Ferrari Roma Spider: 612 HP With Soft Top

Which Ferrari is the Prettiest Money Can Buy?

The Ferrari Roma Spider, ultimately unveiled at Marrakesh, Morocco, resolved all queries concerning the secret vehicle expected from the sporting Horse. Indeed, it is precisely as its name implies: a topless adaptation of the enthralling Roma coupe. Simultaneously, the 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V8, allotting 612hp at 7,500 rpm and 561lb-ft of torque, stirred up unfaltering performance.

Heading out to the back axles is an eight-speed dual-clutch gearbox inspired by the SF90, although with deeper ratios plus a reserve, while the SF90 depends on its electric engine reversing. According to Ferrari, sprinting from 0 to 62 mph just takes 3.4 seconds, matching the fixed roof Roma despite the extra 185 pounds this car has. Mostly the same as the coupe’s motor, but equipped with a unique oil pump that reduces the time it needs for cold start warm ups by 70%.

Ferrari did not just settle with taking off the top of the vehicle, they dedicated extensive engineering to create the Spider. It is crafted to have a retooled variable spoiler profile with three settings which are especially designed to enhance driving while the top is down. Additionally, there is an inventive wind blocker behind the rear seating area as well as a nolder that goes 5mm on the windshield, thus forming a ‘bubble’ effect over the cabin.

Contrasting the Portofino M, which it replaces, the Ferrari Roma Spider presents a distinctive five-layer fabric soft top that can be opened in a swift 13.5 seconds, even at speeds of up to 37 mph. In our opinion, Ferrari made a smart choice by opting for a cloth canopy, rather than incorporating a foldable metal top which tends to be both bulky and aesthetically unappealing.

The interior of the cabin has remained largely similar to the standard Roma, as one would anticipate. Although the steering wheel still uses touch controls, alterations have been made in response to feedback from clients which makes it easier to identify among them through the addition of indentations. Next, the track pad located on the right also has an indent so swiping is simpler. Concluding, the start button is now highlighted for a more dramatic effect.

Motorists. look out via a significantly-sized digital dashboard, with a sizeable touchscreen positioned in the middle of the interior framework and an accessible rider display. The Roma Spider also embodies cordless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Other accommodation amenities include 18-way chairs with potential neck heaters and an opening from the cargo area through the back seating.

The pricing has not been disclosed yet, however it is poised to cost more than the starting rate of the Roma Coupe ($222,620).
