Ferrari Roma

Ferrari Roma
The Ferrari Roma (Type F169) is a grand touring, high
performance Italian sports car created by automobile
manufacturer Ferrari. It is a mid-size, two-door, 2+2
hardtop coupé. It has a front mid-engine, rear-wheel-drive
layout. Based on the Ferrari Portofino, the car is an ultra
high performance turbocharged V8 model placed between
the Portofino and the F8 Tributo in Ferrari's range of
sports cars. The Roma name comes directly from ancient
Roman mythology. The vehicle was christened in honor of
Italy's capital city and was originally introduced online on
November 13, 2019.[1][2] Official public unveil of the car
took place the next day in Rome.[3][4]

Kerb weight 1,570 kg (3,461 lb)
"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[5] and timeless elegance.[6]
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

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
Specifications and performance
Engine and transmission
The Roma is powered by the award-winning Ferrari type F154 engine. It is a 3.9 litres (3,855 cc),
turbocharged, 90 degree V-8, dual overhead cam (DOHC) design. The Roma's type 154BH is rated at
456 kW; 612 hp (620 PS) between 5,750 and 7,500 rpm and 761 N⋅m (561 lb⋅ft) of torque between 3,000
and 5,750 rpm.
The forced induction air intake system uses twin parallel water cooled turbochargers and two air-to-air
intercoolers. The dry sump lubrication system helps prevent oil starvation during high g-force operation.[12]
The engine is mated to the new 8-speed dual-clutch F1 transmission shared with the SF90 Stradale. This
new unit translates into more acceleration in the intermediate gears with an extended tall top gear for
motorway cruising. Ferrari says there is 15 percent more longitudinal pull in third gear when compared to
the previous generation's 7-speed unit.[13] The transaxle is equipped with an electronic differential and a
mechanical reverse gear which contrasts to the SF90's electric motor reverse. This design weighs 6 kg
(13 lb) less than the 7-speed unit used in the Portofino and is claimed to provide quicker and smoother
shifting. Much of the weight savings is due to the dry sump design and the primary alloy oil case that is
compact and wrapped tightly around the various engine components.[14]
The double wishbone, coil spring design with anti-roll bars also has an optional MagneRide dynamic shock
absorber system that provides more compact and controlled vehicle operation using magnetorheological
The Roma comes standard with Ferrari's F1-Trac traction control, side-slip control 6.0 technology,
electronic stability control (ESC), launch control (Power Start), and the Ferrari Dynamic Enhancer. It also
has a five position Manettino dial on the steering wheel allowing selection of the vehicle's driving mode
between wet, comfort, sport, race and ESC-off.
The Roma's electronic interior cockpit controls also represent a major deviation from recent Ferrari road
cars. The human-machine interface (HMI) is largely a digital touch-screen control system (using Haptic
technology) that is also shared with the SF90 Stradale. The touch-screen control extends to some functions
on the steering wheel.
Some driver assistance systems (ADAS) like front and rear radar with adaptive cruise control are also
available options to aid during long drives.
The Roma was engineered to weigh 200 kg (441 lb) less than the Portofino while being based on the same
platform. This was achieved through a more rigid body structure and the overall use of lighter parts. With
the lightweight components, the car's dry weight is 1,472 kg (3,245 lb). Its curb weight (without driver) is
1,570 kg (3,461 lb).
The published weight distribution is 50% front to 50% rear.[15] Ferrari claims that 70 percent of the parts
used on the Roma are new as compared to the Portofino.
The dynamic rear wing self activates at high speed to help the vehicle generate downforce. The wing's
three positions are low drag (0-100 kph), medium downforce (100-300 kph), and high downforce (100-300
kph cornering and braking). The maximum deployment is rated at 95 kg (209 lb) of downforce at 250 km/h
(155 mph). The rear spoiler is complemented by a pair of underbody vortex generators that create ground
effect and manage the wake of the front wheels to ensure efficient load management.[16] The vortex
