The 1993 Cadillac Allante was the final year for this
Italian-American convertible, and it's the best of the breed. With
the desirable Northstar engine, plenty of recent maintenance
receipts, an exclusive color, and loaded with features, this one
represents the best of it all. And it does it for a value
The reason why the Allante is so handsome is that it was the last
model to follow in the tradition of the highest echelon of
Cadillacs designed and built by the masters at Pininfarina. The
Italian design house understood what Cadillac style was all about,
and so that's why this one has some of the best lines to ever come
out of the 1990s. In fact, the target was to beat the Mercedes SL,
and it did so by looking lighter and sleeker than the German. It
also helps that this is in a sophisticated color like Polo Green.
This shows the right signs of originality, and on a car that has
averaged under 1,900 miles annually, it means it does show some use
but it still knows how to have a nice gloss in the sunshine. So
while you may opt to take some of the savings of the value price
and invest in a full detailing, we appreciate that a finish can
only be original once. And this is truly special, because green was
basically only offered for one year, and less than 1,000 were
produced ever. It looks striking with some nice hints of gold trim.
Plus, there's additional brightwork in good places like the grille,
bumper trim, and high-polish 16-inch wheels.
The black convertible top goes well with the deep green exterior,
but for true distinction, you want to take the roof down. After
all, a tan leather interior against this green really drives how
much this American looks like a European sophisticate. This
upper-class image is also earned through plenty of luxury features.
This includes power seats, cruise control, power windows, power
locks, a cup holder center armrest, driver airbag, and a premium
AM/FM/CD stereo with cassette. Plus, the automatic climate control
recently has over $1,200 invested to keep the R134a air
conditioning blowing cold. The trunk is quite a useful shape that's
big enough to handle much more than a weekend's worth of luggage.
So don't forget those golf clubs!
While this has a great color combo, the big reason people pay extra
for a final year Allante is under the hood. This was the only time
you could get Cadillac's superb fuel-injected 4.6-liter Northstar
V8. It produces 295 horsepower, which is a huge 48 percent bump
over the previous year! As you look through the maintenance file on
this car, you'll also see nice investments in 2022 that include
engine mounts, a tune-up, and major fluids flush/change. The
four-speed automatic transmission was also given a recent service.
And because this was built to take on the best from Europe, driving
dynamics were also part of the engineering. So, it came standard
with a fully independent suspension - now featuring new rear
shocks. Finishing this stellar package is the confidence of
four-wheel power disc brakes, power steering, and anti-lock
Complete with owner's manual, you may find some details to improve,
and the value price leaves room in your budget for updates and
personalization. But there's already something fundamentally
attractive about a rare color and a rare powerful motor offered in
an affordable luxury cruiser. So if you're looking for true
distinction, call today!!!
