In 2019, which is nearing the end of this year, Ferrari introduces its fifth model this year. This model is named Ferrari Roma. This name itself was taken in order to reminisce the era of the 50-60s. When viewed in terms of design, this new car from Ferrari tends to be simpler, not as aggressive as other Ferrari output cars. The platform of this car itself uses a platform from Portofino. Ferrari Roma cars are also predicted to be a challenger for Aston Martin Vantage and Mercedes-AMG GT.
Rome in the era of the 50s and 60s was often portrayed with a cheerful and pleasant impression. This is what Derrari wants to present in their new manufacturer’s sports car. This car is considered to be able to restore the concept of “La Dolce Vita” which can be interpreted as a life full of happiness. Ferrari also mentioned that they instilled beauty in the simplicity of the car body strokes. Although not exactly completely simple, because this car still uses the best V8 engine from Ferrari.
The Italian car manufacturer is already well known for their beautiful car designs. Ferrari Rome too. The design of this car seems to show that a sports car does not always have to carry an aggressive style with many holes that support the aerodynamic system. This car has a simple wavy surface and flows smoothly. The design reference itself is predicted to come from the Ferrari 250 GTO which had appeared in the 60’s, which carries a minimalist but muscular design.
Because it uses a base from Portofino, Ferrari put the mainstay engine for this car in the front of the car. For the mechanical heart, this car itself relies on a twin turbo eight-cylinder engine with a capacity of 3.9 liters which has won the International Engine of the Year title for four consecutive years. The output of the power produced by this engine is increased by 19 bhp, so this engine is claimed to be able to produce power up to 611 hp and torque reaches 760 Nm.
