1993 Cadillac Allante 7,672 Miles Pearl White
The 1993 Cadillac Allante Roadster that is definitely collectible, but somewhat under appreciated by today’s market. During an era where Cadillac admittedly lost their #1 position in the luxury car field, there was a shining light in the form of the smaller, more nimble and modern Cadillac Allante.
Cadillac needed a statement car in the late 80’s, as younger buyers flocked to the European marques for their favored new cars. Next generation buyers knew your daddy drove a Caddy, so they simply wanted something different – Beemers and Benzes for the most part – and GM knew they needed to step up their game.
The Allante was Cadillac’s first venture into the ultra-luxury roadster market in many years, decades after dominating the drop-top luxury car market. The Allante was sold from 1987 through 1993, with roughly 21,000 models built over its 7-year model run.
The body of the Allanté was designed and built in Italy by legendary Italian coachbuilder Pininfarina, who of course created some of the world’s most desirable road cars ever for Ferrari, and also had a hand in the 1959 Eldorado Brougham. Cadillac sent completed chassis to Italy, and the completed bodies were shipped 3,300 miles back from Italy in specially-equipped Boeing 747s, 56 at a time, to Cadillac’s assembly plant in Hamtramck, Michigan. The bodies were then mated to the chassis, and on down the assembly line they went. Cadillac insiders called it “The world’s longest assembly line.”
