History of the Cadillac Allante

In the early 1980s Cadillac wanted a car to compete with other automakers like the Jaguar XJS, and the Mercedes Bens SL. So in 1982 they went to the offices of Sergio Pininfarina in Turin Italy. Mr. Pininfarina agreed to build their flagship car, which was then named the "Callisto". Cadillac granted Pininfarina creative license design the car with only one restriction, which was to preserve their trademark grill, and emblem. In 1983 the Callsito went into development.
The Allanté as we know it is built on a shortened Eldorado frame. So the first logistical issue for Cadillac is how to transport the chassis, and miscellaneous other components to Turin so Pininfarina could assemble their body to it.
Their solution started a flow of red ink that totaled more than twenty four billon by the end of the Allantés production.
Three special Boeing 747 aircrafts were customized to hold 56 Allantés each. The Allantés had to be flown over the Atlantic Ocean twice. The 747's left Detroit with Eldorado chassis halves, instruments, air conditioning, steering column, and most of the electronics. When the parts arrived at the Pininfarina plant, they cut and welded the two sub chassis together, installed the bodies and interior, painted them. The cars were then attached to special carrier racks, loaded into the planes, and flown back to the Hamtramck Detroit assembly plant. In Detroit Cadillac installed the front and rear sub frames, suspension, drive train, steering box, brakes, fuel tank, wheels and the tires. Final system tests were run on the Bosch III ABS braking system, and each car was test driven for 25 miles. This entire process was called the "Allanté Air Bridge", and has also been referred to as "The world's longest assembly line".
Now the brand new 1987 Allante was ready to be shipped to the dealers. This was done by having quite a few specially design car carriers made to haul these Italian / American babies to their specified Cadillac dealerships. The trailers were covered in blue canvas to conceal the unique appearance of Cadillac's new flagship automobile. The "Callisto" no, The "LTS" (luxury Two-seater) no! The "Allanté" Yes! By the way the word Allanté has no meaning. It was one of 1,700 computer generated words that they chose from. I did a little research and I think since many Cadillac's have had Spanish names, the word "Adelate"(ADD-A-LANTE) in Spanish means to move forward. Makes sense to me.
In September of 1987, The Brand new Cadillac Allanté hit the showrooms. The price of these beauties was to start at $50.000, and GM forecasted to sell 6,000 units a year. Now they had to market them. This was going to be very hard and expensive to do. If you were in the market for a sports car, would you go to a Caddy dealer? Think not! So Cadillac tried to market them in commercials, TV shows, and in the theaters. There was even a movie called "Terminal Velocity' that featured the Allanté from the beginning to the end of the show. This was not helping because in the introduction year they had only sold approximately 3,000 cars, and the same in 1988. By year two, sports car buyers were learning that you could go to a Caddy dealer and get a luxury sports car. But news spread fast. They Leak.
Now we need to back up a little, Cadillac wanted The 1987 Allanté ready for sale in September 1986. Pininfarina said they needed to hold back one more year due to problems with the soft-tops. They knew that they would all leak. Pininfarina need to make the soft-tops bigger. Cadillac said no, so out they came, leaking all over the place, damaging window switches, seat switches, carpet, etc. As fast as they sold them, Cadillac got them back. Now they had to fix every Allante weather seal. Now they had to redesign the weather strips. They changed from rubber to a foam / rubber strip. This did help, but as you know almost every Allanté leaks at one time or another.
1989 and 1990 were great years for the Allanté. Cadillac improved it, with the re-tooling of the soft-top, 4.5 engine with 200 + horsepower, 16" wheels, lower headrest, telescopic steering wheel, electronic suspension. But still failed on sales because of its reputation of the 87-88 models. Cadillac needed to do something. And they did. In mid production on the 1990's, they redesigned the Allante again. Thus being the 1990.5 also known as the Phase 2 added a little more to the car and took some things away like the chrome strips around the headlights, the telescopic wheel and the hard top. New to this year was the drivers side airbag, CD player, better suspension and handling, different soft-top boot cover with better mini covers, better sound to the Bose audio system, better designed to the seat switches, And power front latches for the soft-top.
For those of you that have a 1990 Allante, check the built date on the drivers side door jam to see when it was built. This year Allante is the hardest to determining if its a 90 or 90.5 because we have came across some built in late 90 but had manual latches on the top. Were thinking that when they redesigned it, they came across extra parts of the 89 to 90 years and used them up. But one of the best ways to determine a 90.5 is if you have a 1990 Allante with an air-bag most likely it is a 90.5.
