Here’s everything that we have covered about the Roma supercar. Check what’s all exciting in the Ferrari Roma and know about its features, drive & performance, interior and exterior highlights, prices, trims and more.
The Ferrari Roma is an inch different from the rest of the Ferraris. This new lady (that’s what ‘Roma’ means – a girl’s name with Italian origins), unlike other Ferraris, doesn’t include any numerological term in its name, and has a hint of grand touring credentials in its overall package.
Launched at Rs. 3.76 crore (ex-showroom, India), the new Ferrari Roma now holds the candle of being the most affordable ‘horse’ from Ferrari’s stable of ‘prancing horses’ in India.
Here are the five major highlights of the Ferrari Roma:
2021 Ferrari Roma: Exterior
The new Ferrari Roma, like all the other current generation Ferraris, has a super curvaceous and aerodynamic design with a low slung stance to it. However, unlike its other siblings, the Roma doesn’t get any big vents or wings around its exterior. The bulges on the sides of the front bonnet and haunches over rear wheel arches do give it a powerful stance. The car also gets gloss black finished front and rear bumper skirts, which are there on the sides as well.
The other major highlights of the exterior design of the Ferrari Roma include body colored ‘cheese-grater’ grille and slot like slim LED quad tail lights. At the back, the Roma comes with an electronic spoiler and quad-exhaust outlets.
There are many special bits in the cabin of the Ferrari Roma, which is finished in an all-black theme with contrasting yellow linings across the dashboard. This yellow lining extends well on the door panels as well as center console too.
The Roma gets an all new multi-functional steering wheel, which is different from that of other Ferraris, and comes with capacitive touch buttons for engine start-stop and toggle between various modes and info in the instrument console. The steering wheel also comes with turn indicators and roller buttons for headlamps and wipers.
Other major highlights of the cabin of the Ferrari Roma include a 16-inch full TFT instrument console vertically aligned and centrally placed 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system which incorporates climate control buttons as well, information display screen above glove box, sports seats and center console with unique layout for switches of gearbox modes and launch control. With a boot space of 272 liters and a four seater cabin (though rear seats are best suited only for kids), the Roma can be used as an everyday car as well.
Powertrain and Performance
At the heart of the Ferrari Roma sits a 3.9-liter twin turbocharged V8 petrol engine, which makes healthy maximum power and torque outputs of 620 bhp and 720 Nm respectively. The engine is mated to an 8-speed dual clutch automatic gearbox, and makes the car capable of hitting 100 kmph mark from standstill in just 3.4 seconds and 200 kmph mark in 9.8 seconds.
Like all the other current generation Ferraris, the Ferrari Roma too comes equipped with traditional ‘manettino’ switch, through which one can select between five different drive modes (normal, wet, comfort, sport, race), side slip control, Ferrari dynamic enhancer, 360-degree camera, paddle shifters, electronic differential control (e-diff) and adjustable traction control (F1-trac).
Price and Variants
The Ferrari Roma has been made available in a single variant which has been priced at Rs. 3.76 crore. Off course, there are a number of customization and personalization options for the Roma as well. The Ferrari Roma is a special ‘grand touring’ sports car which is priced on the lines of other sports car offerings such as Lamborghini Huracan Evo, McLaren GT, Aston Martin DB11, Bentley Continental GT, Lexus LC 500h and Jaguar F-Type.
