Ferrari (RACE) has launched the new Roma – a mid-front engined coupe. Here are the initial details of the car until it officially launches on Thursday at 1:30 CET, when more details are expected to be released.
The Roma takes from the city in Italy as Ferrari said it is a “contemporary representation of the carefree, pleasurable way of life that characterised Rome in the 1950s and ‘60s.”
The sportscar is powered by a turbocharged V8 engine that is rated 611 horsepower at 7,500 rpm. Torque rating is 760 Newton meters at 3,000 rpm. The engine is also paired with an eight-speed gearbox that is the same drivetrain featured in the SF90 Stradale model.

With a top speed of 199 mph, the Roma can hit 62 mph in 3.4 seconds, according to the automaker.
Ferrari also engineered the body of the Roma with an “elegant, pure design” as the company said it has removed all “superfluous detailing.”
A dual-cockpit design has also been integrated into the interior of the car to give the idea of space while inside.
This is the fifth car launch from Ferrari this year, CNBC reported.
Shares of Ferrari stock were down 0.61% as of 3:50 p.m. EST on Wednesday.
