    One is not sure.  The design and proportions are stellar, yet it seems somewhat derivative in to-quite-a-Ferrari sort of way and seems almost Mazda RX-7 like.  However the the performance is strong and it could be an interesting everyday vehicle.

    Re: Ferrari Roma

    Following is the Mazda RX-Vision concept from 2015.  The exterior of the Ferrari Roma looks extremely very similar to that old Mazda concept.

    Mazda’s vision is to deliver true driving pleasure that will earn its cars a position as the customer’s partner, and will enrich their motoring lives. That motivates Mazda to continually defy convention and push the boundaries, building cars that match its unique vision.

    Mazda is the only carmaker in the world to successfully bring to market and mass-produce the rotary engine. It is a symbol of the company’s tirelessly challenging spirit and, as the soul of the Mazda brand, it represents the unique and innovative technology that helped establish the brand and create a solid bond between Mazda and its customers. That is why rotary engine research and development continues today, even though there are no rotary-powered cars in the current product lineup.

    Mazda RX-VISION Rotary Sports Car Concept

    The Mazda RX-VISION rotary sports car concept introduces the next-generation SKYACTIV-R rotary engine and Mazda’s vision of the ultimate in front-engine, rear-wheel-drive sports car styling. Making its world premiere in Tokyo, the RX-VISION represents a vision of the future that harbors the soul of the Mazda brand.

    One-of-a-kind FR proportions born of KODO design and the rotary engine
    RX-VISION adopts the beautiful proportions of an FR sports car as could only be envisioned by Mazda. The styling is modern but maintains a sense of lineage and authenticity, encapsulating Mazda’s entire history of sports car design.

    A low and wide body, short overhangs and taut cabin make the model immediately recognizable as a sports car. These elements combine with the low overall height and incredibly low hood made possible by the compact and lightweight next-generation SKYACTIV-R rotary engine to create truly one-of-a-kind proportions.

    The design aim was to shave away all but the essentials and give birth to the dynamic tension and ambience of a machine that is all business. The fine craftsmanship of Mazda’s renowned clay modelers creates reflections that convey motion and thereby capture the spirit of the KODO design language without relying on character lines or other such elements. It is an elegant and highly vital form that changes expression with the slightest change of viewing angle.

    A special red chosen for the body color features both energetic brightness and depth. It helps bring out the luster and contrast between light and shadow that are present on the RX-VISION.

    Weaving some design motifs that reflect the history of Mazda sports cars into the design of the RX-VISION expresses Mazda’s unchanging passion for the sports car.

    For the interior, the design team pursued an ultimately simple yet powerful image, while fusing it with the tactile feel of handcrafted work and a sophisticated mechanical expression. Intricate instruments give the cockpit a true machine appeal, which in combination with the simple instrument panel and genuine leather trim with a saddle motif for the center tunnel create an interior atmosphere that speaks of handcrafted warmth and quality yet maintains a sense of tension.

    Mazda RX-VISION Rotary Sports Car Concept

    The next-generation SKYACTIV-R rotary engine aims toward the future
    Working to realize the ideal internal combustion engine, Mazda returned to the drawing board and built the SKYACTIV-G gasoline engine and SKYACTIV-D diesel engine from scratch.

    Even after discontinuing production of the RX-8 in 2012, Mazda continued research and development to further evolve the rotary engine. This next-generation rotary engine has been christened SKYACTIV-R, a name intended to represent the company’s firm resolve in applying the most advanced technologies and the same high aspirations that yielded SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY towards achieving a breakthrough in addressing the three key issues with rotary engines — fuel economy, emissions performance and reliability.

    Mazda will never stop challenging to deliver new rotary engines that provide its unique brand of driving pleasure.

    Re: Ferrari Roma

    At least they are back to a more coherent design after a number of designs which didn't appeal to me at all due to all the vents and fins and differences in design language between the front and the rear of the car.

    The design itself is really reminiscent of the modern Aston Martins and indeed the Mazda. Makes you wonder why Ferrari seems to be unable lately to create their own strong designs... Is that all due to the break with Pininfarina?

    Maybe...or maybe they are adapting to a new clientele and new regions? Smiley

    Re: Ferrari Roma

    I also rather like it!


    Re: Ferrari Roma

    The question is now: How much?

    I can actually see the Roma start at 195k EUR or so...maybe even slightly under 190k (the Portofino starts at 190k in Germany). Or it starts at around 220k...still cheaper than anything else at Ferrari, with the exception of the Portofino.

    Re: Ferrari Roma

    Nothing so special for the €200.000+ starting price.

    The styling gives an impression of flimsiness and fragility. The shark nose and the front spoiler are incoherent with the rest of the car.

    For the money and the type of car I'd prefer the regal Bentley GT.

    I look at the Roma as a cheaper 812 Superfast, the mid//front engine design is also interesting if it really improves driving dynamics (remains to be seen). The Bentley GT would be a gentleman's car and I am very far away from this description. Smiley

    I am sure that on your route to North Italy the Bentley will kill the Ferrari Smiley

    I must admit that Roma looks better than the 812. But this is not very hard to achieve.

    I hope it is, it would be disappointing if it isn't.

    Re: Ferrari Roma

    Ferrari describes the Roma as a 2 + meaning there are two relatively useless spaces masquerading as rear seats.  


    Re: Ferrari Roma

    yep should have called it Ferrari Gaydon indecision
