2. ASA 1000 GT
This little Italian sports car was once considered the next big thing in the car industry when it was introduced in 1962. Called “Ferrarina” (little Ferrari), the ASA 1000 GT was exactly that since it was built on tubular chassis with lightweight body and engine designed by then Ferrari engineer Giotto Bizzarinni. It had four-wheel disc brakes, sports suspension, and nicely trimmed interior. Under the hood was 1.03-liter four cylinder with 93 HP.
However, despite the big initial interest by the customers, production stopped in 1967 after only 95 examples were built. Today, this little car is highly praised by collectors and car historians.
