The 1993 VW Corrado SLC is our price pick of the day to bring a trailer

For when you need a daily commuter and weekend cruiser in one.

This 1993 Volkswagen Corrado SLC has only driven 47,000 miles in its 30-year life.

When new, the spunky Volkswagen coupe produced 178 horsepower from its hard-angled 2.8-liter VR6. The seller says extensive pre-sale work has been done on the car, which will be on sale until Monday, March 6.

The Volkswagen Corrado SLC is a car that simply expresses personality. Sharp corners and an unusual back profile add to its presence.

In a 1993 test for Car and Driver, Frank Marcus asked readers to “Think about a BMW sedan. Consider the reliable Alfa GTV6. Don’t think about expensive Volkswagens growing up.”

Of course, it’s six years older than me, and by modern standards, it doesn’t win any stop-and-go races – we did 0-60 mph in 6.4 seconds when the Corrado SLC was new.

But seeing any 30-year-old car through this lens is a recipe for sadness. Get these rose-colored glasses and let the waves of nostalgia wash over you.

The naturally aspirated 2.8-liter V6 produces 178 horsepower at 5,800 rpm, roaring as you hit the road. This SLC engine has Neuspeed P-Flo spark plugs and, according to the seller, had an oil change, spark plugs, and ignition cables replaced in December 2022.

The SLC stands for “Sports Luxury Coupé” and it comes with all the bells and whistles you would expect from a car with such a famous name. Does the automatic rear wing activate when the speed limit is exceeded, see? An athlete.

Remember automatic seat belts? SLC has it. This luxury has caught on. How many doors can you count? I found the money right for the coupe. Also, with only 47,000 miles recorded, this SLC is in excellent condition.

The interior in particular has aged and grace not always found in older cars. The 15″ 5-spoke Speedline wheels are shod with new 205/50 Yokohama Advan Fleva tires.

Like most 30s, SLC has developed a few new spots in his life. Scratches are visible on the passenger side, the sunroof does not work and there is a crack in the left foam lamp.

These imperfections help tell the story of a car that was first registered in Michigan and spent time in Colorado, Arizona, Florida, and California before being purchased by Washington dealers.
