1993 Corrado VR6 Dragon Green

Recommended Posts



Hi All,


I bought this car over 3 years ago now. The chap I bought it from was initially looking for advice on how to repair the car as the headgasket had gone. Headgasket aside, the car needed a huge amount of work just to get it roadworthy, let alone the cosmetic side of things. Having offered the chap a sum of money (bear in mind he didn't want to sell it initially) , I had the car collected from a small hotel in Snowdonia, lumped it onto a transporter and we headed home.


It took me 2 and a half years to get it to where I wanted. Having thought long and hard about it I have decided to sell, not because I have to but more because I feel i'm doing a dis-service to the car as it's not used. I've driven less than 1000 miles since i have it, at present it lives in my garage under a lovely soft cloth.


It's time to sell,


I've spent a huge amount of time and money on the Corrado since i've had it, I do not expect to regain what i've spent as that would simply be unattainable, however I expect a decent amount given how mechanically and aesthetically sound the car is. Below is a large and probably not full list of things I have done/replaced/repaired since owning the car.


One of the greatest achievements was getting the car refinished, I used a company called "RPM Automotive Refinishers", Ross, the owner, was a fantastic help, always sending me photos/videos, always asked if there was any work that he thinks needed doing on top of what we already agreed. The reason I chose Ross over anyone else was A) his knowledge B) his portfolio of work is exceptional, has worked on many classic cars from E-Types, to Bentleys & VW Campers. I paid just under £7000 for the paint including some welding work etc. The finished is exceptional, i've been back a handful of times to have some other work carried out on the corrado.

Around £16,000 spent on this car over the past 3 years i've owned it (like i said i am not looking to recoup that amount, it's important that I tell you this information so you can understand the work that has gone into it) . Don't let the 190k miles put you off this car is spotless and mechanically sound.


I've probably forgotten a huge amount to be honest, if you have any questions please fire away.


Looking for £6500 which I think is a good price

Did you have a look at the Flickr album?


My car is located in Birmingham and I live in Manchester. Where will you be travelling from, do you have any available dates and I will try and match with one of those?
