great slogan...

The Roma was designed “for people who would like to drive a sports car, or a Ferrari, but are afraid of Ferrari and sportscars,” said Ferrari Commercial Director Enrico Galliera at the car’s unveiling in Rome on Thursday. According to the AP, the price will start above $220,000 when it goes on sale next summer.

I was thinking that it looks a bit like a stretched Miata Coupe.

Looks like a mix of California and Aston Martin.

I get a very Aston vibe off of it. Ferrari's are elegant, but just enough over the top to set themselves apart. But with this car they have gone for more elegance, and that's Aston's territory for sure.

Supposed to lure people who might otherwise purchase a new 911 according to their own press.

Very Aston...

I thought this Roma looks like a modern 365GTB.

When I look at all these new mid-engine supercars I think a Countach or 246GT are actually wilder or prettier. And with all these new front engine Ferrari's I find the 365GTB has more pleasing looks.

interesting.

i'm not sure why they made it though since the Portofino is the same price with the same front engine v8 layout. you'd probably be better off buying a vantage with a Mercedes v8tt.

Aston rip off, huge miss by Ferrari and quite surprised they'd put this thing out there considering they rarely falter. I even think the California's were beautiful.

People who like Aston Martin styling but don't like inferior mechanical quality will probably like the Roma. You get Aston look with Ferrari drive train. Like the best of both world.
