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, an exclusive color, 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 this is in a sophisticated color like Polo Green. This shows the right signs of originality, and on a car that has averaged about 1,900 miles annually, it means it does show some use but it still knows how to have a nice gloss in the sunshine. So while you may opt to take some of the value price and invest in a full detailing or a tune-up, we appreciate that a finish can only be original once. And this is truly special, because green was basically only offered for one year, and less than 1,000 were produced ever. And as a true Cadillac, you get the right hints of brightwork on the grille, bumper trim, and high-polish 16-inch wheels.
The black convertible top goes well with the deep green exterior, but for true distinction, you want to take the roof down. After all, a tan leather interior against this green really drives how much this American looks like a European sophisticate. This upper-class image is also earned through plenty of luxury features. This includes power seats, cruise control, power windows, power locks, a cup holder center armrest, driver airbag, premium AM/FM/CD stereo, and automatic climate control with R134a air conditioning. 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! And because this was built to take on the best from Europe, driving dynamics were also part of the engineering. 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.
This Allante has the ideal motor, the ideal color, and the ideal price. So don't let it slip away.
