SOTW: VW CORRADO
The VW Corrado, amazing handling from a front-wheel drive
The Corrado was a three-door hatchback coupe, built between 1988 and 1995. A successor to the Scirocco, it featured a rear spoiler that rose automatically at around 50mph. All Corrado models were front-wheel drive, and this version comes with a 1.8 litre naturally-aspirated 16 valve engine. A little down on power: it only produces 136bhp, it compensates with engaging handling. ‘Car’ magazine listed it as one of the ’25 cars to drive before you die’. A very balanced car, the Corrado has plenty of grip and traction and responsive steering, giving you plenty of driving enjoyment for your money.
Another benefit of this car is the interior. For a coupe, it’s quite spacious, with a deep boot and ample room for your rear passengers. The adjustable steering column means you can find a good driving position as well.
The advert reads: 'VW Corrado 1.8 16v. Nice car but need quick sale to pay the bills no stupid offers as this car is nice! 280mm audi TT brakes, Audi TT Wheels and a few other mods.
Bad points- No Tax No Mot but only needs about £100 to pass MOT.'
