    The Official Corrado Campaign thread (where are they now)

    Do you drive one ? Do you know where one is ?? Do you know where they all are ???

    Seeing as there's hardly enough to start a "Campaign register", if you have any info on any of the six Campaigns then please post it in here.

    I've contacted VW regarding the Corrado Campaign and the only information passed my way was details of my service history. The marketing department drew a blank as well. I therefore have nothing regarding internal press info/pictures. So it looks like it's down to us enthusiasts to unearth all the info on this limited creation.

    As with most of the information I have received, none of it has been officially confirmed. So if you can confirm any info that I am posting, then please post it up. I'll update this thread as and when new information comes my way.

    These cars have become a bit of an urban myth. I hope by creating this thread, we can all learn about one of Volksagens rarest production cars.

    As some/all/none of you may know, VW created six VW Corrado Campaigns. They then held a competition for all the official dealer network of who could sell the most Karmann cars (Golf cabrio, Scirrocco, Corrado) between January 1992 and August the 1st 1992.

    The winning six dealers were:

    Scotts of Sloane square (London)
    Dovercourt, St Johns Wood (London)
    Dovercourt, Battersea (London)
    Listers of Coventry
    Karmann of Barnet (London)
    Gilders of Sheffield


    The specification (full breakdown is in the knowledgebase) :
    1992 VR6 engine.
    BBS "Monte Carlo" wheels (15").
    Early interior controls (heaters, switches, stalks)
    Pioneer front and rear speakers.
    Recaro heated and electric adjustable seats with "Corrado" embossed headrests.
    [attachment=4:2aov2xtp]Campaign headrest.jpg[/attachment:2aov2xtp]
    Full leather interior in "Brick red" with Mauve inserts consisting of: Front and rear (humped) seats with mauve stripes, Door cards (mauve part stitching), trim tunnel, Handbrake handle, gear knob, steering wheel, dashboard.

    [attachment=2:2aov2xtp]Unknown campaign 2.jpg[/attachment:2aov2xtp]
    Brick red carpeting with the same colour (front) overmats.
    Dusty Mauve (LC5P) paint. Seen mostly on the Golf MK3. Listed on the boot sticker and in the owners handbook as paintcode "SK99" (special order colour).

    From what I've read so far, mine was the only Campaign to come with Air con. It's a Diavia retro fit system that I beleive Scotts of Sloane square used to spec a lot of their cars with (Air con was not available as standard on UK cars at this point).

    Below is an article from Volkswagen Audi Car regarding the Campaign and how it came about (NB - The registration in this photo was not used on any of the Campaigns as it is a J plate).

    [attachment=0:2aov2xtp]vw audi campaign edit 1.jpg[/attachment:2aov2xtp]

    There is a rumour that one of them has been written off. Which one is yet to be confirmed but an interior does exist in another forum members car. Again another rumour that one went to Ireland has yet to be confirmed.

    Majik on this here forum has one of the interiors in his car (minus a few parts). This suggests that one has been written off. I'm yet to have this officially confirmed. More importantly, which one.

    I've emailed: VW UK again, VW Germany and Karmann to establish if they have any info on these vehicles. I'll update the thread as and when I hear anything.


    I can't comment on any of the other Campaigns as I am yet to have confirmation of whereabouts they reside and who with. But I can start the ball rolling with mine:

    The Scotts of Sloane Square car (James' Sloane ranger):
    Registration: K95 EUC
    Ownership timeline (approx):
    28/08/92 to 11/12/92 = Scotts of Fulham demonstrator
    11/12/92 to 01/07/95 = 1st owner (Newark, Nottingham)
    01/07/95 to 01/05/00 = 2nd owner (Copthorne, West Sussex)
    01/05/00 to 19/02/09 = 3rd owner (Wellington, Somerset)
    19/02/09 to 11/08/09 = 4th owner (Maidenhead, Berkshire)
    11/08/09 to Present = Me - 5th owner (West Lancashire)

    James likes Corrados. Although he wishes the feeling was reciprocated occasionally.

    Re: The Official Corrado Campaign thread (where are they now

    The interior was in Majiks car although i dont know if he sold it, im fairly sure it didnt include a dash..

    Ive seen the one owned by a lday who lives near Ipswich but that was in 07, it was wearing a private reg.

    Did your car belong to Campaign off here? If not i think that was the one that went to Ireland..

    Campaigns was the Gilders of Sheffield car. I'm lead to beleive that TCS bought it. Put their mark up on it and then it went to Ireland.

    This would tie in nicely with the above. Does anyone know if he's on here ?

    Re: The Official Corrado Campaign thread (where are they now

    Looking through Google earlier and one was sold to tcs on 10 sept 2007.
    Is this the one you think went to Ireland?
    Owner was on the retro car club with user name of sciroccorrado, located in leicestershire
    He listed it as being written off in 1999 but having been rebuilt with full AA report.
