    Thread: Proud new owner of the 2 rarest Corrado (Magnums) ever made

    1. 02-12-2007 11:57 AM #1
      The 2 rarest Corrados ever built will be coming to America!
      I recently completed negotiating the purchase of both of the Corrado Magnum - Sport Kombi's from Germany. These 2 VW Prototypes were both built by Marold Automobil GmbH for VW so that VW could determine if they were going to put them into production. VW ultimately decided against producing them and Marold tried selling the 2 cars and all technical data for 3.2 Million DM's. Since then the cars have been in storage at Marold.
      VW has expressed interest in having one car in the VW museum so I may only bring one car to the US for now.
      Many thanks to Vortex Member Torsten for posting the FS link on vortex.
      Enjoy the pics:

      Torsten,
      Thanks so much for your intial post. I owe you a beer.
      Are you in Holland? These cars may be in Holland soon prior to the trip to the US. My father is from Alkmaar, and I have family in the area.

      I will probably just have them shipped, but I may bring them to Holland first. If I do I will visit them in Holland.

    18. 02-12-2007 12:37 PM #16
      When will they be here on Long Island? I'd love to come by and see

      Jesus John. . What are you going to do, open up a museum to finance the racing career?

      how is customs letting you get those through?
      they took down two of my friends imported skylines... and he had them in pieces the way they are needed to get through. and they still kept them and shipped them back and lost his money.
      hopefully you have better luck.

      I spoke with the head of the DOT deptarment responsible for approving and disapproving cars for importation. Because these cars are Prototypes and only 2 exist they can be allowed into the US under the "Show & Display" specifications. They must still meet US emissions standards but this gentleman I spoke with told me he asked around the approval committee and felt I will not have an issue getting approval. I still need to file a formal application and proposal.
