Volkswagen has had a number of interesting ideas over the years, one of them being the Corrado. When introduced in the late 1980s, it was ahead of its time, interesting to look at and powerful
Production stopped on the 31st of 1995, by which time they had built well over 100,000. However, due to rust and spirited drivers, there aren't that many on the road in good condition.

This one recently posted for sale in eBay is a little gem. It was originally a California car, which means it saw very little humidity. What's more, there's only 39,000 on the odometer and the black leather interior is immaculate.

The owner of the 193 Corrado SLC had unfortunately tuned it, but did so in good taste. The coupe rides on Bilstein struts and sport sprints. It also has an under-hood brace and some funky red spark plug wires.

If you're European, you're probably going "what does SLC even mean?" right now. Well, in the United States, the VR6 was marketed as the Corrado SLC, which was short for sport luxury coupe.

The VR6 engine was considered to be the best possible compromise between the torque of a V-shaped engine and the practical straight layout. It had an angle of just 15% between its two banks and used a single cylinder head, making small and light. US-spec cars came with a 2.8-liter block with 12 valves rated at 180 hp.

The eBay seller has placed a $16,900 reserve on the car, which for a modern classic. But a brand new Jetta will cost you about as much and isn't half as cool. Plus, the Corrado could become a huge collectable in the next few years as fewer and fewer cars in good condition survive.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
