The Italian car manufacturer Autocostruzione SpA ( Societa per Azione ) - short ASA in Milan - existed from 1962 to 1967 The big goal of the small company was to build a competitive sports car that could have success on the American and European market.. Enzo Ferrari was a major developer of the car. However, he refused these cars for sale under the name of Ferrari, which is why they were sold as ASA. As the cars all had no success, the company was forced to close again in 1967.
The only model that gained some notoriety, was the ASA 1000 GT. However, this model was not successful enough.
Success in Sport
