ASA was a small auto manufacturer based in Milan that debuted in 1962 and lasted through 1969. Their main model was this, the 1000 GT. It was designed by Giotto Bizzarrini and the body was done by Giorgetto Giugiaro of Bertone.

The engine is a 1.0-liter straight-four making 95 horsepower. The engine was actually designed by Ferrari engineers as, basically, a chopped up version of Ferrari’s Colombo V-12. There was a hotted-up version with a larger engine called the 411 GT.

Only about 90 examples of the 1000 GT were built. They are pretty and this one was sold new in Germany. The award-winning restoration was completed in 2014. This should bring between $99,000-$144,000. Click here for more info and here for more from Bonhams.

Update: Sold $146,910.
