Whenever a new Ferrari is unveiled, it’s an event. This time, it’s the Ferrari Roma that has the automotive industry buzzing. Ferrari released a set of images today as well as some specs, but didn’t provide other details like pricing or where it will go in the lineup.
With a wheelbase that’s identical to the Ferrari California T, the Roma is described as a “2+ coupé” which means there will four seats inside, but the rear seats are likely less than adult-friendly. That said, the interior is stunning. A fully digital instrument cluster is joined by a second digital screen in front of the passenger and a touchscreen centre console. There’s also a cupholder in there as well.
Powering the Ferrari Roma is a 3.9-litre, twin-turbo V8 paired with an 8-speed dual-clutch gearbox which can also be found in the SF90 Stradale. Total power is rated at 611 horsepower and 561 pound-feet of torque. The car will reach 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds and its top speed is rated at 198 km/h.
In its press release, Ferrari said the Roma represents the “carefree, pleasurable way of life that characterized Rome in the 1950s and ‘60s.”
