The only links I found to this car, show exactly the shot you just posted. (and one reference to a race in 1968 in Mugello)
So what is it? related to the original ATS outfit? A predecessor of the German F1 team from the eighties? (unlikely that). A renamed Abarth Spider?

I'm afraid I don't know at all. I found it amongst a bunch of other Targa Florio pics without any further information.

EDIT Found something

The formula one program continued until 1969.

There were two different ATS-brands in the history, as Henk already mentioned.

1) the italian ATS, built by former Ferrari-engineers which were fired by Enzo after a disagreement between him and his chief-engineer. They built the 2500GT roadcar, this racecar and a Formula 1 car, which wasn't very good. Brand was closed really soon after.


2) the Formula 1 team of german alloy-wheel-manufacturer ATS in the 1980s.

Nice link, but hardly more information about the "mysterious" ATS company

Bearing the info in my post, it's from the orginal ATS company, a prototype with a 1 litre Ford engine and a Fantuzzi body.

I am now seeing that added in part. I have doubts about its consistency, as the F1 programme ceased in 1964 and not in 1969. There could be a link with the Serenissima efforts (Bizzarrini involvement) from Count Volpi, but by that time the cars were never called ATS.

I somewhere have a magazine with the story of italian ATS, will have a look if I can find it. If so I will translate the main parts for everyone.
