Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

The Ferrari Roma will cost you vastly more than less rarified rivals such as the BMW 8 Series Coupé or Porsche 911 GTS. Even in the context of its direct rivals, it’s more expensive than the Aston Martin DB11 or Bentley Continental GT V8.

As with most cars with eight cylinders, this will not be a cheap car to run, either. If you use your Roma as your daily driver, you can expect around 25mpg and CO2 emissions figures of around 255g/km – although that’s hardly the point of a V8. Besides, those numbers are similar to what you can expect from the Roma’s rivals (and better than V12-powered rivals).

Overview

The Ferrari Roma is a beautiful grand tourer that harks back to Ferraris of old. It’s faster and more capable than most cars in the class, even if key rivals are slightly easier to live. The infotainment system is troubled, but you'll forget about that on any empty road.

  • Great to drive
  • Surprisingly agreeable ride
  • Impressive performance
  • Limited rear seat space
  • Poor infotainment system
  • Too many touch-sensitive buttons
