Ferrari has launched its fifth new model for 2019 – the Ferrari Roma. The 2+ coupé is named after the Italian city as its design is a modern representation of the carefree and vibrant way of life in Rome in the 1950s and 1960s.
The design approach wraps around delivering a coupé that is elegant and minimal, with a long, sleek silhouette. The superfluous detailing has been removed, and in its place is a new radiator grille design that is subtle and clean. The LED adaptive headlights take the form of a horizontal light strip. At the back the taillights are equally innovative, while a mobile rear spoiler is integrated into the rear screen, keeping the overall design minimalistic and generating the essential downforce at high speeds at the same time.
The 3.9-litre twin-turbo V8 on the Roma is tuned to produce 612 hp and 760Nm. The mid-front-engined coupé reaches 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds and 200 km/h in 9.3 seconds and has a top speed of over 320 km/h.
The interior design also takes a new format with the creation of driver and passenger safety cells as divided by the central display. On the driver’s side, there’s the digital instrumental cluster behind the steering wheel, while the front passenger also has a small display at his front.