generators very efficiently create downforce on the front axle with a negligible increase in drag. The
electrically activated mobile spoiler produces downforce at the rear axle to optimally balance the car.
Wheels, tires and brakes
20 inch cast aluminum wheels are standard with 20 inch forged alloy wheels as an option. Front wheel rims
are eight inches wide and rear rims are ten inches. The tires used on the Roma measure 285/35 ZR20s at
the rear and 245/35 ZR20s at the front. The model was introduced with the Ferrari-approved choice of
Pirelli, Michelin, or Bridgestone run-flat tires.
The Roma has 390mm front and 360mm rear carbon-ceramic ventilated disc brakes. The Ferrari Dynamic
Enhancer controls yaw angle by actuating the individual brake calipers of the car, a first for a Ferrari GT
model. The FDE proportionally adjusts brake pressure to one or more wheels depending on the situation.
On the Roma, it is applied only in the Race setting of the manettino. FDE is not a stability control system; it
flanks the traditional ESC to make the sideslip dynamics smoother, more predictable and controllable. This
supports the whole target of the Race position itself, which is driving pleasure and fun behind the wheel.
Exhaust system
A redesigned exhaust system uses particulate filters (similar to diesel particulate filters) for emissions
regulation. This was achieved by removing the silencers (mufflers) and adding bypass valves. It has been
engineered to retain, enhance and expand the engine's exhaust notes while reducing particle emissions.
The Roma's published top speed is > 320 km/h (199 mph). Performance figures include a 0-100 km/h
(62 mph) acceleration time of 3.4 seconds; and 0-200 km/h (124 mph) acceleration time of 9.3 seconds.
The Roma's dry weight to power ratio is a best in class 2.37 kg/cv (5.3 lb/hp).[17][18][19][20]
The Roma’s minimum height off the ground is a static 4 3/4 inches (120 mm). It’s maximum front ramp
angle is 11 degrees and the maximum rear ramp angle is 15 1/2 degrees.
The vehicle comes with 10-cubic feet of boot space in the trunk and additional storage space behind the
two front seats. An option of foldable back seat backrests expands the storage configuration to 14-cubic
feet. Keeping with the cars grand touring theme, and as with certain additional models, the Roma can be
ordered with a specially designed, multi-piece luggage set which fits into the vehicle's rear trunk effectively.
The luggage matches the interior leather.
The Roma was originally introduced with a base price of $218,670 (2020 USD). Typical final build-out
configurations could range from $270k to $310k. Ferrari estimates 70 per cent of buyers would be first-time
Ferrari customers. They stated that the Roma is targeted squarely at the Porsche 911 and Aston Martin
markets.[21] The overall design theme is "understated elegance" which is somewhat of a deviation from the
traditional Ferrari road car.
Dedication and awards
The Roma celebrated its public unveiling on November 14, 2019 during an international event at Rome's
Stadio dei Marmi (Stadium of the Marbles). In 2020 it made a guest appearance at the 150th anniversary of
the declaration of Rome as the capital of a unified Italy.[22]
The Ferrari Roma was awarded a Red Dot award in 2020 recognizing the cars inspirational design. The
Red Dot awards are among the most prestigious honors in the design industry. They aim at celebrating the
excellence and innovation in industrial design and recognizing the world's best designers. Red Dot was
quoted "by renouncing all superfluous details, the design of the Ferrari Roma achieves a formal minimalism
that characterizes the timeless elegance of this sports car."[23][24]
Auto&Design Magazine awarded the Roma the best production car design for 2020.[25] The award is
acknowledgement of the automobile industry's finest creations. The twelve person panel of international
auto journalists said the Roma reinterprets the classic lines of a Gran Turismo car and projects them into the
21st century with its sensual, evocative and cutting-edge design.[26]
The 2021 Esquire Car Awards named the Ferrari Roma as the Best Designed Car of the year. The
organization noted that the Roma is museum worthy and stated that just one walk around of this car leaves
little doubt that it will be admired for decades to come.[27]
