bella questa ha ingombri europei..e porta la " f " maestro carrozzeriere sembra tenuta divinamente.

Me la ricordo proprio bene...ero andato a vederne una con mio padre in quegli anni, nuova, neri interni rossi, alla concessionaria SAIGARAGE a Milano che le importava.

Non se ne vedono più in giro! Bella combinazione cromatica e sembra in condizioni davvero ottime!
Anch'io me la ricordo da ragazzo come una supercar irraggiungibile ed elegantissima. Solo gli americani facevano quegli interni tutti colorati.. un fascino unico.

Io mi ricordo quando fù presentata l'Allantè e allora fece molto scalpore il ponte aereo Torino-Detroit per assemblarla. Auto che mi è sempre piaciuta, e cosa che non mi dispiace, abbastanza "rara", almeno da noi. Complimenti! Ma questa Allantè ha la strumentazione digitale o è già la versione "europeizzata" con il quadro analogico??
complimenti, irraggiungibile auto da sogno di quando ero bambino

A quei tempi (sembra incredibile) era nata anche una joint-venture tra Chrysler e Maserati... a Detroit si erano fatti abbindolare da quell'incantatore di serpenti di De Tomaso che possedeva la Maserati, ne era uscita una cabriolet abbastanza sgraziata che non mi ricordo bene come veniva assemblata ma anche li c'era uno scambio di scocche, motori, interni... la montavano a Lambrate. Immaginiamoci la somma di tutte queste cose insieme alla proverbiale affidabilità Maserati.. e Chrysler!



Se la memoria non mi inganna, il lestofante argentino era riuscito a farsi dare dei sussidi per costruire la macchina nello stabilimento ex-Innocenti, destinato in breve ad essere una cattedrale nel deserto.. l'esperimento durò pochi anni.



Sentite cosa si trova in rete:

The 1989 TC used a slightly detuned Daytona-spec [url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turbocharged"]turbocharged[/url] 2.2 L [url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inline-four_engine"]straight-4[/url] [url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chrysler_K_engine#2.2_TC"]Chrysler K engine[/url].

Adesso, Wikipedia sarà imprecisa come fonte ma è evidente che era un coacervo di pezzi messi insieme a caso... La concorrente dichiarata era proprio la Allanté..

Molto bella, complimenti.
Come caspita faceva ad andare tutto liscio?? Te lo immagini: spia "check engine soon" andavi dal concessionario Chrysler "eh no, deve andare in Maserati"

andavi in Maserati "eh guardi, ci vuole il tester Mitsubishi"

Poi "mah guardi noi i ricambi IHI non li abbiamo" provi in Innocenti, loro hanno la Mini Turbo, magari la turbina è la stessa... :grande_risata:

Che interni stupendi! E' stata conservata davvero molto bene!
Auto bellissima!

Mia moglie ha fatto un giro con quella di Lino13 e mi ha detto che ha una guida soffice e meravigliosa.
Citazione:Io mi ricordo quando fù presentata l'Allantè e allora fece molto scalpore il ponte aereo Torino-Detroit per assemblarla. Auto che mi è sempre piaciuta, e cosa che non mi dispiace, abbastanza "rara", almeno da noi. Complimenti! Ma questa Allantè ha la strumentazione digitale o è già la versione "europeizzata" con il quadro analogico??
Personalmente conosco un ex pilota Alitalia, che dopo essere stato al nostro raduno di novembre ed ha rivisto l'Allanté mo gli prende un coccolone perché era uno di quelli che faceva proprio la tratta Torino Detroit con i Cargo appositamente attrezzati solo per "la catena di montaggio più lunga del mondo"! Uno spettacolo!!!
