This example was imported from California in 2009 and is in outstanding original and unrestored condition. This exceptionally low-mileage example is undoubtedly one of the best in the country.

Presenting in “Opaque White” with a contrasting Burgundy interior, this unique colour scheme suits the luxury roadster perfectly. The paintwork and bodywork are in excellent condition, all tell-tale signs show that the car has been beautifully kept.

The eager 4.1L V8 is mated to an automatic transmission, making this example a pleasure to drive. In outstanding mechanical order, this car is ready to be driven from the showroom floor. With all relevant import documentation, receipts for work done, factory books and spare keys and original registration certificates, this Allante has a well-documented provenance. It would make an excellent addition to any collection.

Originally designed to compete with the Mercedes-Benz SL range and the Jaguar XJS, the Allante was a unique combination of Pininfarina styling and a powerful 4.1L V8 Engine. The bodies were designed and manufactured in Italy and then shipped to the U.S. where the bodies were mated to the American chassis and engine. Fitted with a number of factory features including a Bose sound system, the industry's first power retractable antenna, electric seats and windows, a fully digital instrument cluster and the option for a cellular telephone installed in the in the centre console, these examples were considered to be the height or U.S luxury at the time.
