!
i have had to change the radiator and passenger window and window motor. These are the only things that have had to do (and tyres).
I would recommend a corrado vr6 to anybody!!!!!
Classic, cool, collectable! (read more)

I bought my first Volkswagen Corrado VR6 Sports Car in 2001 and it has been the best car I have ever owned due to the comfort levels and performance. It brings a smile to my face every time I see it. It's also one of those cars you can't help but look back at once you've parked it up. It's suprisingly economical and I average around 30mpg. I had to move to the USA last year due to my job changing and I hunted around for about a month looking at other cars eventually deciding on a Toyota... (read more)

Though speed isn't everything, there aren't many cars that will out perform the Volkswagen Corrado VR6.
I feel the Corrado VR6 is already a classic!
It's lines and shape, give it an awesome presence on the road, and if left unattended attracts an enormous amount of attention. If often have to educate the unknowing that the Corrado is not a reshaped Golf, and Karmman and not VW built it" (read more)

I bought my VW Corrado VR6 in December 2003 just after Top Gear featured it. I had been on the hunt for one for about 4 months previous to this and was panicking about the prices going through the roof! Full VAG service history, 41K on the clock and one previous owner. The R.A.C. did a full check and found.... a split in the rear wiper blade! The deal was done and another VW added to the stable. Poor old Scirocco.
It was a pig to get insured as no paperwork was supplied for the immobiliser.... (read more)

I own a 60k mile 94 VW Corrado VR6 with a/con and leather.I,ve had a Golf VR6 and a Clio Williams but this far out performs both. A few snags with the smell of petrol coming into the cabin and a fuel leak all over my drive. Fairly practical for myself, wife and two kids considering its a coupe.Interior build quality not up to MK2 Golf standard and the zip went on the arm rest. Door handles are weak and cracked fogs a regular occurance.

I picked up an red ex-lease VW Corrado VR6 at 3 years in 1999 - one of the last off the line. Now coming up for eight years old, I have no intention of changing it - I just don't see any point and nothing newer holds the same appeal - its relaible, has beautiful styling in and out, and an engine and handling for all occasions. In a country lane mood and no passengers the car is just incredible, you never seem to run out of pull and grip and the V6 sounds beautiful when opened up. Great ride... (read more)

I can't say enough good things about this car. First, it GOES. In dense traffic this car is perfect for zipping in and out of freeway pockets. Amazing handling. Plus, here in Los Angeles I see them about as often as I see Ferrari 360 Modenas ... in a city saturated with Hondas and Acuras, it's nice to pull up to a stop light and not see a car just like yours across the intersection. Every other sport compact that I find myself next to on the freeway wants to race me, and I smoke 'em... (read more)

I bought my 1993 Corrado VR6 with only 44,000 miles on the clock. It is in virtually new condition. It is a true drivers car, has bags of power and handles really well. I bought a Corrado VR6 for its performance and low depreciation. 1993/94 cars with low mileage are still fetching anywhere between £6-10k. Compare this with the value of a comparable FTO !!!

I was lucky enough to find a good priced VR6 Storm from a VW dealer. I had a 205 1.9 before and was worried that this would not be as much fun, just a little more grown up. How wrong was I. I love this car and intend keeping it for as long as possible, even to the extent of buying a cheap runaround and keeping it for weekends. Both the performance and handling are excellent, although make sure that you get a decent set of tyres on it. The build quality is superb and the looks that you get... (read more)

The VW Corrado VR6 is a justifiable cult car and the best handling VW ever--including any newer A4. The answer to a question no one asked, namely: What do you get when you cross a GTI with a Jaguar E-type? The purring, roaring, cruising, handling Corrado SLC.
The Corrado is a spiritual heir to other German 4-seaters such as the 928 and MB 450 SLC with which it shares it's name. Out on the highway it's a long legged, swift, and comfortable cruiser, and around town it can carry four adults... (read more)

Bought my 1994 VW Corrado VR6 in May 2001 with only 63K miles and I am still loving every minute driving it. I previously owned a 1993 Audi Coupe 2.0E 8v, but got tired of the performance, and being a VW/Audi fan this was the natural step up. Performance is simply amazing, there is loads of torque in every gear and the engine sounds absolutely fantastic right up to the red line. Handling is exceptional, and I think you have to get the car onto a track to really appreciate what it can do. On... (read more)

The VW Corrado VR6 is the best front wheel drive sports coupe on the market ever!
Name another to beat it and I'll prove you wrong!
This car is effortless around town, on the motorway and will eat the ground up as quick as most £50K upwards sports and supercars!
Reliability and quality is the best around and the engine is good for 100k miles upwards (if serviced regularly!).
This car hardly depreciates in value and just looks damn cool! (read more)
