Alessandro Ballan gifted himself a Ferrari F430 for his win in the World Championships one week ago. The Italian, 28, confirmed to Cyclingnews the purchase of the car made by the famed car producer of Modena, Italy.

He purchased a Ferrari F430 with dark grey exterior and red leather interior. Estimated cost on the F430 Coupe is €137,700.

Ballan won the World Championships in Varese, Italy, thanks to strong teamwork. In the last lap the Italian team had three men in the escape group – Ballan, Damiano Cunego and Davide Rebellin. Ballan attacked out of this group with three kilometres remaining and won solo. His teammate, Cunego, took second ahead of Denmark's Matti Breschel.
