Ferrari just blew the lid off its latest model, the front engined V-8 powerhouse called the Roma, expanding its lineup of comfortable touring rides.
So far Ferrari isn’t saying much about the features and price of the Roma, but by the looks of it, the car looks a bit like a coupe version of it’s popular Portofino convertible.
The heart of the Roma is the company’s famous 611 horsepower, twin-turbo V-8, and it’s coupled with an 8-speed gearbox, that 1st came out in the Ferrari SF90 Stradale model. It hits the 60 mph mark in 3.4 seconds.
A few days before the unveiling of the Roma, Ferrari launched a teaser picture of an Italian cafe table, with a cappuccino and a pair of designer sunglasses and the words “La Nuova Dolce Vita”, playing off director Federico Fellini’s iconic film from the 1960 about Rome called “LA Dolce Vita.”
After the launch in Rome, Ferrari said : “With its distinctive flair and style, the car is a contemporary representation of the carefree, pleasurable way of life that characterized Rome in the 1950’s and 1960’s. The Ferrari Roma offers discerning clients the finesse and refinement that brings the concept of “la Dolce Vita” right up to date.”
Ferrari is looking to expand its lineup and business, that is why the Roma is the 5th car to be launched by the Italian automaker this year.
