1989 Cadillac ALANTE --

The Cadillac Allanté is a two-door, two-seater luxury roadster produced by Cadillac from 1987 until 1993. It used a Cadillac chassis and running gear with a body built in Italy by coachbuilder Pininfarina. It was expensive to produce with the complete bodies flown to Detroit for final assembly. Over 21,000 were built during its seven-year production run. In 1989, the price rose to $57,183. Allanté's engine, the new 273ci produced 200 hp and with 270 lbâ‹...ft of torque, it provided...the most torque from any front-wheel-drive automobile in the world. Unlocking the trunk also unlocked the side doors â€" similar to Mercedes-Benz and BMW. As a theft-deterrent, Allanté added GM's Pass Key utilizing a resistor pellet within the ignition key that has the ability to render the fuel system and starter inoperative if an incorrect ignition key is used. Allanté also received a new speed-sensitive damper system called Speed Dependent Damping Control. This system firmed up the suspension at 25 mph and again at 60 mph. The firmest setting was also used when starting from a standstill until 5 mph. Another change was a variable-assist steering system.
