Car exterior paintwork is extremely good, apart from a small mark on one alloy wheel.
The original interior is damage free and very nice.
'VR' stands for V-Reihenmotor, which translates to V-Inline, the unit is a very narrow-angle V6, displacing 2861cc, with two offset banks of cylinders at 15 degrees to one another. Unlike a conventional V6, but exactly like an inline six, there's just one-cylinder head. The result is a six-cylinder engine that's both much narrower than a typical V6 and shorter than a straight six. In fact, it's more comparable in size to a four-cylinder than a six, which meant it could slot easily into a Golf floorpan. A creative and borderline ingenious engineering solution. Good for almost 190bhp and 180lb ft of torque, the VR6 unit could haul the Corrado to 62 mph in a claimed 6.7 seconds, which is more than respectable in 2020 but in 1992 must have seemed very rapid indeed.
Car was off the road for 14 years and underwent a thorough re-commissioning in 2018. A few old MOT Certificates and a handbook.
