1995 Volkswagen Corrado VR6

Cool as a cucumber late-model VR6 manual in desirable dark blue; just 108,000 miles; 23 old MOTs and considerable history

Supplied new by Enterprise Garage VW dealers of Bridgnorth in August 1995, this late model (final year of production) VW Corrado VR6 is finished in dark Blue and rides on its original 15” five-spoke Speedline alloy wheels and absolutely looks the part – neat, muscular and purposeful.

Inside, we find black figure-hugging cloth sports seats, on-board computer, front fog lamps, heated rear screen, buttons for manual control of the automatic rear wing, electric windows, electric mirrors, original VW radio/Cassette and electric sunroof.

Its fitted with the potent 12-valve 2.9-litre VR6 engine which produces just shy of 190bhp driving the front wheels via five speed manual transmission. We also note fitment of an aftermarket air filter which helps release an addictive induction roar under acceleration (they sound superb!).

Showing just 108,897 miles, the car comes to us from a local VW enthusiast collector and organiser of various VW meets and presents very well with only the head-lining drooping in the corners – a common issue and ABS light going on and off intermittently which it’s done throughout our vendor’s tenure and temperamental sunroof operation, again a common Corrado thing.

The history file of this attractive angular coupe includes the V5C recording just two previous owners, the owner’s pack & service book revealing seven stamps all by VW main dealers plus two hand-written entries for service in 2003 at 72,817 miles and 2010 at 87,700 miles. In addition we find a considerable selection of bills for routine service and parts including a service kit in May 2020 and new battery in April 2021 plus a useful 23 old MOTs to back the mileage up. A note pad is also on file detailing expenditure between 2010 and 2019.

The current MOT is valid until November 2022 recording no advisories, which bodes well for a 27-year-old car.  The MOT history reveals the car to have seen limited use recording just c.4,500 miles use in the last five years.  An added bonus, the plate L6 ABV comes with the car, ABV being the engine code of the VR6 variant which is sure to get those of a geeky disposition excited.

A proper car and a proper Modern Classic – its no surprise values have risen sharply as the market wakes up to what a cracking and well-built pocket rocket these VR6’s are.

Documents: V5C; owner's pack & service book with 7 stamps + 2 hand written entries; file of invoices; 23 old MOTs; MOT November 2022 with no advisories
