The Allant© was designed and built in Turin, Italy, by noted coachbuilder Pininfarina. It was a true Italian-American offspring, because below its sleekly styled Italian bodywork rested an American V-8 engine and transmission, as well as other reliable mechanical systems.
The 1993 model year Allante is widely considered the best one to own today. This was the only year Cadillac had the right stuff with an all-new and all-aluminum Northstar engine. The name ""Northstar"" itself came from Cadillac's quest for something to guide the marque back to prominence. The Northstar was a state-of-the-art engine that lived up to those lofty expectations when new, and this car still feels powerful today. The Northstar was the first domestic overhead-cam V-8 to employ 32 valves, four cams and four valves per cylinder. While the ZR-1 Corvette incorporated this technology a few years earlier, that engine was based on a Lotus design and not a domestic innovation. It is no surprise that a more powerful 1993 model Cadillac Allante similar to this car was selected to Pace the Indianapolis 500 race in 1992. Cadillac celebrated by issuing a few Pace Car replicas, and this is one of those few cars.

A powerful Northstar equipped 1993 Allante such as this car is the most sought-after model year, and an Indy Pace Car edition like this car is even more desirable. Finished in Pearl White with dark red interior, this rare Cadillac has dark red soft top as well as a removable hardtop. Adding to the glamour of the Allante is a set for factory chrome plated alloy wheels wrapped with a set of Vouge Custom Built Tyres. The interior is full of everything Cadillac had to offer and was extremely high-tech for its time. This Allante is still largely original, and runs great - the power will still pull you back in your seat, but with the smoothness and grace of a Cadillac. The Cadillac Allante was a very expensive car when new, so if you missed your chance in 1993, this is the car for you.
