Introduction

What Car? says...

If you ask Ferrari what the Ferrari Roma is all about, it'll tell you 'La Nuova Dolce Vita' – the new sweet life. In other words, it harks back to the carefree pleasures of Rome in the Fifties and Sixties. 

To that end, the Roma is unlike other modern Ferraris. It doesn’t have the fussy and harsh body angles that come from designs sculpted in wind tunnels for maximum performance.

Over the next few pages of this review, we’re going to investigate that very question, rating the Ferrari Roma for performance, comfort, usability, practicality and more. We'll also compare it with the best sports car rivals.

As you'd expect, the Roma keeps glamorous company, so those rivals include the Aston Martin DB11, Bentley Continental GT and the (very tough to beat) Porsche 911.  

Remember, when you next buy a new car, we can often help you get it for the best price – although you won't find discounts of the rarified likes of the Roma. Simply search our free What Car? New Car Buying service to see if you could save money on your chosen make and model without haggling.
