Known to some as the 'Ferrarina', the ASA 1000GT was a front engined rear-wheel drive two door coupe with a tubular spaceframe chassis. The body was designed by Bertone, whilst the mechanicals were designed by Giotto Bizzarrini (working at Ferrari). It was powered by a 1032cc dohc engine producing a stunning 91bhp and fitted with two twin barrel carburettors. Disc brakes were fitted on all four wheels, together with a double wishbone coil spring front suspension and a coil sprung live rear axle. A four speed manual transmission (with overdrive on third and fourth) was fitted. Production began slowly, with about seven cars built by 1964. At this point Bertone ceased producing the bodies and production went to Ellena in Torino until 1967 when Marazzi in Milano took over. The chassis were all produced by Marchesi who also produced many Ferrari chassis. A total of 104 chassis were constructed allowing homologation, which required 100 examples, to be completed, but less cars were built, somewhere around 95, before production was stopped in 1967. Even rarer Six Spiders were also built.
