Ferrari Roma Gets New Look And F8 Tributo Levels Of Power

Tuning / Comments

DMC thinks the Roma looks too restrained.

Inspired by 1960s grand tourers, the Ferrari Roma exudes elegance, but some people think it looks too much like an Aston Martin - we're looking at you, Chris Harris. DMC clearly thinks the Roma looks too restrained because the German tuner has released a new tuning package called Fuego that adds a spate of aerodynamic components, giving the grand tourer a sportier look and more power.

At the front, DMC has fitted a front spoiler lip that attaches to the front bumper, increasing the downforce and stability at high speed to compensate for the extra power under the hood. New side skirts also attach to the stock side rocker panels, giving the Roma a lower stance when viewed from the side profile while optimizing the airflow between the front and rear wheel arches.


Other visual upgrades include a new trunk lid spoiler and a rear diffuser insert that reduces lift at the rear axle. DMC's custom Ferrari Roma rides on black five-spoke forged 21-inch and 22-inch wheels wrapped with high-performance 255/30 ZR 21 tires at the front and 315/25 ZR 22 tires at the rear. Sports springs lower the ride height of the Roma by around 1.3 inches. Overall, the upgrade give the Roma a sportier character without going too over the top.

In stock form, the Ferrari Roma isn't lacking in the power department. Its 3.9-liter twin-turbo V8 generates a respectable 611 horsepower and 561 lb-ft of torque, but DMC has extracted an extra 88 hp and 94 lb-ft of torque.


This raises the total output to 708 hp and 654 lb-ft of torque by adding a control module that recalibrates the injection and ignition mapping and upgrades the electronic boost pressure control.

In terms of power output, this puts the Roma on par with the F8 Tributo. With more power on tap, the modified Ferrari Roma will accelerate from 0-62 mph in 3.2 seconds and 0-124 mph in 8.9 seconds. Top speed also increases to over 201 mph. For comparison, the regular Roma will sprint from 0-62 mph in 3.4 seconds and top out at 199 mph. Finally, DMC can extensively customize the interior with leather and Alcantara materials in any desired color
