Currently, GTs make up about a third of the company's business, but the financial news service reports that Ferrari expects that figure to rise to 40 percent by 2022. Of course, Italy's capital doesn't have a turbocharged V8 engine to play with. The 3.9-litre twin-turbo V8 from the Portofino has been pumped up from 600hp to 620hp, although torque remains the same at 760Nm. The beefy powerhouse produces 611 hp and 561 lb-ft of torque, pushing the auto from 0-to-60 miles per hour in just 3.3 seconds and a top speed of 199 miles per hour.
0-124 miles per hour, meanwhile, clocks in at a similarly-impressive 9.3 seconds. Top speed, meanwhile, is listed as "more than" 320 km/h. The engine has been juiced up by 19bhp to 611bhp at 7500rpm, it uses the new eight-speed DCT gearbox from the SF90 Stradale and the interior is entirely new. It's a good looking interior; we just want to know more about it. That means two people can ride in comfort and style, and if it's absolutely unavoidable, you'll be able to shoehorn two more hapless souls into the back with the aid of some Crisco and one of those white-gloved fellows they hire to stuff people into trains in Japan.
Ferrari calls the Roma's design "timeless", citing it as a "contemporary representation of the carefree, pleasurable way of life that characterised Rome in the 1950s and '60s". There are hints of other automakers in there, too: a little BMW Z8 from some angles, along with some Aston Martin from others. Certainly, the cabin is focused on the two main seats, and the dashboard isn't short on technology. As well as digital instrumentation for the driver and a touchscreen in the center console, there's a third display integrated into the dashboard ahead of the passenger.
That offers individual access to the HVAC controls, along with multimedia and navigation. Well, unlike the more performance-focussed models that comprise the majority of its range, the Roma is created to be a daily driver, offering "understated luxury" to owners looking to use their cars on a more regular basis. "We know that in the market there are lots of people who'd like to drive a Ferrari but they are a bit afraid of driving a Ferrari or driving a sports auto". That probably means we can't afford one, but it won't stop me wishing.
