The Ascari A10 is an automobile prototype by the British company Ascari Cars that was conceived by a Dutch billionaire. It is a road-going evolution of the KZ1-R GT race car currently contesting the Spanish GT Championship, with both cars penned by ex-Formula One designer Paul Brown. It is the third road car produced by the company, after the Ecosse and the KZ1, with the name A10 intended to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the company.

The A10 features a 5.0 L BMW V8 engine producing 625 bhp (466 kW), delivered via a six speed sequential manual gearbox, with a regular H-pattern manual transmission available as an option. The A10 shares the same basic carbon fibre chassis as the KZ1, with all-new bodywork and racing-derived suspension. Despite the addition of an FIA-spec roll cage and the fire-suppression system, the removal of soundproofing and such luxuries as air conditioning and a stereo system contributes to the A10's relatively light weight of 1280 kg (approximately 2800 lb). Ascari claims that the A10 is capable of a top speed of 220 mph (354 km/h) and a 0-60 mph (97 km/h) acceleration time of 2.8 seconds.

The company plans to hand-assemble 50 A10s at its Banbury, England assembly plant, at a price of approximately £350,000 (US$695,000) each.

On the December 9th 2007 episode of Top Gear, the A10 set what was the fastest 'Power Lap' time around the Top Gear test track, posting a time of 1:17.3 - 0.3 seconds faster than the previous fastest car, the Koenigsegg CCX. Reviewing it during the same episode, Jeremy Clarkson described it as "A staggering car ... like a Koenigsegg but a million times more manageable." Praising the car's handling in his column in the Sunday Times, Clarkson stated "All car makers should be forced, by law, to drive an A10 so they can see what they’re aiming for."
