It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. Sort of. Cadillac wasn’t in a terrible spot in the early 1990s, but some of its cars were… let’s say, lacking.
The Cadillac Allante was meant to fix this, though. The coach-built, Pininfarina convertible was to take on the Mercedes-Benz SL with gobs of American and Italian luxury. But, as history unfolded, that was never really the case.
But, if you are a die-hard Allante fan, you’ll be delighted to know you can still buy one. A brand new one, that is.
CarScoops spotted this 1993 Cadillac Allante for sale, originally listed and reported on by Autotrader Canada and it’s been sitting at the same GM dealership in Barrie, Ontario for 24 years. The story has it that the owner is very much a fan of peculiar cars and sort of, kind of doesn’t want to see the 1993 Allante go. That’s reflected in the car’s asking price of $77,743 CAD, or $59,500 USD. Per the initial report, the most expensive Allante ever sold went for just $10,725 USD.
The Allante certainly has a great story behind it, but $59,500 can buy you quite a few toys. But, if your keen on it, the coach-built, Northstar V8 powered roadster could be yours.
