The idea is to view this Home Page to get all your Ferrari content from one place. Please see the thread below for more info and bug reports.

    A little while ago I stumbled on something about this car on Fchat (this forum I *think*) and messaged the poster to ask if I may have permission to use the information for the local Fiat car club magazine...
    I've just realised it was an old post and the poster hasn't been on Fchat since 2015.
    If anyone has pics and information on this car, which they would be willing to have included in our little mag, I would be very grateful to receive them. It's part of an ongoing series I include about marques which have connections to Fiat (the 1200 chassis in this case, I believe).

    Thanks in advance, kerrari (Karen - Australia)

    Most if not all ASA vehicles were bodied by Bertone with drivetrains built by Ferrari.

    Yes, but I think that's what makes the Drogo one (I'm still trying to ascertain how many were built) so unique...

    Hi all, I do not know how to message anyone on this site anymore....but I have some original early 60s memorabilia on these ASA cars including some original press photos and some auto show literature on the Coupe and the Roll Bar. If someone is interested please feel free to email me: provalimited@gmail.com thanks

    A guy showed up with one in dark grey at the Woodland Hills Super-car Sunday, inherited, but he knew what he had. We had a very nice conversation. That engine is like a third of a 250GT.

    In 2010 this car was parked. as you see from the pictures below, on the pavement/sidewalk in a small village just outside Luzerne, Switzerland.

    ASA was a name I had not come across but clearly someone had taken the trouble to put together a very pretty little car.

    There was no sign of a driver or owner around so there's no further information, I'm afraid.

    I post the pictures for comparison, and perhaps to enjoy too...
