The Ferrari Roma is designed to be an easy-to-drive supercar that’s also a throwback to Prancing Horses of a previous era; the McLaren GT, meanwhile, is the British automaker’s first-ever grand tourer. Naturally, a McLaren GT vs. Ferrari Roma comparison makes sense — these are both world-class vehicles from world-class automakers, after all. And while the comparison is a close one, it’s clear that one model stands out where it counts, and the critics agree.

Engines and Performance

As with every Ferrari, the Roma offers incredible performance, but the McLaren GT is no slouch. The Roma’s 3.9L twin-turbo V8 is slightly smaller than the GT’s 4.0L twin-turbo V8, and the McLaren similarly offers slightly more horsepower (612 hp vs 611 hp) than the Roma. The close comparison ends when you get to torque, however: the McLaren GT’s 465 lb-ft is completely outclassed by the Ferrari Roma’s 561 lb-ft. Higher torque means less delay between you pressing the gas pedal and your vehicle jumping off of the line — and it’s an area where the Roma completely dominates the GT.

Interior and Amenities

While performance is the main draw for most who are looking to buy a Ferrari Roma or McLaren GT, the cabin should not be ignored. To this end, Ferrari has provided amenities that the McLaren fails to match:

  • Passenger Space: The Roma seats up to four passengers, while the GT can only accommodate two.
  • Display Screens: The Roma features an 8.4-inch central display screen, which is significantly larger than the GT’s 7-inch screen. What’s more, the Roma offers an additional 8.4-inch screen on the passenger side that gives the front passenger access to performance data as well as some of the vehicle’s systems.
  • Color Options: Finally, the Roma gives you more control over your driving environment by offering over 35 stunning color options for the interior upholstery. The GT, in stark contrast, only offers six interior color options.
