Yep I have one right now, have had it 8 years, only going up for sale as I am getting an S3 as a company car.....
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.

Practical Alternative (Still fun though!!):

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.
08 s5/ brillant red /black leather/
ALWAYS wanted one of these, but could not justify the insurance on them...mate had one that i used to end up driving quite a bit, absoloutly loved it!!!
I think i would still get one, if i had the space, money, time etc etc etc!!
Shame the new Scirocco isnt a Coupe like the C was, but thats another topic
Very cool - but I'm probably a bit biased.
Check out Hammond's review of the Rado on Youtube!
The three sixes - urS6 Avant, Corrado VR6 & Passat V6 TDi
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!
Another vote for Sub-Zero, though I too am slightly biased!!
Just needs the suspension/ride height sorted and thats it.
Maybe will have another some day as a toy/hobby/keepsake.
Or even my daughters first car (in 10 years time that is....)
