The new Ferrari Roma has landed in Australia, with pricing and details confirmed for Maranello’s new entry-level sports car.

With pricing starting at $409,888 before on-road costs, the new ‘base’ model Ferrari is pricier than the sub-$400k ask of its drop-top Portofino 'sibling', but the performance that will be available to Roma buyers is superior.

With a twin-turbo 3.9-litre V8 under the bonnet the Roma produces 456kW between 5750-7500rpm, with 760Nm available to between 3000-5750rpm.

It’s also claimed to be significantly lighter than the Portofino, a 1472kg dry weight with lightweight options ticked as opposed to the drop-top’s 1664kg.

Ferrari says the Roma will represent “the pinnacle of performance in this category” of entry-level ‘supercars’.

It’s available to be viewed (during its tour over the next six months) and subsequently purchased from Ferrari dealers in most capital cities around Australia and New Zealand: Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Adelaide, Perth, and Auckland.

Dieter Knechtel, president of Ferrari Far East and Middle East Hub, says the car will grant owners a taste of a lifestyle that is ‘uniquely Italian’.

"After much anticipation and excitement, it brings us great pleasure to present the all-new Ferrari Roma for the first time in Australia.

“Ferrari Roma reflects a uniquely Italian lifestyle, offering an extraordinary experience of understated luxury and elegance.

“This new model is truly Ferrari, perfectly balancing performance, innovation, technology, driving pleasure and design.”
