The history of Cadillac dates back to 1902. In 1992, the company celebrated its 90 anniversary in fitting style with the introduction of its new Northstar V8 engine. Later in the year, the final 4,670 examples of the Pininfarina designed Allante's were produced, each equipped with Cadillac's new flagship engine. They were equipped with the Quiet Coil Direct Ignition System and Fluid Induction System, complimented by a road-sensing suspension, speed sensitive steering, and Bosch traction control which greatly improved the cars handling.
This car has traveled less than 49,000 miles since new. It retains its original red paint color and black convertible canvas top. Inside it features the 'Symphony Sound' AM/FM/cassette/CD stereo, digital gauge display, and electronic climate control.
In 2008 this Allante Convertible was brought to the Automobiles of Amelia presented by RM Auctions where it had an estimated value of $12,000 - $16,000. Bidding surpassed those estimates, settling at $24,200 including buyer's premium.
