A piece of history, a return of the Italian brand’s search for the classic beauty
It has been over 50 years since Ferrari launched a front-engine, canvas-topped Spider. At the time, the 365 GTS/4, better known as the Daytona Spyder, was an instant classic and is still today one of the most beautiful cars ever made by the Cavallino Rampante.
History will judge the Roma Spider, but the ingredients are rather special: under the bonnet, a 3.9-litre V8 Turbo, 620 horsepower and 760Nm, are combined with an eight-speed dual-clutch gearbox and rear axle drive.
Maranello’s latest convertible can go to 100km/h in 3.4 seconds and has top speeds of over 320km/h.
Like the Coupé, the aesthetics of the Roma Spider symbolises, a return of the Italian brand’s search for the classic beauty of objects and a design language that, more than a mirror of its time, is openly timeless.
The soft top can be operated up to 60km/h and takes just 13.5 seconds to complete an opening or closing cycle.
Ferrari has patented a new system for the rear air deflector, offering even more passenger comfort, whilst the luxury and advanced technology of the cabin are modelled from the Coupé. La vita è bella.
