The Allante was Cadillac's initial entry into the luxury roadster market. It was first introduced in 1987 to compete with Mercedes-Benz 560 SL. In its first launching, Cadillac Allante was equipped with 4.1 liter PFI (port fuel injected) V8 engine but it was later replaced by a 4.5 liter PFI V8 rated at 200 horsepower. This engine remained as Allante's power source until 1993, its final year of production, when it was replaced by a more powerful engine.
Allante's chassis was made in Detroit then it was shipped to Italy to mount its body to the chassis. After this, the cars were shipped back to the USA via jetliners for completion. Because of this, Cadillac Allante received incredible phrases such as "the flying Cadillac from Italy" and "the world's longest assembly line." The general manager of Cadillac said that Allante is Cadillac's test-bed vehicle because it helped in finding out the reliability of systems including computer-command ride control and traction control before they were used in other Cadillac cars.
In 1993 model year, its final season, Allante's edition is absolutely better than the original version in terms of performance, ride, handling and quietness. Its performance received a giant improvement with the introduction of the 4.6 liter, 32-valve, 295-horsepower Northstar V-8 engine achieving a 0-to-60 mph in 7 seconds and a top speed of 150 mph. This is a smooth and quiet engine that provides a kick. Cadillac Allante also comes with independent four-wheel suspension and road sensing device. Also standard are traction-control, driver-side airbags and speed-sensitive steering.
