  • Highs Drop-dead gorgeous design, practical interior for a Ferrari, great at cruising or racing.
  • Lows Automatic gearbox is eager to upshift, steering effort is lighter than expected, currently no drop-top version.
  • Verdict The Roma's beautiful bodywork pays homage to Maranello's historic GT cars, and the new coupe is delightful behind the wheel, too.
By Eric Stafford


Bellissimo! Magnifico! Stupendo! All of these exclamatory Italian adjectives apply to the positively beautiful Ferrari Roma. The shapely coupe is the latest model to come out of the company's Maranello headquarters and named after the country's capital—Rome. While its sheetmetal recalls Ferraris from the 50s and 60s, the grand tourer also hides serious performance hardware and cutting-edge technology. A 612-hp turbocharged V-8 is at its heart and specifically tuned to make beautiful music. Likewise, its lightweight components and myriad dynamic systems aim to make the Prancing Horse badge proud.

What's New for 2021?

The 2021 Roma is an all-new model set to bolster the Ferrari portfolio. This gorgeous GT takes inspiration from some of the company's most influential designs and marks a return to timeless styling.

Pricing and Which One to Buy


The Roma is much too expensive for most people to afford. Of course, the starting price of any Ferrari only indicates whether you can afford to even consider one, since the personalization options and available extras can easily drive up the final bill.

Engine, Transmission, and Performance

Stuffed under the Roma's lengthy hood and mounted near the middle of the car is a turbocharged 3.9-liter V-8 that makes 612 horsepower and 561 lb-ft of torque. It pairs with an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission (a.k.a. DCT) that debuted on the even more exotic Ferrari SF90 Stradale. While we've had the opportunity to get behind the wheel of the Roma, we haven't had a chance to test its performance at the track. Still, our drive taught us that this Ferrari can be enjoyed during a nonchalant cruise or raced around winding corners. Its high-revving V-8 produces glorious sounds, and the DCT quickly adapts to requests for snappy gearchanges. While its steering was light on effort, we appreciated the helm's directness and precision.

Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG

With a powerful engine and sporty pretensions, the Roma isn't fooling anyone that it's going to be especially fuel efficient. The EPA estimates the 2021 model will earn 17 mpg in the city and 22 on the highway. However, we can't evaluate its real-world mpg unless we have an opportunity to run one on our 75-mph highway fuel-economy route, which is part of our extensive testing regimen.

Interior, Comfort, and Cargo

Stitched together with leather and swathed in faux-suede, the Roma's interior mixes upscale materials with a unique layout. Each front-seat passenger is cocooned by a sweeping dashboard that flows into the doors and floating center console. The driver faces a giant 16-inch fully digital gauge cluster that responds to haptic controls on the Roma's button-heavy, flat-bottom steering wheel. A pair of rear seats make it a 2+2 coupe, and the space is actually suitable for adults in short spurts as long the front seats are properly adjusted. Unlike most other Ferrari models, the Roma has a large center section, just don't expect its interior cubby storage to be plentiful.

Infotainment and Connectivity

Despite wearing the iconic Prancing Horse logo, the Roma is more of a grand tourer than a focused track star. As a result, it treats passengers with more infotainment and connectivity features than some other Ferrari models. This includes a vertically mounted 8.4-inch touchscreen as well as a separate screen for the front passenger.

Safety and Driver-Assistance Features

While driver-assistance technology is usually an afterthought on ultra-pricey sports cars, the Roma offers several advanced assists. For more information about the Roma's crash-test results, visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) websites. Key safety features include:

  • Available blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert
  • Available adaptive cruise control
  • Available lane-departure warning

Warranty and Maintenance Coverage

Owning a Ferrari is obviously much different than owning a Toyota, since you're not likely to rack up thousands of miles a year. That's why its relatively short limited and powertrain coverages are not surprising. Still, the automaker provides lengthy complimentary maintenance and offers extended warranty plans.

  • Limited warranty covers three years and unlimited miles
  • Powertrain warranty covers three years and unlimited miles
  • Complimentary maintenance is covered for seven years and unlimited miles
