VW Project

Hey guys-
I was watching Top Gear the other day on the Discovery CHannel. I dont know if you saw it but they did a skit on an older VW. I cant remember what it was, but it looked like a beast to drive, and I was wondering how and how much it will cost me to get my hands on one. If you have any ideas, help me out.
Thanks,
-Justin.

Yeah, I didn't see that episode, but if it was on top gear, it would probably be a corrado or scicoro (or however its spelled).

Corrados are badass. Can someone say supercharged?

Some Corrados were Supercharged they were known as the G60 I think.....I also seem to remember that they weren't as quick as the VR6 because VW only used the 1.8litre GTI engine in them

As for the initial question....I dont remember personally

my friend has a '90 Corrado G60.... i can definitely say "fukkenbroken" b/c that's what we all call it. it's spent more time off the road than on...

I did some reasearch on the Corrado, from what Ive read and all I am pretty interested in something like this. The obviuos problem...CASH. Are they all really going for 8-10 grand? Any other cars maybe fit this discription of the Carrodo? Thanks for the help.
