The Roma was designed by Flavio Manzoni and the Ferrari Centro Stile, and has in many ways been hailed as a return to form for the Prancing Horse’s design efforts. With a timeless design that hearkens back to Ferrari Grand Tourers of yesteryear with modern engineering and technology to propel it to the front of the pack, the Roma is a welcome addition to the Ferrari portfolio. And it’s more than just its stunning curves that have drawn attention: the Roma comes equipped with a turbocharged V8 from the same family of engines that has been named International Engine of the Year four times in a row.
Ferrari Centro Stile is the home of all of the Prancing Horse’s design-related activities. Over 100 designers and automotive engineers work together under one roof at this facility in Maranello to shape the future of automotive design. The facility itself was created by the Ferrari Design Team, which is led by Ferrari’s Head of Design, Flavio Manzoni.
In addition to being the center of Ferrari’s designs for the present and future, Centro Stile also features the Ateliers, where clients seeking to buy their own Ferrari can preview a wide range of customization options — and do so in the same facility that houses future Ferrari designs that haven’t yet been revealed.
The Ferrari Roma was designed to showcase La Nuova Dolce Vita, or “the new sweet life,” and it’s been a huge hit with the critics:
The Roma is an incredible vehicle with a design sensibility that elevates it over other cars on the road (like the Bentley Continental), and it will be sharing its platform with the upcoming Purosangue SUV.
