    Building a Corrado "RS"

    The Corrado RS is a Volkswagen Corrado VR6 fettled with to the Nth degree. If something could be improved on, it was. If it was unnecessary to the overall goal of creating a focused, undistracted driving experience, it was tossed. Nothing was taken for granted - long-term drive-ability, durability, and reliability were ensured.

    Taken on its own merits, the Corrado RS will stack up against some of the best factory and after-market cars, modified with a similar thought process in mind. It borrows heavily from the spirit of such great cars as any Porsche RS variant, the Renault Megane R26.R, the Mk1 Audi TT Quattro Sport, and the BMW M3 CSL.

      Driving like a banshee is great. It's fun, it's exhilarating, it's therapeutic, it gets your senses working overtime. Channel your anger through the steering wheel of your “RS” car, and the combination of burnt fuel, crackling exhaust, and melting rubber combine to calm you better than any scented candle on the market. But it's all for naught if you begin to sweat profusely at the first sign of traffic because you binned A/C in search of a modicum of extra power. It's all for naught if you lose ...
