Cadillac Allanté

The Cadillac Allanté is a two-entryway, two-seater sports auto showcased by Cadillac from 1986 until 1993, with around 21,000 units worked over a seven-year generation run.

Initially intended to contend with the Mercedes-Benz SL and Jaguar XJS, the Allanté highlighted a somewhat changed variation of the 4.1 liter V8 utilized over Cadillac's model line.

The Allanté is noted for an unordinary generation game plan, where finished bodies — planned and made in Italy by Pininfarina were sent 4,600 miles from Italy in uncommonly prepared Boeing 747s, 56 at a time,[1] to Cadillac's Detroit/Hamtramck Assembly plant where they were mated with locally made frame and motor gatherings. This was not the first occasion when that Cadillac swung to Pininfarina for body work, they beforehand cultivated out body generation to the Turin-based coachbuilder for the 1959 Eldorado Brougham, and in addition that for a few unique cases, traditions, and idea autos.

The name Allanté was chosen by General Motors from a rundown of 1700 PC produced names.
