ASA 1965

1000 GT Coupé
wb: 2200 mm R4 dohc
1032 cc
91 bhp


The company ASA in Milan, which belongs to the group of the major industrialist de Nora, is offering the 1000 GT constructed for Ferrari. Although the small coupe is nice to look at, and its mechanics is without question a masterpiece, but the small, high perfomance engine doesn't appeal to buyers. In addition, the car costs as much as, for example, an Alfa Romeo 1600 SS Coupe and the ASA is also a little-known brand.

Official competition began in 1965 with two cars entered in the Targa Florio, with 1070cc engines and one car with a fibreglass body. Other competitions that year saw the GTC reappear alongside more 1000GT Coupés. At the Paris Motorshow of 1965 the ASA 411 Berlinetta was revealed, being a 1000GT with an aluminium body, a 1092cc engine (104bhp @ 7,500rpm) and new headlights. Four examples were built.
