Bangkokians, are you ready to witness the roaring engines of the a ’60s Roman luxury sports car in contemporary style?

Cavallino Motors has unveiled the Ferrari Roma for the first time in Thailand last week via a live video streaming on their Facebook page. In true form with a new normal and social distancing practices, it’s the first time for an unveil of this kind, and whilst definitely a little unusual at first, the new car definitely provides plenty to admire.

La Nuova Dolce Vita

Embracing the “La Nuova Dolce Vita” concept, the Ferrari Roma pleases the eye with an ultimate representation of its contemporary style, carefreeness, and the pleasurable way of life that boasts the vintage Roman character in the 1950s-60s. It’s wholly apt, given that ‘Roma’ quite obviously refers to the capital city of Rome.

The new sports car features a turbocharged V8 engine capable of generating as much as 620hp at 7,500rpm — all mounting up to making it the most powerful car in its class. The latest version flaunts a Variable Boost Management system for an immediate response at any speed range, and it is coupled with the new 8-speed DCT gearbox that came with the SF90 Stradale — presenting us with a smoother and more rapid shift. Whilst it’s extremely agile on the roads, it is comfortable when driven in the city’s off-and-on traffic jam, too.

The Ferrari Roma is priced at approximately THB 21,230,000 (US$674,654). Find out more on the Ferrari website.
