The current owner has driven the ASA alongside his 250 Series Ferrari and comments, “The ASA is a proper little rocket compared to my Ferrari. Although horsepower is 40% of the V12 and the weight of the car represents about 60%, it feels quite light and sporty, helped by its short wheelbase, very direct steering and the surefooted feel of the amazing chassis.”

As one of only 90 1000 GTs built, this immaculate example is a proper Italian sports car and one of the first examples of Giugiaro’s automotive design. The car has been maintained meticulously in the Netherlands and comes complete with all documentation and invoices, plus an Italian book dedicated to this very special “Ferrarina.”
