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.
