The Ferrari Roma’s Engine is a Marvel

The Ferrari Roma is all about La Nuova Dolce Vita, or “the new sweet life,” and that’s obvious when you get inside of the car. What’s under the hood is also impressive: the Ferrari Roma’s engine is a piece of automotive art, and that goes beyond its impressive specifications. The ability to reach 199 mph is wonderful in such a comfortable grand tourer, but it’s only possible because of impeccable engineering — something that this front-engine, rear-wheel-drive supercar boasts in spades.

Ferrari Roma Engine Details

The Roma is powered by a turbocharged 3.9L V8 engine that channels its considerable power through an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. That power amounts to 611 hp @ 7,500 rpm and 561 lb-ft of torque @ 5,750 rpm, resulting in the ability to jump from 0 – 62 mph in 3.4 seconds and reach a top speed of 199 mph.

The engine itself boasts a storied lineage: it’s part of a family of Ferrari powertrains that have been named International Engine of the Year on multiple occasions, but even then, it has a few new tricks up its sleeve. The Roma’s engine adds new bypass valves, Variable Boost Management, and the removal of silences to give this supercar its own unique soundtrack.

Other Performance Features

The Roma’s throaty roar isn’t just bluster, though: this Prancing Horse has plenty of other performance-focused features to support the monster under the hood. It’s able to deliver near-instantaneous throttle response courtesy of its twin-scroll technology, compact turbines, a flat-plane crankshaft, and a single-piece cast exhaust. There’s also zero turbo lag. Meanwhile, the car’s Variable Boost Management keeps fuel consumption and emissions low without compromising performance — in fact, this feature creates a feeling of smooth, consistent pickup by giving the vehicle a steeper torque curve. Finally, the Roma boasts a forced induction air-intake system with water-cooled turbochargers and two air-to-air intercoolers.
