Originally designed under the code name "Callisto", the Allant was intended to restore Cadillac to its position as a premium luxury automobile builder. Allant's direct competitor was the very successful Mercedes-Benz SL, and to a smaller degree, the Jaguar XJS. Allant's 4.1 liter V8 was shared with other Cadillacs across the line, but when specified to the Allant, several changes were made. Unlike Buick's Reatta, which shared powertrain and underpinnings from the Riviera and the Oldsmobile Toronado, Cadillac borrowed very little from the Eldorado and Seville for Allant.

The body of the Allant was designed and built in Italy by Pininfarina (of Ferrari fame). The completed bodies were shipped 3,300 miles (5,300 km) from Italy in specially equipped Boeing 747s, 56 at a time, to Cadillac's Detroit/Hamtramck Assembly plant. The bodies were then mated to the chassis. This led to a few interesting nicknames, such as "The Flying Italian Cadillac" and "The world's longest assembly line."
