The ASA was an Italian automobile created by Giotto Bizzarrini and manufactured by the Bizzarrini company in Milan (in a factory owned by the De Nora Electrochemical Group) from 1962 to 1969.

This small, high-efficiency "dream car" featured an OHC 1032 cc four-cylinder engine designed by Enzo Ferrari, whence the nickname, widely used by the press, of Ferrarina for the ASA Mille.

A racing version of the 1000 GT Coupe had 1092 cc and 95 bhp (70 kW); later they featured 105 bhp (78 kW). Only a few of the cars were made, but they had a good deal of success at Italian sporting events.

A few larger four- and six-cylinder vehicles were individually built to order; almost all were prototypes. All had fiberglass bodywork.
