Ferrari Roma – Maranello’s latest front-engined GT

Ferrari has unveiled its newest GT, the Roma. Named after Italy’s iconic capital city, the Roma is mid-front engined 2+2 coupe with seating for four.

Positioned between the Portofino and 812 Superfast, the Roma is powered by a derivative of the 3.9-litre twin turbo V8 engine that first debut in the 488 GTB. In the Roma, the V8 produces 456kW of power at 5750-7500rpm, accompanied with 760Nm of torque between 3000-5750rpm.

Driving the rear wheels through an 8-speed dual clutch transmission first used in the SF90 Stradale, the grand coupe is capable of sprinting from 0 to 100km/h in just 3.4 seconds and on to 200km/h in 9.3 seconds. Top speed is rated at 320km/h.

Ferrari claims the Roma represents the pinnacle of performance in the GT segment, delivering the finesse and refinement that brings the concept of “la Dolce Vita” (the new, sweet life) right up to date.

There is no word on price at this stage, but expect the Ferrari Roma to cost about the same as its rivals, namely the Porsche 911 Turbo, Aston Martin DB11 and McLaren GT.
