CORV-RIOT ??? never heard of it?  Probably not..........because there is only one in the world.  But you'll never forget it after today.

The CORV-RIOT is a stunningly crafted and designed car, for those who don't mind being noticed.  There is nothing subtle about this car at all.  1st cabin quality components abound.  In surprisingly reliable fashion.  The CORV-RIOT started life as a RIOT VW based kit car.  The riot is a lovely car, but the front end has been an area of critisism, by some.  In review of the lines, and extremely wide body, a keen eye could imagine that a corvette nose, would be a stunning modification for the car.  Add some flush headlamps (courtesey of nissan 300zx), and a more streamlined windscreen, and the car would be transformed into a real piece of rolling artistry.  And that is what the CORV-RIOT is in a nutshell.  A dream car, that can be driven and enjoyed on the road.  Add to that something that is truly enjoyable to drive, and that is reliable..........and it is a combination rarely mated.

The CORV-RIOT features beautifully crafted custom made Forgeline wheels, super wide in the back, with a huge offset to properly fill the wheel openings.  The wheels alone cost close to $4000.  Firehawk low profile tires complete the look.  The 3A racing polished stainless steel exhaust, is truly a thing of beauty, and is first cabin quality.  The VW engine was rebuilt, compartment insulated and electrically ducted, and has very little time on it.  Runs and shifts as it should.  Seats are out of a Porsche Beck 550 Spyder, and look and feel fabulous.  Talbot style side view mirrors.  Quick fill, motorcycle style flush fuel filler.  Formula steering wheel and much, much more. Absolutely a blast to drive, please see our video.  Fresh paint, has been color sanded and buffed, to a high gloss.  Last registered in California in  2004, and is out of the system, so no penalties are due, and simple to transfer/register.  The car has two gas tanks, but is currently running on only one small one, without a gauge.  The second tank can be added to the system, if you decide you will be taking long trips.  VW pan is California solid.

Unique and reliable..........the CORV-RIOT is offered here, to the public for the very first time.  Presently the car has never been entered or displayed at any car can be the first !!  This opportunity only comes once in a lifetime, so seize it...........if you dare.  Imagine the looks you'll get !!!

Willing to consider interesting trades up or down.  Subject to local sale, so bid or contact me right away if you are serious about owning this car, before it goes to a local buyer.  I reserve the right to end this auction early.  Please feel free to contact me to inspect the car or take a test drive in advance of the auction sale date. Happy to work with your overseas shipping company.  Tomo 562/714-2986

 Here's a update youtube video of the Corv-RIOT

We are replacing the master cylinder with a new part as we spotted a leak.  This repair will be completed at the sellers expense and likely well prior to the end of the auction.  Thanks for all of your questions and interest!

Good luck bidders!
