Ferrari has revealed an all-new model at a special event held in Italy’s capital.
The new mid-front-engined “2+ coupé” is being described by the Italian firm as “a contemporary representation of the carefree, pleasurable way of life that characterised Rome in the 1950s and ‘60s.” Hence the name “Roma”.
Its V8 powerplant, which is coupled with the new 8-speed DCT gearbox that was introduced on the SF90 Stradale, is claimed to generate 602 bhp and 591 lb-ft of torque, which helps deliver a 0-62 mph time of 3.4 seconds, and a top speed of over 199 mph.
Measuring 4656 mm long, 1974 mm wide, and 1301 mm tall, the Roma sits a little shorter and narrower than the Portofino, with which it shares certain underpinnings.
With a dry weight of 1472 kg, it’s also lighter by some 80 kg than the Portofino.
Ferrari will be revealing more details on the Roma in the coming days.
