Description:

The green livery complements perfectly the restrained and concise styling of this little coupé, and the biscuit colored upholstery is impeccable. The compact interior has a sporty feel worthy of a big GT car, with its three-spoke wooden steering wheel and dashboard boasting six instruments positioned neatly in front of the driver.

The engine is in fact a “slice” of the V12 engine of a 250 GT, four cylinders that produces 87 HP at 7000 RPM, and as the car only weighs 780 KG it is capable of 190 KM/h.

It was to Sicily, and more precisely to the town of Catania, that this ASA 1000 GT was delivered new, to Francesco Biondi. In 2004, it passed into the hands of Aldo Cigognini, none other than the President of the International ASA register, the only recognized club for the marque.

A passionate ASA enthusiast, he worked for a long time for the De Nora family, the family who created the brand Autocostruzioni Società per Azioni, ASA, to produce the Bertone 1000, a model derived from the Ferrarina 854 developped by Ferrari.

As an engineer, Mr Cigognini was closely involved in the amazing ASA adventure, knowing all key personalities. As head of the club, he has regularly helped marque enthusiasts in the research and restoration of their cars. He was therefore extremely well qualified to restore his own car, seeking out the best craftsmen in Milan to carry out a restoration that approached perfection.

The result is splendid, with not the slightest detail left to chance, right down to period accessories such at the boot-straps holding the jack in place and the SNAP exhaust tips. The current owner, the engine was completely redone in 2018, at great cost with an invoice of 32.000 EUR in the file.
