Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa have one of the coolest jobs in the world. Not only to they race Formula One cars for a living – at Ferrari, no less – but the two also get paid millions by the bucket to do it.

But if there’s one perk that really emphasizes just how good these two racers have it, it’s that they receive cars as gifts as if they were free pens and cup holders.

So it doesn’t really surprise us to find out that both Alonso and Massa were each given their own Ferrari Abarth 695 Tributo Ferrari. Just like that, they get their hands on a limited edition Abarth because they’re high-profile employees of the Fiat-owned Ferrari brand.

Like we said, we’re not shocked by of this. Jealous? You have no idea. But shocked? Not really.

While the special edition Abarth is nowhere in the price range of a Prancing Horse-badged Ferrari, it’s still cool enough to drive around town, especially since it comes with a boatload of unique features, including enough carbon fiber on the bodywork, 17-inch Corsa Grey alloy wheels, and Sabelt bucket seats. And that’s on top of the 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine that produces somewhere around 180 horsepower.

Most of us would have to pay around $50,000 for this car. Alonso and Massa get it for free. Then again, those two aren’t exactly what you’d call ‘most people’.
