    Are the aluminum frames made at the factory in Maranello, or sourced from elsewhere? Curious to know if Ferrari doesn't make them at the plant, where they buy them from?

    Some time ago they were made by Scaglietti in Modena.
    Later, Alcoa (aluminium producer) established a new plant, also in Modena, to supply Ferrari - this plant has then been acquired by the Italian company OMR (OMR is quoted as a partner by Ferrari, and Alcoa is not anymore).
    I'm not sure what the current situation exactly is, but the frames are certainly not produced in the Maranello factory.
