Über dieses Bild:

Illustration of a VW Corrado VR6. The Corrado was built between 1988 and 1995 at the Karmann factory in Osnabrueck, Germany. Originally conceived as a possible successor to the Porsche 944, the Corrado is a three-door hatchback/liftback with a 2+2 seating layout. The Corrado is recognizable by its wedge profile, flush mounted windows and active rear spoiler that raises automatically when the car exceeds 50 mph (45mph in the North American market) and automatically retracts at speeds below 15 mph or it can be manually controlled from a switch in the cockpit. The VR6 engine provided a compromise between both V-shaped and straight engines by placing the two cylinder banks at an angle of 15 degrees with a single cylinder head. This design allowed engineers to fit a six-cylinder engine into roughly the same space that was previously occupied by four-cylinder engines, while closely approaching the smoothness of a straight-six design. It was designed by Herbert Schaefer. (Wikipedia)
