After naming models after Italian cities like Maranello, Modena, and Portofino, the Ferrari Roma arrives as a two-seat coupe wearing the moniker of the nation's capital. The company says the vehicle's swoopy, minimalist design pays homage to the vibrant life of that city in the 1950s and '60s. Looking closely, the smooth shape also seems to take cues from that era's models like the 250 GT Berlinetta Lusso and 250 GT 2+2 (check them out below).
The Roma uses a version of Ferrari's 3.9-liter twin-turbo V8 that makes 612 horsepower (456 kilowatts or 620 metric horsepower) and 561 pound-feet (760 Newton-meters) in this application. Peak power arrives at 7,500 rpm, and the engine runs through an eight-speed dual-clutch gearbox.
