5/1/20 O&A NYC AUTOMOBILE: The 2020 Ferrari Roma

Bellissimo! Magnifico! Stupendo! All of these exclamatory Italian adjectives apply to the positively beautiful Ferrari Roma. The shapely coupe is the latest model to come out of the company’s Maranello headquarters and named after the country’s capital—Rome.

While its sheetmetal recalls Ferraris from the 50s and 60s, the grand tourer also hides serious performance hardware and cutting-edge technology. A 611-hp turbocharged V-8 is at its heart and specifically tuned to make beautiful music. Likewise, its lightweight components and myriad dynamic systems aim to make the Prancing Horse badge proud.

Moving inward, the cabin lets go of some of the driver-focused appeal to create a sense of two spaces: one for the driver and one for the passenger. There was a goal to almost make the passenger more of a co-pilot, rather than just someone along for the ride. In another nod to the past, some of the driver controls reside on a metal plate in the center console — a clever reference to the gated manual transmissions of the past.
