Lot #411 - The asa engine was developed by enzo ferrari as a possible powerplant for a production car; however, ferrari had limited production facilities and sold off the rights to the car to a wealthy, electro chemical manufacturer in modena. Driver lorenzo bandini, together with a couple of ferrrari engineers were hired to develop the car. Ferrari supplied the engines but the balance of the car was outsourced. The transmission is a 4-speed with overdrive unit built in england for sunbeam. The rear-end was a salsbury unit used on the morgan 4/4 and later on the lotus elan. The 1,000cc engine is reported to produce about 100 horsepower. The car is well-appointed with a very attractive bertone body. The bizzarrini designed tube-frame is a scaled down copy of the ferrari gto of that era. The car is a pleasure to drive on freeways and keeps up easily with modern traffic. The car had a complete nut and bolt restoration finished in 1998 and has been driven to monterey for the concourso italiano on two separate occasions. The body and paint-work was done by mike regalia of the nethercutt museum and the engine was assembled by peters and betz. As of now, only about 57 cars are accounted for throughout the world out of a possible production of 130 cars between 1962 and 1965. The car comes with all restoration records and books and tools.
