The car has a grey leather interior. The Allante was a limited production run, with only 2,500 being manufactured in 1991.  The Allante was designed by Pininfarina, an Italian designer and coach builder known for their designs with firms such as Maserati and Ferrari. This luxurious two seater features a 4.5 Litre V-8 engine, with 200 hp and 270 ft/lbs of torque.

Some of the options featured on this car is automatic temperature control, power convertible top, telecoping/tilt steering wheel, 10 way power seats with lumbar and memory settings, computer assisted suspension, cd player, power mirrors, automatic on/off headlights, power trunk lock, and power windows.

Originally designed to compete with the Mercedes-Benz SL and Jaguar XJS, the Allanté featured a slightly modified variant of the 4.1 liter V8 used across Cadillac’s model line.

The Allanté is noted for an unusual production arrangement, where completed bodies — designed and manufactured in Italy by Pininfarina  were shipped 4,600 mi (7,400 km) from Italy in specially equipped Boeing 747s, 56 at a time, to Cadillac’s Detroit/Hamtramck Assembly plant where they were mated with domestically manufactured chassis and engine assemblies. Bodies had to be flown from the Turin International Airport in Italy to Detroit’s Coleman A. Young International Airport, about 3 miles northeast of the new Hamtramck factory, known as the “Allante Air Bridge”. The expensive shipping process was implemented because GM had recently closed the Fisher Body Plant #18 which traditionally supplied Cadillac bodies since 1921. This was not the first time that Cadillac turned to Pininfarina for body work, they previously farmed out body production to the Turin-based coachbuilder for the 1959 Eldorado Brougham, as well as that for several one-offs, customs, and concept cars.
