The Corrado is a 2 door Sports Coupe built by VW between
1988 and 1995 (Available in the US from '90 to '94 and in Canada from '90 to '95). VW offered two
engines for the Corrado in the North American market: 1) a 1.8L, 158hp, 4 Cyl. Supercharged 8V
engine offered from 1990 to 1992 (Called the G60) and 2) a 2.8L, 178hp, 6 Cyl. V (Called the VR6.
US versions were called SLC models). The Corrado is based on the A2 chassis and it is the fastest
VW built to date.
The European market was lucky to get the 2.9l 190hp VR6. Other European engine options were a 2.0l
8v 115hp 4cyl and a 2.0l 16v 136hp 4cyl (there were some early 16V's with catalytic converters from
1990/1991 that had 129Bhp).
There is an interesting article that you can look at regarding the Corrado when it was previewed
before its production and an ad that gives a lot of interesting details on the corrados.
