Bertone ASA 1000 "Ferrarina", 1961 (ASA 1000 GT, 1962-1967)
Bodywork was designed by #GiorgettoGiugiaro at Bertone.
In December 1959, Ferrari tantalized the automotive world by displaying an 850cc four-cylinder engine. Using heads quite similar to those found on his V-12s, Ferrari quoted the type 854’s horsepower between 64 and 82, depending upon state of tune.

Following a successful series of bench tests, one engine was installed in a slightly modified #Fiat1200. Subsequently dubbed the Ferrarina (#littleFerrari) by the press, rumors began flying that Ferrari was going to produce an inexpensive car.

The project met stiff resistance inside Ferrari. Former sales manager Girolamo Gardini recalled the Ferrarina being a nuisance, a product out of character with the company’s elite image. Yet, with #EnzoFerrari firmly behind it, it would not die.

Ferrari hit pay dirt in 1961 when he sold the rights to produce and construct the car and engine to the owners of a large chemical-manufacturing concern in #Milan. Prominent Ferrari client Oronzio De Nora and his son Niccolo called the company #ASA (Autoconstruzioni S.A.), and the production prototype of the car was a far cry from the dowdy Ferrarina proposal.

Though she be little she be fierce! Sized up the big jumps today, even hacked around the roads. Love how brave this little muffin is!
#littleferrari went over XC fences today! Really working on getting her listening to the aids, staying straight and not rushing to the fences. That's why it's so important to go slow and celebrate the little victories!!! Thank you @hbeventing for helping me learn that!!!
