Model History

The VW Corrado was a compact three-door coupe sold from 1988 to 1995 and manufactured by Karmann in Osnabrück, Germany. Designed by Herbert Schäfer, the Corrado overlapped and eventually superseded the VW Scirocco.

The Corrado was noted for its flush mounted windows and active rear spoiler that raised automatically at speeds in excess of 62mph; all varients were front-wheel drive and powered by petrol engines. The Corrado debuted with two engine choices: a 1.8-litre 16v inline four with 136ps, and a supercharged 1.8-litre 8v inline four marketed as the G60 and delivering 160ps. The G60 model – as featured here – was named for the G Lader with which was is equipped, a scroll supercharger whose interior resembles the letter "G".

This low mileage G60 presents beautifully in gleaming Brilliant Black Metallic. Free from any swirl marks or notable defects the paintwork still looks really fresh and appears in exquisite condition throughout, the only real negatives to report being some light frontal stone chips that we have left untouched. Looking along both sides the panels are straight and true, and having clearly been garaged all its life there’s no evidence of corrosion in any of the common weak spots. The bumpers are entirely scuff-free front and rear, and the lights are all clear with no signs of any moisture ingress. A stunning unmodified example in excellent original condition. Supplying dealer number plates complete the finish.



Much like the exterior, the inside of this Corrado is absolutely first-rate with no signs of any major wear. Both front sports seats remain in fantastic sag-free condition, even the driver’s bolster which in this case hints at only very light use. There are no cracks on the dash and the switchgear is unmarked throughout; the original leather steering wheel and gear knob are also in excellent order with very few marks to report. A fully functional Blaupunkt cassette radio is fitted, and in the footwells you’ll find a near-perfect set of genuine Corrado overmats. The rear seats are also unmarked and the original first aid kit can still be found within the central armrest. Even the boot area is spotless and the parcel shelf undamaged; the factory options sticker is also still present and correct on the inside of the rear panel.


Despite the low mileage of only 63k this lovely G60 is accompanied by the most amazing service record with 27 stamps from the original supplying VW main dealer, Helston Garages Ltd. The most recent service was completed in October 2020 at 62,828 miles by reputable VW specialist, John Mitchell Racing, who also carried out a pre-emptive supercharger rebuild at the owner’s request, the invoice for this maintenance work totaling in excess of £1,300. The cambelt was last changed in 2020.

Lifting the bonnet is a real treat for the enthusiast with an exceptionally well presented and highly original engine bay. Looking closely there are no signs of any corrosion, accident damage or previous poor repair. In order to maintain the original look of the engine components the owner specifically chose not to have the supercharger cosmetically refreshed when it was rebuilt.


The Corrado sits on its original 15-inch BBS cross-spoke alloy wheels, all in perfect unmarked condition with absolutely no kerb marking or age-related defects to report, including to the centre caps and badges. The tyres all have plenty of tread remaining, and on test the brakes do a fine job of bringing the car to a stop quickly and in a straight line.
