MILAN (Reuters) – Ferrari is set to roll out the Roma, a record fifth new model this year for the ‘Prancing Horse’, as it expands its stable to help sustain its profit and share price growth.
The new grand tourer (GT) will make its debut on Thursday in Italy’s capital in an event inspired by Federico Fellini’s “La Dolce Vita”.

GTs are more comfortable on long journeys than high-performance sports cars and models from the 1960s, some seating four, are among the most popular at auctions and among Ferrari enthusiasts. Ferrari has said previously that about 40% of its total sales could come from GT models by 2022, up from 32% now.
The Roma will be a 2+ coupé, meaning it has two small rear-seats, Ferrari said on Wednesday, without disclosing its price.

“With its distinctive flair and style, the car is a contemporary representation of the carefree, pleasurable way of life that characterised Rome in the 1950s and 1960s,” the Italian luxury carmaker added.
It will feature a 620-horsepower, 3.85 liter eight cylinder mid-front mounted engine.
