The car was produced in small numbers and was unique in several ways. First, the bodies were designed and manufactured by Pininfarina in Italy, then flown to Detroit for final assembly. Engine power was initially provided by a 4.1-liter aluminum V-8 engine with multi-port fuel injection at 170 hp, mated to a front wheel drive automatic transmission. The mild power ratings set against the Allante's 3,720-pound curb weight, plus the front-wheel-drive configuration and automatic transmission made the car more suited for comfortable highway cruising than for sporty driving. Yet the Allante offered state-of-the-art technology for Cadillac, with four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, Macpherson strut suspension, a digital dashboard, and a Bose stereo. The Allante was sold with an aluminum hardtop and cloth folding top on all models.
