Now is your time to pick up an affordable luxury drop top that was
once reserved only for the elite. This 1991 Cadillac Allante is
about opulence, from the design of the sheetmeatal, to its leather
interior, to its recently rebuilt V8. So it's time to pay attention
when this modern luxury classic is well within reach.
The shine on the white paint is the product of a professional respray that happened about two-thirds into this convertibles lifetime. While American cars were once all about chrome, the trim you're really going to notice is the hint of red that forms an unbroken line around the whole vehicle. That's a nice subtle nod to this car relationship to Ferrari - their preferred design house Pininfarina designed and hand assembled by this Cadillac. The body was then flown in a special 747 jet from Italy to the USA where Detroit made the final drivetrain assembly. So this one is an international effort that captures the best of the car worlds.
Beneath the folding black canvas roof is a great looking black leather interior. The design shows off more European sophistication, starting with 10-way power adjusting seats designed by Recaro. 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 a full gauges, AM/FM/CD/cassette stereo, trip computer, and automatic climate control (with the A/C running modern R134a.) As true to the Cadillac name, there are plenty more luxury features such as cruise control, power windows, power locks, 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.
Cadillac's 4.5-liter V8 is a motor you're going to love. It has been rebuilt around 28,000 miles ago, so it fires up and idles like a smooth Caddy should. In fact, General Motors was squarely aiming for the Mercedes SL. That's why you find such an opulent design, four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive, and a luxurious ride. And just like the Europeans, this Allante can hold the road with authority thanks to features like four-wheel disc brakes, ABS, and a fully independent suspension.
Complete with maintenance records and the owner's manual, you get a true thoroughbred Caddy convertible for the price of an old economy hatchback. Deals like this don't last long. Call today!!
