Selling a unicorn

Thats right, its true...I'm selling my prized Corrado. I never thought I would do this, but my wife and I just bought a new home and we need the cash for renovations. How cliche, right?!

Update! The car has been sold and is going to the East Coast to an awesome guy who has been chasing this car for years. I will do an update video soon disclosing all the details. Cheers!!

VW Corrado's are great cars and are very fun to drive! High quality materials used throughout, built by Karmann Coachworks in Germany where VW's most special cars were mostly hand built. This car weighs around 2700 lbs and has about 220HP/TQ. The 5 speed manual is close ratio, with a light clutch that's easy/fun to use. Very flat handling, excellent steering feel/weight. The Wavetrac LSD provides a huge amount of grip, especially with putting the power down out of the corners.

To me, this is the nicest Corrado in the country. The color is absolutely amazing, and it drives perfectly. The car has been modified, but no expense has been spared on upgrades and maintenance. The Wavetrac LSD, Schrick 268 cams and KW V3 coilovers have completely transformed this car. Its a blast to drive and sounds amazing! Everything works: sunroof, spoiler, cruise control, AC, etc.

The color is Brombeer metallic, and it is now my favorite car color of all time! My next project car will likely be painted this color, its so unique and beautiful. It has a lot of character and changes with the light. Doesn't look sooo purple all the time, but really pops under certain light. I love it! The paint was just 3 stage polished/sealed and looks wet. All the pictures below have not been touched up at all. What you see is what you get.

It's not perfect, and I believe in full disclosure. Here are the flaws: 2 inch scratch on rear bumper Small popcorn kernel size dent on roof Usual rock chips on front bumper/hood Car was repainted in 95 due to hail damage while it was still on the dealer lot. It was done extremely well, and looks original.

Interior and Engine are flawless
