Vw Corrado G60

My Supercharged Karmann Vdub

If you came here from CorradoG60.com, I'm sorry but that site has now been closed down due to lack of use. Thanks, Neil.

A site dedicated to my 1992 Volkswagen Corrado G60.
You can see mods & spec for the air ride suspension, engine, exterior and interior along with pictures and Guides.

Also check out How many Corrado G60 are left in the UK and the options decoder to decode your factory Vw boot stickers. You can also join me for some Vw Chat.

I bought my G60 24th January 2005. It's Gloss Black, colour code L041, first registered in the UK 10th April 1992 and manufactured 23rd March 1992.

I'm leaving out many details & pictures of modifications that either never came to fruition, or are still under development. For example, nitrous oxide was part fitted at one stage but never completed, I'm also leaving off details of many service intervals such as 3x heater matrix replacements and 3x Waterpump replacements!

I've now owned this Corrado G60 for: 12 years, 8 months, 22 days, 11 hours and 45 minutes. It's been a real love/hate relationship with this car as I'm sure many Corrado owners can appreciate! There's an old meme from around the net that says:
Want to hear a good Corrado joke? Hold on, I'm working on it.

More a matter of fact than a joke for most owners maybe! But anyway, these old retro Karmann built Volkswagens seem to draw us in somehow. And we bow to their every need to keep them going, whatever the reason may be.

Why G60 over VR6 or 16 Valve?

Well I've always been a fan of, and more used to highly stressed cars in general. That's because I'm actually a normally aspirated Man at heart. Think high revving, steel internals.

I personally find the VR6 to be a little lazy in it's 'response' although obviously it pulls well and can make good power (Expensively) but I ruled it out. Then there's the 16 valve, well I'd already had a few over the years running twin webers etc and I just wanted something with more power from the start. So the Supercharged G60 was the one for me. The G60 definitely falls into the more 'Highly stressed' category of Vw!
