Ferrari Roma grand tourer is a new mid-front engined V8 2+ coupé
There’s a new Ferrari model in town, the Roma. The all-new 2+ coupé is mid-front engined which accounts for the long bonnet length. The 2+ description comes from the option of two small seats or a storage compartment in the rear. The Roma is powered by a version of the 3.9-litre V8 that’s also in the Portofino and the F8 Tributo.
In the Roma, the engine produces 612bhp at 5750-750orpm and 760Nm of torque at 3000-5750rpm. This is in comparison to the Portofino’s 592bhp which also produces 760Nm of torque and the F8 Tributo’s 710bhp. The Roma gets up to 100km/h in 3.4 seconds and has a top speed of 320km/h. It has upgrades which include reshaped camshafts and an engine speed sensor which is said to allow maximum revs to be increased by 5000rpm.
It has the eight-speed dual-clutch gearbox that was introduced in the SF90 Stradale. This new gearbox is more compact, is 6 kg lighter than its 7-speed predecessor, is claimed to provide improved fuel consumption. A new Euro-6d-compliant petrol particulate filter has been fitted, but Ferrari guarantees that it will “not compromise driving pleasure”.
The retro-modern design includes a bold new-style grille, sloping window, narrow head and tail lights and quad exhausts. Matrix LED headlights are an option. The active rear spoiler has three settings and deploys automatically.
The front seats are split into two separate cells with a central divider between the driver and passenger. There is also an all-new design steering wheel which houses all the main driver settings.
The Roma has Ferrari’s latest vehicle dynamic systems such as Side Slip Control, as well as the active rear wing. There are five driving modes and Ferrari Dynamic Enhancer that controls body roll by adjusting brake pressure. Also available as an option is a suite of Autonomous Driver Assistance (SAE Level 1) features: Autonomous Emergency Braking, Lane Departure warning with Traffic Sign Recognition, Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and Surround View Camera.
The Ferrari Roma is available from the base price of RM 968,000.00 (before duties, customisation options, taxes and insurance)
