The Ferrari Roma has taken the automotive world by surprise not only due to the timing of the launch, but of how different it is to the rest of the lineup as well.
Its styling marks a major departure from what Ferrari has accustomed us in recent years. The Roma leaves the edgy, overly aggressive design behind and opts for a much more elegant and understated language that reminds of the brand’s glorious creations from the 1960s.
Sporting voluptuous surfaces, clean lines and a very long hood, the Roma could be considered a modern-day Ferrari 250 GT Lusso.
Unlike the 250 GT Lusso, however, the Roma is more entry-level than top-of-the-line. It’s expected to cost slightly over €200,000 ($220,600), making it one of the most “affordable” Ferraris alongside the Portofino. The price also makes it a competitor for the Aston Martin Vantage and McLaren GT, as well as Mercedes-AMG GT R and Porsche 911 Turbo.
Regardless of the market positioning, the Roma is a stunner and the following video presentations from Shmee150 and Top Gear clearly show it. They show Maranello’s new GT in great detail inside and out, highlighting how different it is to the rest of the range.
That goes for the interior as well, where you’ll find a 16-inch digital instrument panel, an 8.4-inch vertical central display nicely integrated into the raised center console, and even a passenger display.
