About our 1993 Cadillac Allante

The Allante featured in our private collection has been carefully preserved and used sparingly, it display just 11,000 miles from new. Finished in the ever popular Pearl Red with beige leather, it also was fitted with a hard top for seasonal driving when a closed coupe is preferred. The Northstar engine is such an improvement that many owners of the first series immediately sold there earlier cars for a trade up to this aggressive upgraded powerplant and proven dependability of an all new electrical system and fuel injection. “Neck snapping” is the term most associated with the new Allantes driving prowess and true sports car performance is achieved, a first for any car ever badged with the Cadillac crest.

History of the 1993 Cadillac Allante
The stunning Allante was an Italian-American co-production which sent bodies from Pininfarina’s Italian carosserie near Turin Italy to Michigan for final assembly. Produced between 1987 and 1993, the Allante was modified and upgraded continually before arriving in its final and best iteration in 1993. Powered by the very first Northstar thirty-two-valve twin cam engine, displaced at 4.6 liters, the power was substantially increased to 295 HP and 290 ft. lb. of torque. It was capable of 0-60 in 6.4 seconds and topped at over 140 mph. Production on the Allante’s ended after the 1993 model with 4,670 units sold, the most for any single year of production. Still GM claimed it lost money on every car built, even with the excessive price tag of $65,000 new. A fitting compliment to the Allante’s prowess in the luxury sports market was that Car and Driver Magazine picked it as favorite in comparison to the Mercedes 300SL and the Jaguar V-12 XJS.
