The Ferrari Roma, From Italy With Amore

The new Ferrari Roma invokes the Italian capital lifestyle of the 1950s and 60s. The sleek design, with features that combine the classic quality of the carmaker with a more modern look, is the latest addition from the “Prancing Horse”.  This mid-front-engined 2+ coupé was revealed to the world earlier this month, bringing back “La Dolce Vita” of mid-20th century Italy.

Below it all sits the powerful revving of Ferrari’s motor engine.

A minimalist stance was taken for the exterior of the Ferrari Roma. Engine cooling takes place with perforations that are placed only where required. On the front, each of the two LED headlights is bisected by a horizontal light strip, a tribute to the legendary Ferrari Monza SPs.

The Ferrari Roma has a V8 turbo engine, with 620 CV at 7,500 RPM. The V8 has won the International Engine of the Year award four years in a row. The car’s 8-speed dual-clutch gearbox (first introduced on the SF90 Stradale) helps to reduce fuel consumption and emissions; the shifts are faster, and the car is more in-tune with the driver’s touch on the open road and in the city.

A new version of the Dual Cockpit concept is featured in the interior. The natural cohabiting of the driver and passenger seats features almost symmetrical structure between the two. The passenger has access to the functions of the car and feels part of the driving experience.

Like any and all Ferrari vehicles, the Ferrari Roma has the power of acceleration. It goes from 0-100 KM/H in 3.4 seconds; from 0-200 KM/H in 9.3 seconds; and it tops out at a maximum speed of 320 KM/H.
