In the world of modern Cadillac models, the Allante stands out as an unusual and special one — an Italian-bodied Cadillac luxury convertible with a short lifespan and an odd presence in the brand’s lineup, both then and now. But this particular Allante is even more unusual than normal.
That’s because the Allante you see here is a "Mary Kay" Edition, finished in pink. The Mary Kay Edition was a special version of the Allante — and other Cadillac models over the years — painted in pink and offered to especially successful Mary Kay distributors. The ad offering this particular Mary Kay Cadillac notes that just 53 examples were made of the Allante, then Cadillac’s hot new sports car, and a fraction of that figure survives today.
This particular Allante shows 83,500 miles and still wears its pink exterior color, along with a red leather interior and a black top. It’s in nice shape given its mileage, and it was clearly well preserved by past owners. It was first registered in Kalamazoo, Michigan, in 1993, and a long-term owner registered it in Portage, Michigan, in 2000, near Kalamazoo, and owned it there until 2018.
It’s now offered for sale by GR Auto Gallery in Grand Rapids, Michigan, whose inventory always delights and dazzles us, and it’s listed for just $9,900. Allante models never really took off in value, so this pricing seems market-correct — but it’s a neat example of a neat car, and you’re unlikely to ever see another one on the road, especially in pink.
