800 Derita Road, Ste. A
The 1993 Cadillac Allante was the final year for this Italian-American convertible, and it's the best of the breed. With the desirable Northstar engine, timeless color combo, and loaded with features, this one represents the best of it all. And it does it for a value price.
The reason why the Allante is so handsome is because it was the last model to follow in the tradition of the highest echelon of Cadillacs designed and built by the masters at Pininfarina. The Italian design house understood what Cadillac style was all about, and so that's why this one has some of the best lines to ever come out of the 1990s. In fact, the target was to beat the Mercedes SL, and it did so by looking lighter and sleeker than the German. It also helps that the glossy black highlights the sharply creased design, and at the same time, reminds you of pure Cadillac elegance. Competing for the shine is all the original trim that's still brilliant, including the bumper accents, grille, and polished factory wheels. There's even a tasteful tan trim line that encircles the car.
That delicate trim line on the outside is actually a nice preview of the tan leather interior. It's this kind of attention to detail that really drive home the premium feeling. It also helps that you have plenty of luxury features. This includes power seats, cruise control, power windows, power locks, an alarm system, driver airbag, premium AM/FM/CD stereo, and R134a air conditioning. The digital dash is a wonder of '90s technology, and it certainly delivers on Cadillac's modern promise of art and science. The top is a handsome black canvas affair that neatly stows beneath the hard tonneau cover behind the seats. Plus, the trunk is quite a useful shape that's big enough to handle much more than a weekend's worth of luggage. So don't forget those golf clubs!
While this has a great color combo, the big reason people pay extra for a final-year Allante is under the hood. This was the one and only time you could get Cadillac's superb fuel-injected 4.6-liter Northstar V8. It produces 295 horsepower, which is a huge 48 percent bump over the previous year! This is believed to be the original motor, and it runs with the gusto you'd expect out of a low-mileage modern classic. And because this was built to take on the best from Europe, driving dynamics were also on the engineers' minds. So, it came standard with features such as four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive and a fully independent suspension. Finishing this stellar package is the confidence of four-wheel disc brakes, power steering, and anti-lock brakes.
Complete with the original warranty card and owner's manual, this is the ideal athletic Allante. So don't let it slip away. Call now!
