    Re: Pearl White vs. Opaque White

    Of the entire 7 year model run for the allante, there were 21430 Allantes produced. 6235 of them were in the white category (5379 Pearl and 856 regular white) for a whopping 29% of the entire prouction. there were 6.25 pearls for every regular white.

    In your search it might be useful to know that regular white was produced in only 1991-1993 MY but there were still more than twice as many Pearl white produced vs. regular white,

    The Pearl White color was/is gorgeous, even today (it used a 3 step process to achieve the depth of the color, etc.), but the Opaque White (some refer to it as "Refrigerator White) is also quite striking: I know of a 92 Allanté in that color, with a black (Charcoal) interior; the bright red trim stripe really sets this combination off.

    I have a 1993 Pearl White, which I love, especially when the sun hits it. But, if my choice was between a '89 or a 1992, the '92 has a better operating convertible top, which changed mid-1990, and has more power.

    Peace,

    Chief
