Those cars look nice, the interior reminds me of a cockpit of an airplane.

Those are intresting cars made partly in Italy then the body was flown over to Detroit for what ever else. All that moving around they weren't very cheap by the time they were up for sale.

They were especially expensive considering how poorly they were screwed and welded together, compared to a contemporary Benz or convertible Corvette.

First attempt at the Northstar drivetrain, and designed by Pinafarina I believe.

Good luck, almost 99% of JY'* know what Allante parts are worth, and you won't get off very easy.
