Here you can see how many Volkswagen Corrado G60 left in the UK are taxed on the road, or SORNED and off the road. SORN (Statutory Off Road Notification) fully came into use in year end 2007 as a way of recording and declaring that a car was not being used on UK roads.
You can ask a question or leave a comment.
The number of Corrado G60 left in the UK probably seems alarming at first, but when you consider that they were quite a rare car to begin with, then the fact that there aren't many left seems reasonable.
The Corrado was manufactured at Karmann coachworks in Osnabruck Germany from August 28th 1988 until early 1993. It was designed by Herbert Schafer who gave it a slight redesign in 1992 to accommodate the VR6 running gear.
In total only 10,155 Corrado's (All engine models) were sold in the UK, of which only 1,984 were supercharged G60 models. The G60 is now the second rarest model engine wise, with the most rare being the 8 valve which was manufactured in much lesser numbers than the G60.
Although truth be told there are a few much more rare Corrado models including the 16 valve G60, an engine used by Vw Motorsport and then placed into only two or three Corrados. At least one of which is known to be factory four wheel drive. And at least one of which wears a very love/hate factory bodykit.
Other rare models include the 'JET', a car only sold in the German market as a run out G60 model. The Corrado Magnum, an estate version of which only three were manufactured before the plug was pulled by Vw. And a cabriolet version, it's believed only two of these were ever made and one resides at Vw Germany.
Information does not include Northern Ireland until 2014 Q4. Statistics will be inaccurate in places due to changeovers of Tax/Sorn, Unlicensed illegal vehicles and general discrepancies.

This data is current as of 2018 Q3 and will be updated quarterly.
We have to assume that one of the Corrado G60 in the oddity category, must be F546DNV which was tested on Top Gear by Tiff Needell in 1988. I'd love to know where this early G60 resides. Please get in touch if you have information!
