Car description

When Cadillac unveiled the Allante, it was also an announcement that they were once again serious about building high-end luxury cars. With a body by Pininfarina and robust Cadillac Northstar mechanicals, the Allante was a beautifully built and stylish machine that never really got a fair shake from the motoring public.
This 1993 Cadillac Allante is an extremely clean 33,000-mile specimen wrapped in a highly desirable color scheme of Polo Green over tan leather. They only built 960 Polo Green Allantes, and combined with the one-year-only Northstar powertrain, it makes this THE Allante to own. As a hand-assembled car, panel gaps and alignment are better than the rest of the Cadillac line up, and even after 25 years, the paint looks great so the quality was there when it was new. Details are clean and crisp, from the traditional Cadillac grille up front to the slick clear taillights that pre-dated the current trend by more than a decade. There are a few signs of use, of course, but nothing that detracts for the look and you'll probably find that most folks don't realize that this is a 25-year-old car. That's the power of good design. The black canvas convertible top is in excellent condition, folding neatly into its well behind the seats where it is covered by a hard shell, and this car includes a color-matched hardtop, a very desirable option.
Most Allantes were dressed with tan leather like this, and it's a spectacular contrast to the paint. The effect is magnified by the two-tone materials used the interior, including on the dash and center console, and the effect is upscale and sporty rather than garish. Cadillac used the Allante to explore new technology including a computer that will monitor things such as low fluids and even reminds you to turn on your headlights when it gets dark, and most Allante enthusiasts prefer the analog gauges on this car. Automatic climate control was, of course, part of the package, as well as a powerful stereo system that stills sounds great with the top down. The seats have a comfortable look, but no signs of damage or neglect, and the plushly upholstered trunk compartment looks like new.
1993 was the only year of Cadillac's brilliant 4.6 liter Northstar V8 in the Allante, which made a very impressive 300 horsepower. Extremely reliable and with enough power to make the Allante a sprightly performer on the road, it's the ideal traveling partner when the sun is shining and the top is down. The engine bay is clean and well-maintained, which is just what you want to see in one of these cars. The engine is backed by a 4-speed automatic that delivers crisp shifts and has quick reflexes for when you want to run fast, something this car is more than capable of doing. Underneath, it's exceptionally clean and shows no signs of rust or structural damage, owing to careful ownership for the past 25 years. It fires up with a muscular bark from the exhaust, which suggests power in a sophisticated way, and pulls cleanly to speeds that'll get you jail time in most states. For the first time in decades, this was a Cadillac that was actually fun to drive. Factory alloys wear 225/60/16 Goodyear radials, so it's ready to enjoy without a second thought.
Today, the Allante represents a tremendous value. A V8-powered 2-seater with 300 horsepower and every luxury feature imaginable, it's a wonderful car to own and drive for not a lot of money. Summer's approaching fast, do you have a convertible yet? Call today!
