The Allante was once again available as a convertible or as a convertible hardtop that included both a convertible top and a removable all-aluminum hardtop.
The engine (cast iron cylinders in aluminum) was the same 4.5 liter V8 and F-7 four-speed automatic transaxle that was used in 1990. However, the engine had a new air intake resonator for quieter performance. The resonator remove a little bit of the roar when driving up a hill, but the exhaust note was the same as in 1990. Engine power was improved through the use of straighter intake ports and larger valves (45mm intake and 38mm exhaust). The exhaust was evacuataed through thin-wall, cast iron manifolds that were shaped for minimum flow resistance. Also, to help reeduce oil aeration, a new gearotor-type oil pump was added to the engine.
The convertible featured an improved, Phase II ergonomically-designed, power-fastening, folding soft top.
Inside, the Allante’s previous light charcoal interior carpeting and floor mats were replaced with dark charcoal counterparts.
