Ferrari Roma Review Highlights

October 29th, 2021 by

The Roma is a statement: an impeccably designed supercar that pays homage to Ferrari grand tourers of the past while offering thoroughly modern performance on the road and the track. It’s one of the most attractive vehicles to hit the market in recent memory, it has the specifications to keep up on the track, and it’s supremely comfortable — what more could you want? Clearly the critics writing Ferrari Roma reviews agree that this GT is a massive success — just take a look at what they’re saying.

Car and Driver’s Ferrari Roma Review

Car and Driver notes immediately that “the stunning Roma coupe brings new levels of elegance, luxury, and technology to a front-engine Ferrari grand tourer.”

Car and Driver reserves particular praise for the Roma’s performance at both moderate and high speeds. The review notes that, “Driven moderately, the Roma is a superb cruiser that doesn’t really tempt the driver to hunt down and pass every other car on the road,” but adds that, “When you do decide to drive fast, the Roma turns into a serious, extremely powerful sports car.” They note that acceleration is smooth, fast, and thrilling, with a top speed befitting Ferrari’s best. More importantly, it drives like a dream, with “agile yet ultimately manageable handling” and “steering [that] manages to convey the feedback that has gone missing in many modern cars.”

In other words, the Roma harnesses the full power of its twin-turbo 3.9L V8 engine without ever overwhelming the driver.

Motor Trend’s Ferrari Roma Review

Motor Trend’s Ferrari Roma road test led them to a succinct conclusion: “this Ferrari GT is in every way a thoroughly modern interpretation of a classic automotive concept, cleverly engineered and superbly executed.”

In addition to praising its performance and comfort features, Motor Trend’s take on the Roma praises its design, both in terms of aesthetics and aerodynamic performance. In particular, the review praises the Roma’s vortex generators and its active spoiler, which has three settings: Low Drag, Medium Downforce, and High Downforce. The spoiler’s settings are influenced by two things: the car’s speed and its manettino settings.

Ultimately, though, Motor Trend leaves us with this: “The 2021 Ferrari Roma is a fast and glamorous GT, thoroughly engaging to drive, whether it be mooching down to the coffee shop or charging up a mountain pass. But it’s also a Ferrari you can genuinely use every day, with all the comfort and connectivity you need and a seven-year maintenance program included in the price.”

Top Gear’s Ferrari Roma Review

Top Gear declares that “the Roma represents a renaissance for a Ferrari that embodies understated luxury rather than shrieking its potential from terracotta-clad rooftops, that posits elegance ahead of razor-sharp handling smarts.” But that’s not all they had to say:

  • On the Roma’s design: “the Roma is a progressive looking, beautifully proportioned car.”
  • On the Roma’s performance: “a deeply satisfying car to drive, both quickly… and not-so-quickly, with wonderfully linear steering, fantastic composure, and terrific brakes.”
  • On the Roma’s interior: “The cabin itself has a nice ebb and flow to it, and is meant to involve the passenger more in the experience…. It’s a lovely place to sit, no question.”
