2023 Ferrari Roma: Review, Pricing, and Specs

Overview

The Roma embodies what a Ferrari grand-touring car should be. With a beautifully manicured exterior, a powerful engine and some practicality, it’s a well-rounded 2 + 2 coupe that lives up to its hefty price tag in terms of performance, exclusivity and sexiness. With 612 Modenese horsepower from its turbocharged 3.9-liter V-8 engine, you know acceleration is quick, and the ride-handling balance offers both relative comfort at cruise and sharp responses when you’re on a twisty road or a race track. It’s not as hard-core as other mid-engine Ferrari sports cars like the SF90 or F8 Tributo, but the front-engined Roma offers a distinct personality compared to other GT cars like the Bentley Continental GT or Aston Martin DB11.

What’s new for 2023?

Ferrari hasn’t announced any changes to the Roma for the new model year; the coupe hasn’t received any significant updates since it first debuted for the 2021 model year.

Prices and which one to buy

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

Engine, transmission and performance

Under the Roma’s long hood and mounted near the center of the car is a turbocharged 3.9-liter V-8 that produces 612 horsepower and 561 pound-feet of torque. It is mated to an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission (DCT) that on the even more exotic Ferrari SF90 Stradale. While we had the opportunity to get behind the wheel of the Roma, we didn’t have a chance to test its performance on the track. Still, our drive taught us that this Ferrari can be enjoyed both during a nonchalant cruise or when being chased around winding corners. Its high-revving V-8 produces delicious sounds, and the DCT quickly adapts to requests for quick gear changes — especially when you turn the drive mode dial to Sport or Race. While its steering was light on effort, we appreciated the steering’s directness and precision.

Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG

With a powerful engine and sporty pretensions, the Roma is not fooling anyone that it will be particularly fuel efficient. The coupe is rated at 17 mpg in the city and 22 on the highway. However, we can’t evaluate its actual mpg unless we have an opportunity to run one on our 75-mph highway fuel economy route, which is part of our extensive testing regime.

Interior, comfort and cargo

The Roma’s interior, stitched together in leather and wrapped in faux suede, blends luxurious materials with a unique layout. Each front-seat passenger is enveloped by a sweeping dashboard that flows into the doors and floating center console. The driver faces a gigantic 16-inch fully digital gauge cluster that responds to haptic controls on the Roma’s button-heavy, flat-bottomed steering wheel. A couple of rear seats make it a 2+2 coupe, and the space is actually suitable for adults in short spurs as long as the front seats are properly adjusted. Unlike most other Ferrari models, the Roma has a large center section, just don’t expect the interior to be full of cube storage.

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 to more infotainment and connectivity features than some other Ferrari models. It 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-expensive sports cars, the Roma offers several advanced assists. For more information on 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 and rear cross-traffic alert
  • Adaptive cruise control available
  • Lane departure warning available

Warranty and Maintenance Cover

Of course, owning a Ferrari is very different from owning a Toyota, as you probably won’t be racking up thousands of miles a year. Therefore, his relatively short limited and driving coverages are not surprising. Still, the automaker provides long complimentary maintenance and offers extensive 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
