Ferrari Roma is Here

Ferrari Roma

Ferrari recently revealed a new entry model called Roma. The exterior design of the Roma highly resembles Aston Martin’s Vantage and DB11 models. According to Ferrari, Roma is a brand new car, although the majority of its platform is based on Portofino excluding the unnecessary metal folding roof. I wouldn’t say I like the folding metal roof as they are too heavy and use too much space.

Roma is powered by a 3.9-lt V8 which is also seen in the 488, SF90, GTC4Lusso T, Portofino, F8, and Alfa Romeo Giulia (V6 version). The engine produces 620PS and is coupled with an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic. Unlike the Portofino, there are five stages on the Manettino switch, which makes the Roma a proper Ferrari.

Another beautiful thing with the Roma is the opportunity to remove all modelling and branding from the car. Ferrari focused on a clean and minimalist design for the Roma, and the removal of logos was part of this process. I would highly recommend it, and there is no point in showing everyone you have a Ferrari, and it signals a lack of self-esteem.

The clean design ended up with hidden active aerodynamic parts similar to the Porsche 911. If they don’t have any functionality, the aerodynamic parts are hidden. I love it!

The interior looks more like a Mercedes-Benz in that it has lots of screens and buttons, which I also like. Ferrari is moving towards a better driver experience through its infotainment and other electronic systems. Existing Ferrari models lack this, and they continue to feel like the gadgets have been retrofitted to a 1990s Ferrari (my opinion).

Overall, I like the Roma; it has all the Ferrari features, but nothing has been sacrificed. The engine is perfect, the design is impressive, and it represents the future of Ferrari.
