La Dolce Vita – a New Story Begins

A new chapter has begun for Ferrari. We take a look at the Ferrari Roma Spider launched earlier this year – so retro, so cool, so elegant.

The Ferrari Roma Spider

The Ferrari Roma Spider, the latest model from the Maranello marque, was presented earlier this year at the El Badi Palace in Marrakesh. This timelessly elegant, high-performance car is a contemporary take on the chic, pleasure-seeking Italian lifestyle of the 1950s and 60s – and we are just here to admire its beautiful lines and powerful engine.

This convertible iteration of the successful V8 2+ concept introduces a soft top, a feature making a noteworthy return to Ferrari's front-engined cars after 54 years.

Deploying in just 13.5 seconds at speeds up to 60 km/h, the soft top not only enhances the car's aesthetic appeal but also contributes to a more extensive boot space, showcasing thoughtful design. The introduction of a patented wind deflector seamlessly integrates comfort without compromising the car's spatial efficiency. Retaining the Ferrari Roma's dynamic characteristics, the Spider boasts a remarkable weight/power ratio, an all-aluminium chassis, and a potent 620 cv V8 engine that has been celebrated as the ‘International Engine of the Year’.

The Ferrari Roma Spider effortlessly combines ease of driving with responsiveness, positioning itself as an ideal companion for diverse journeys. Beyond its striking aesthetics, the convertible offers practical features such as a category-leading boot size, wireless connectivity, and 18-way-adjustable heated seats. Crafted by the Ferrari Styling Centre, the exterior exhibits clean lines, emphasizing the car's aerodynamic efficiency.

The sporty interiors of the Ferrari Roma Spider

Inside, the cabin follows the dual cockpit concept, creating a symmetrical layout with sculptural volumes and advanced technology, including an 8.4" central display. The powertrain, housing the acclaimed V8 turbo engine, ensures rapid response and efficient torque delivery through Variable Boost Management.

Aerodynamics play a pivotal role in the Ferrari Roma Spider's design, featuring an adaptive spoiler and vortex generators that optimize downforce. The vehicle dynamics incorporate the Side Slip Control system for precise handling, and the chassis, derived from the Ferrari Roma, guarantees exceptional rigidity with minimal weight increase.

To underscore Ferrari's commitment to quality and client service, the Roma Spider comes with a seven-year maintenance program covering regular maintenance and original spares. The Genuine Maintenance program, available globally, ensures peak performance and excellence for Ferrari owners.

In essence, the Ferrari Roma Spider combines timeless elegance with cutting-edge performance, embodying the spirit of the Italian Dolce Vita in a contemporary and exhilarating package.

Lifestyle Insider is a kind of junction point, connecting people with diverse interests that touch on the more luxurious aspects of lifestyle – fashion, design, travel, food and spirits, art, watches and jewellery, cars, yachts, and aviation, and technology. People today don’t fit into boxes and categories. In our individual ways, we are interested in diverse themes, products, and the challenges that face our world today. You will judge how well this effort of mine caters to your passions and proclivities.

Lifestyle Insider is a showcase of all that is beautiful and luxe. Behind every creation, is a designer, chef, entrepreneur, or a design maison. I have delved into my own appreciation for objetsde luxe that I have admired over the years – be it a love of fashion from the world’s top Parisian and Italian fashion maisons and their ’90s muses, or the care that goes into sari and Indian textile collections in my own family. Growing up on four continents, as the daughter of a former Indian Ambassador, I’ve seen a remarkable array of historic places and met a myriad people. My aim is to bring my world view into this website, a curation of what I find particularly stunning, unique, and newsworthy.

It’s an exciting time for brands all over the world. With change comes opportunity. With the global ‘reset’ and uncertainty on many fronts, there is a chance to write a new script. Let’s be those pioneers.

A bit about me:
A luxury and fashion journalist with 25 years of experience in publishing and magazine journalism, I have edited some of India’s top fashion and luxury magazines. I got my BA in Comparative Literature from UC Berkeley, and went on to receive my Master’s in English and French from the University of Strasbourg, France. I have also studied German and Film. I live in Gurugram, India, and look forward to once again exploring our world with a new-found freedom.
