For Sale: 1993 Cadillac Allante in Ft Worth, Texas


Vehicle 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, cars this 1993 Allante (the final year of production) was a beautifully built and stylish machine that never really got a fair shake from the motoring public. With a clean history, a great color combination, and only 20,320 original miles on the clock, this is a wonderfully preserved example of the "European Caddy".

This 1993 Cadillac Allante is an extremely clean 20,320-mile specimen wrapped in a highly desirable color scheme of Pearl Red over tan leather. Pearl Red was a very sought after color when it was introduced, and combined with the one-year-only powerful 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 27 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 27-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.

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 the LCD digital instrument found in this beauty was an extra $495 option at the time. 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 practically new.

1993 was the only year of Cadillac's brilliant 4.6 liter Northstar V8 in the Allante, which made a very impressive 295 horsepower. Based on a Lotus design and with technology later incorporated into the Corvette ZR-1, it's extremely intuitive and has enough power to make the Allante a sprightly performer on the road. It's also the ideal cruising partner when the sun is shining and the top is down, and had innovative features like the ability to run up to 100 miles without coolant in the block, and the starter installed inside the engine block to keep it out of the elements. The engine bay is clean and well-maintained, which is just what you want to see in one of these cars, even with the low miles. The Northstar 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 27 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 chrome alloys (only offered in 1993) wear 225/60/16 Hankook radials, so it's ready to enjoy without a second thought.

Today, the Allante represents a tremendous value. A V8-powered 2-seater with almost 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!
