Alonso's 458 ?

Hi all

Had the immense pleasure of visiting the Ferrari factory Friday, and while in the final assembly area, I happened to see a bianco fuji 458 with black interior , but what was intriguing was that it had “Alonso” and his logo embroidered on the headrests, his car possibly ?

When you say his logo, do you mean his signature?

I think this is his 'Logo' -- Stylized Signature.

How did the 458 look in white? Did you see it in any other colors?

Wow! Do they give the F-1 drivers a car for free? Or is it a loaner car?
After winning a bunch of champoinships, Schum got a black FXX. But by then he could afford to buy a fleet of them.

Yes F1 drivers get a 'free' car from Ferrari.

Massa has 2 Scuderia's, one in europe (IIRC its on Monaco plates) and one back in brazil. Kimi has (had?) a Scuderia too...He bought an Enzo himself.

Schumacher had had quite a few, he started with a 550 Maranello I believe, and had a few of them (including a black one), still has the FXX and presumably the Enzo, 599 and Scuderia.

a. Call your dealer where you bought your car.
b. Tell them you would like to schedule a factory tour
c. They will call FNA and get a couple dates from which you may choose
d. The VIN for the Ferrari you own must match your Name, Registration & Driver's License.
e. You are permitted one guest (must not be under 16 years old).

Have fun!
