Cadillac Allante is that kind of new classic that's briefly in the
When Cadillac was out to reclaim its "Standard of the World" maxim, they enlisted only the best. That's why the body was assembled by the style masters at Pininfarina. Then they were flown by special jet to Detroit where they were completed in one of the company's newest facilities. And while the hand-crafted international legacy will always make these desirable, this one has much more going for it than just history. The body has classic proportions and finely creased sheetmetal. This example has been treated with the right respect from day one, and so you still recognize this standout design the moment it arrives. And the white paint has that perfect pearl shine that will make you proud to drive this one on sunny days. And even on the gray days, the color-matched hardtop gives this Italian-American the look of a sleek coupe. Plus, we like how the factory wheels retain a great mirror-like shine. After all, a true classic American always needs a dash of chrome, right?
The pinstripe running on the outside of the car is your first hint at the tan leather that awaits you inside. This interior is true Cadillac luxury, and it begins the moment you sit down. This has 10-way power adjusting seats designed by Recaro, so you can always get comfortable for the long haul. The digital dash is a wonder of '90s technology, and certainly delivers on Cadillac's modern promise of art and science. It offers advanced digital features such as full gauges, AM/FM/CD/cassette stereo, trip computer, and automatic climate control. True to the Cadillac name, there are plenty more luxury features such as power windows, cruise control, power locks, driver's airbag, and an alarm system. The trunk is big enough to handle much more than a weekend's worth of luggage, which makes this the perfect getaway companion.
In fact, if you're going to take this Caddy on vacations, you'll be looking for the long and winding roads. The fuel-injected 4.5-liter V8 is torque-happy thoroughbred built to offer effortless power at any time. The Allante was built as America's answer to the Mercedes SL. Thus, it came standard with great driving features such as four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive and a fully independent suspension that adapts at speed. Finishing this great driving package is the confidence of four-wheel disc brakes, power steering, and anti-lock brakes.
The sale comes with the owner's manual, maintenance records, and even the original instructional VHS. It's a great example of power and poise in a package that becomes more of a classic every day. So grab this one while it's still so affordable. Call today!!!
