Ferrari’s Roma pays homage to the Italian capital

November 20, 2019

It’s a mix of old and new, of modern taking inspiration from the past.

This is the best way to describe the Ferrari Roma.

This retro inspired model from the Prancing Horse stable is not only named after the Italian capital, it takes styling inspiration from the city itself.

The minimalist design takes after how the cityscape was in the 1950s and 1960s.

Add to this, the car itself has exterior details from the likes of the Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta Lusso, 250 GT 2+2, and the Daytona.

All these are mixed with modern touches such as LED headlights, a light strip, as well as flush door handles for that clean look.

Step inside and you’ll notice something new from Ferrari.

We refer to the high center console that practically separates the driver from the front passenger.

This arrangement lets them pay close attention to the digital instrument cluster and display in front of each of them, respectively.

Even the center dash differs with its portrait-style infotainment screen.

What remains a Ferrari hallmark is what’s under the hood- a 3.9-liter twin-turbo V8 that puts out 612hp and 760Nm of torque, coursed through an 8-speed dual clutch AT.

All this allows the Roma to sprint from 0-100kph in 3.4 seconds and hit 200kph in 9.3 ticks.

So, what do you think about Ferrari’s nbew Roma?
