The Ferrari Roma is a grand touring sports car created by Ferrari.
- Text originally from the Ferrari Roma's Wikipedia page.
The design language that inspired the Ferrari Roma is intended to showcase La Nuova Dolce Vita, Italian for the "pleasurable way of life,” a theme that graced Italy's capital in the 1950s and 60s. In that sense, the vehicle embodies a unique departure from the styling language of all current Ferrari road cars. It strives to achieve a balance of modern ultra-high performance, cutting edge design and timeless elegance.
The overall exterior is reminiscent of the 250 GTO racing car, and the 250 GT Lusso and 250 GT 2+2 grand touring cars. The model also shares deep roots with the 612 Scaglietti. The front of the car draws inspiration from the SF90 Stradale flagship sports car while the side profile of the car is reminiscent of the 812 Superfast. Significant design features include a body coloured grille, flush door handles, slim LED lights at the front and rear, a deep chin spoiler and an active rear wing that sits flush at speeds under 100 kph.
The interior is focused on the dual cockpit theme, featuring separate driver and passenger cells. It is described as a "2+" interior by Ferrari with a small backseat area. The dashboard features digital instrumentation (a 16.0-inch wrap-around touch screen) and a multi-function steering wheel (both shared with the SF90 Stradale) for the driver. The trim piece running through the centre of the interior separates the driver and the passenger and is integrated seamlessly into the dashboard. A centrally mounted 8.4-inch portrait touch screen controls most of the car's functions. A third horizontal touchscreen can be integrated into the dashboard on the passenger side of the cockpit. This display allows the passenger access to the HVAC controls along with multimedia and navigation controls. The passenger can also view the performance metrics of the car. This third touchscreen emphasizes the passenger’s role as navigator and co-pilot. A newly designed key allows the driver to open the doors of the car by the push of a button near the flush door handles of the car.
