At first glance, you will realise that ⁠Ferrari’s breathtaking new convertible is effectively the open-top version of 2019’s Roma coupé. Featuring a 2+2 seating configuration, the Roma Spider also packs quite a powerful punch under the hood. It comes equipped with a 3.9-litre twin-turbo V8 engine that does not compromise your need for speed or power. Its dual-clutch, eight-speed gearbox is a thing of beauty, as is the wind deflector you’ll find in the rear seat backrest (Ferrari was smart to patent this).

According to Ferrari, “The new spoiler geometry has been meticulously honed to reflect the #FerrariRomaSpider’s styling and new roof line, ensuring the car is always aerodynamically balanced and able to deliver increased driving exhilaration.”

Ferrari Roma Spider: A convertible inspired by the 1950s and 60s

The USP of the Ferrari Roma Spider is undoubtedly its innovative soft top, the first to be seen on a front-engined Ferrari since 1969. Not only is this convertible roof ergonomically designed, but it’s also fast (you’ll be able to drop the roof in just 13.5 seconds!). According to Ferrari, the car’s design is a contemporary take on the pleasure-seeking Italian lifestyle of the 1950s and 60s.

With a maximum speed of 198 miles per hour, this is a sports car that doesn’t just look good, but also FEELS good.
