It has lines reminiscent of the excellent Ferrari Gran Turismo legends of the 50s and 60s with dips and curves as exciting as Sophia Loren in a tight dress. “It” is the new 2+2 coupe 2021 Ferrari Roma, and it is not just a pretty face. This ride packs near supercar qualities thanks to a monster power plant, dual-clutch transmission, and a host of motorsport technology.
The 2021 Ferrari Roma is the kind of special ride where you can strap on a helmet and head for the track or dress in jeans and go for a comfortable, stress-free 10-hour road trip. And at a base price of $222,690, it is a stone-cold bargain compared to the rest of the Prancing Pony stable.
It is a Ferrari, so you expect it to be drop-dead gorgeous. And the Roma doesn’t disappoint. But, like Ferraris of the past, the 2021 Ferrari Roma design is not so much an exercise in automotive aerodynamics as it is automotive art. A sleek front end with cat-eye headlights, body-colored grille and, an aggressive splitter leads to a sloping hood with bumps in all the right places. The sides are slippery sleek and, sculpted, leading to a rear-end with muscular haunches, razor-edge slit taillights, and dual exhaust. A sloping roofline with a massive windshield and rear window finishes the fastback appearance.
It looks hot and has a top speed of 199 mph. Ready for more?
