    I was wondering if the majority considers the cars of the pre-war Scuderia Ferrari as Alfas or as Ferraris....

    They are definitely Alfas. Being part of Scuderia Ferrari doesn't make them Ferraris, just like Ferraris raced by NART are still Ferraris, not "NARTs"

    To be entirely correct, though, a handful of pre-war Alfa 2.3s were built by the Scuderia Ferrari -- these cars never saw Milan. They do carry Alfa badges, and "SF xx" chassis numbers rather than the normal Alfa numbers. The Scuderia Ferrari also built a pair of twin-engined Alfas, again cars which came out of Modena and not Milan.
