Ferrari Present Award to Alcoa for Aluminum Chassis

Alcoa announced today that it has received the Podio Ferrari 2005 "President's Award" in recognition of "the company's partnership with Ferrari on one of the essential components in the success of the Prancing Horse cars - the aluminum chassis."

Alcoa supplied the first-generation aluminum spaceframe for the Ferrari 360 Modena, and currently makes the aluminum spaceframes for the Ferrari 612 Scaglietti and F430. The award was presented by Ferrari Chairman Luca Cordero di Montezemolo to Alcoa Chairman and CEO Alain Belda in Maranello, Italy.

"The partnership between Ferrari and Alcoa has been a case study in technology, innovation and a shared passion for performance - from the laboratory to the production line to the road," Belda said. "Both companies have pulled on each other, pushed the other to new levels of achievement. The proof is in the success and performance of the 360 Modena, 612 Scaglietti and F430."
