    quick video of boosting and revving up..... quality not too good but you can see how quick it hits speed if you ignore the sound. taken on a phone......

    Really wanted one for most of the 90's, when I had a 323 GTi 3-door.

    Chap I used to know at the gym in Bicester had a 1995 Mauve VR6 with an LPG conversion. Bet there weren't many of them around...

    Most of them now are sadly chavved up with silly bodykits and daft lowering kits. Interior really looks dated as well now.

    Cheers,
    Alistair

    I had a j reg g60 for 5 years and loved it. Changed the rims to 17" borbet c,s. The corrado was a car way ahead of its time imo.

    Borbet C`s looked excellent on the Corrado, also well on the MK 2 Golf.

    Very cool - but I'm probably a bit biased.

    Check out Hammond's review of the Rado on Youtube!

    I LOVED my VR6 and was sad to see it go but had the opportunity to get a TVR Chimaera so it was a worthy sacrafice:



    S3 seems like a suitable long term replacement though...

    the corrado is definately a very cool car, here's my old one, sold it last week and took an A4 1.8t in part-ex:



    it was a 1990 with a 2.0 ABF 16v engine and polished porsche 928 wheels, lowered 60mm all round, so quick and nice to drive, handled like the best of them!
