The Ferrari Roma is legally available before options at a price of Rs 3.61 crore in India (ex-showroom, India). The Roma was unveiled at the end of 2019 and is a front-engined, rear-wheel – drive sportscar with a 2 + 2 seat configuration and the latest design language of Ferrari, both on the exterior as well as inside.
The Roma is definitely one of the prettiest cars to come out of Ferrari for a while in terms of styling and it features a design style that Enzo Ferrari must have approved of. The new Ferrari Roma gets a long bonnet and a small, stubby boot – a very traditionally GT style – without any large vents or wide wings to support downforce. Ferrari suggests that the Roma is inspired by the likes of the 250 GT Lusso and the GTE 2 + 2, but we agree that the likes of the 365 GTC/4 are a more fitting muse, given the haunches on the front wheels, the power hump on the bonnet and the manner in which the front grille was made.
The Roma also get sleek LED headlamps with integrated DRLs in accordance with the modern language of Ferrari’s styling. The Roma sports a quad-exhaust system and four tail-lamps inset into the frame at the rear, along with an electrical spoiler integrated into the tailgate.
The Ferrari Roma are all-new on the inside too. And while Ferrari can say a 2 + 2 configuration, the rear seats only fit younger kids. Now the dashboard is angled to cocoon both the driver and the passenger, and the centre console has an 8.4-inch tablet-style touchscreen infotainment panel. There is also a curved 16-inch instrument cluster and a new steering wheel with capacitive touch buttons which make the experience even more interactive.
The Ferrari Roma gets the same 3.9-liter, twin-turbocharged V8 award-winning engine under the hood that we see in a number of Ferrari vehicles. Ferrari has offered the Roma 620hp and 760Nm of torque while the engine is capable of producing even more. The Roma engine is also mated to the new dual-clutch 8-speed gearbox that originally debuted on the SF90 Stradale. The Roma achieves 0-100kph in 3.4sec and starts at a maximum speed of 320 km/h.
