    Ferrari Roma a throwback to 1950s Rome

    It may be Ferrari's newest coupe, but the Roma has more than a hint of Aston Martin Vantage in its styling. Said to represent the carefree lifestyle of Rome in the 1950s and 1960s, the Roma shares the same platform as the entry-level Portofino.

    With a front-mounted turbocharged 3,855cc V8 mated to an eight-speed dual-clutch gearbox, the 620hp 2+2 goes from standstill to 100kmh in 3.4 seconds. If this is not impressive enough, its styling might convince James Bond to defect.
