Battista “Pinin” Farina founded an artisan workshop for wealthy private clients. Pininfarina celebrated its 80th anniversary at the Palexpo in Geneva unveiling the quizzically named 2uettottanta concept car designed for Alfa Romeo in homage to the Duetto of
the 1960s, “proving how a 2-seater spider could evolve into the
third millennium,” as the company chairman, Paolo Pininfarina, explained.
A sporty two passenger convertible with plenty of trunk space, the Allanté made its world debut at the 1986 Paris Motor Show with its simplicity of lines, harmony of proportions, and the Cadillac identity as American made. Originally high-priced, many of these vehicles have fallen into disrepair, have maintenance issues, or have never had the brakes or coolant flushed without community encouragement and prompting.
Purchasing any older car with no known history can open the door
to problems such as speakers, top of dash discoloration, coolant leak, oil pressure issues, brake problems, restarting the air conditioning compressor, parking brake, or spark plug issues.
