Here's how we would spec ours.
The Ferrari Roma was one of five new models the Italian automaker debuted last year. Think of it as Ferrari's answer to the Aston Martin DB11. And powering the front-engined grand tourer is the same 3.9-liter twin-turbo V8 you get in the Ferrari Portofino that produces 612 horsepower and 560 lb-ft of torque, which is sent to the rear wheels through an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission. With this setup, the Ferrari Roma will rocket from 0-62 mph in 3.4 seconds.
With its elegant proportions, the Roma is arguably one of Ferrari's best-looking models in a long time. And now you can stare at it for hours because the online configurator is now live, allowing you to build your dream Ferrari Roma. It's perfect timing, since we're all stuck indoors during the coronavirus pandemic lockdown.
While most manufacturer configurations showcase the car against a static background, Ferrari provides a 360 degree view of the Roma out on the road. You can also view a 360-degree view of the luxurious interior.
Booting up the configurator gives you a wide range of solid, metallic, historical, and special exterior paint finishes to choose from. We opted for a sleek Blu Roma finish. You can also add exterior carbon elements, special forged wheels, and aluminum, black, blue, red, or yellow brake calipers. Naturally, we added blue calipers to complement the exterior. For the tailpipes, the Roma can be equipped with standard, sport, or black ceramic exhaust pipes.
Inside, we opted for a Blu Medio interior with diamond stitching seats. We also spruced up the cabin with an optional carbon fiber interior upgrade and added blue stitching and a passenger display. For added style, you can even add an aluminum footrest for the driver and passenger.
While the configurator gives us an insight into the comprehensive range of options available for the Ferrari Roma, pricing details are still being kept under wraps. We're expecting Ferrari's Aston Martin DB11 to cost more than $215,000, since it will be positioned above the Portofino, but adding all the optional extras in our fully loaded example will no doubt bump up the cost considerably.
Ferrari has halted production in response to the covid-19 pandemic, but plans to resume operations on May 3, 2020.
