R32 Corrado - Storm Spec - 13k miles - £3750

Recommended Posts

I'm listing my Corrado R32. Priced to sell at 3750 ono - selling due to expanding family and not having a garage to keep it in.




- I bought the car in 2005 and owned for 2 years as a VR6

- Car previously owned for many years by VW employee - 40k miles done per year - but serviced 4 times a year at VW - 100s of receipts

- Sold in 2007 with a mileage of 244K to Coupehaus who did the R32 upgrade as well as body work preparation and then had a professional full respray

- Car is badged up as a storm but I've found it has aftermarket air con and original number plate was 'M' reg - so storm replica

- Green with the beige leather interior

- I bought the car back again as an R32 in 2011 - had it remapped at Emerlad where it was measured at 256 BHP @ 131 mph with 229 lb/ft torque on a rolling road

- An incredible car to drive - selling to save money on owning and running two cars - reduced price due to paint problems detailed below

- More details of the car available at http://www.corrador32.co.uk



Mods as VR6


- Lowerred 40mm

- Adjustable AVO shocks front and back

- Lexus style rear lights



R32 Conversion


- Mk5 R32 engine transplant. (engine had only covered just over 9,000 miles when transplanted)

- Emerald K3 ECU

- Aeromotive adjustable FPR

- Dubpower polished 6 branch stainless steel exhaust manifold

- Milltek 2.5” stainless steel exhaust (de-cat)

- Modified R32 throttle body to run a cable

- New VR6 clutch

- Slimline 290mm pacet fan




Good Points


- Enthusiast owned for ages

- Tons of TLC as a VR6

- Only 12.5K miles on the R32 engine

- All the mods mentioned above - sounds unique

- MOT until 27.05.15

- Toyo Proxes T1Rs all round with good tread

- Re-mapped by Dave Walker at Emerald

- Cat 1 alarm added (fitted by Trim Wizard) with certificate

- Emerald ECU supports 3 different maps and (with an extra switch and some wiring) you can switch between maps on the fly. ECU software, manual and cables with USB adapter all included




Negative Points


- Paint issue - small bumps have appeared on several panels - main reason for low price. I've included some photos of this - and a diagram of which areas area affected.

- A patch of rust-related bubbling paint in one area

- Wiring loom is more tidy than when I bought the car but wiring could do with being tidied up

- Catalytic converter has been removed so MoT requies friendly garage

- FIXED:: On cold start engine needs reving for 30 seconds before settling to a nice idle

- Rear spoiler does rise automatically but does so in installments - both when driving and via the switch

- Sunroof tilts and slides but sometimes has to be closed in installments after slide

- Lack of detailing and tidiness in and around the engine bay - needs some TLC

- Throttle body is VR6 one modified to work with a cable - works fine but would be better with a replacement throttle body

- Air con not connected up after engine transplant


I've been as honest as possible in the description. Car is located in South London in the CR4 postcode.


Thanks for looking!
