Ferrari 4-cylinder racing engines have won two World Championships in Formula 1, and many victories with the 750 Monza, and with the 500 Testa Rossa, all with straight-4 powerplant.

Enzo Ferrari presented its first 4-cylinder 1-litre (1032 cc) engine in 1959. This all-alloy Overhead Cam powerplant was soon fitted into a Berlinetta, designed by no less than Giotto Bizzarrini for the chassis and suspensions, Chiti and Colombo (engine) and Giugiaro (Bertone) for the style... A pure Ferrari thoroughbred !

At the last moment, Enzo however decided to entrust the sale of his "baby" to A.S.A., a newly formed company, headed by Enzo's friend Oronzio De Nora.

The wonderful Ferrari-designed Berlinetta was engaged in famous races like Targa Florio, with very encouraging results, and racing ASA cars raced at Sebring, Daytona, and Le Mans... The Ferrari DNA was truly there.

Only around 85 berlinettas were ever built (and about ten spiders) before ASA sadly had to close in 1967. Today, the rare survivors of ASA-Ferrari are highly-sought-after. AN ASA 1000 GT is exhibited at the Ferrari Museum in Maranello, next to the Dino 246. These two "lower capacity" Ferrari were both sold "without the badge", but are nevertheless authentic Ferrari models, the ASA having however a more racing-like engine (close to 100 HP/litre) than the Dino.

The car that we are offering is an excellent 1966 example of ASA 1000 GT, forgotten for many years, and that we acquired to undertake a complete restoration. This work has just been completed in Italy, by he best expert of the make, and paintwork done by a top Italian specialist in the orignal colour.

This example is one of the last ten ever built, and has a specific, unique 8-counters dashboard, whilst other production examples have only seven.

This very rare ASA-Ferrari 1000 GT is a wonderful and exciting opportunity to own one of the rarest Ferrari-designed Berlinetta, in as-new condition... a car that many Collectors would be proud to own in their Collection.
