The Volkswagen Corrado is a hatchback coupé developed by German automaker Volkswagen and built by Karmann in Osnabrück, Germany, between 1 September 1988 and 31 July 1995.

Conceived as a successor to the successful Scirocco, it is a three-door hatchback with a 2+2 seating layout. The Corrado used Volkswagen’s B3 platform in the rear of the car, while using the A2 platform technology up front, which it shared with the then-current Golf Mk2 and Jetta. It shared many mechanical parts with other Volkswagen A platform cars as well. In 1990 the Corrado went on sale in the United States.

The versions produced from 2001 to 2008 are based on the platform of the Volkswagen Passat, but are elongated by 10 centimetres (3.9 in), and shares its major mechanicals and powertrain with the Passat, and therefore the larger resources of Škoda Auto’s parent company Volkswagen Group. It is currently the largest and most luxurious model in Škoda’s model range.

The Superb name is a resurrection, originally used by Škoda for a similarly large models, between 1934 and 1942.

The Alfa Romeo GT is a sports car produced by the Italian automaker Alfa Romeo between 2004 and 2010. The GT was introduced in March 2003 Geneva Motor Show and it came for sale in Italian markets January 2004.

Like the 147, the GT was based on the platform of Alfa’s outgoing mid-size 156 estate (Sportwagon in this case) car,[citation needed] with the coupé body styled by Bertone.[4] Most mechanicals are taken directly from the 156/147[4] using the same double wishbone front suspension and multilink rear setup as those two cars. The interior is based heavily on that of the smaller hatchback 147 and utilises many common parts. The GT utilises the same dash layout and functions , the complete climate control system as well as having a very similar electrical system. The engine range includes both a 1.8 and 2.0 petrol engine, a 1.9 MultiJet turbodiesel, and a top-of-the-range 3.2 V6 petrol.
