    Re: 87 Allante for sale - why so cheap?

    The pearl white is a tricolor process (requiring two trips through the paint booth when the Allante's were built). That makes it more difficult to match. Pininfarina could only apply two at a time in their spray boot which is what is needed for basecoat/clearcoat. But with tricolor another coat is required. I believe the pearl white is metallic paint, but the biggest issue is the tricolor and what needed to be done to produce this.
