2021 Ferrari Roma available in Australia – priced from $409,888 plus on-road costs

The 2021 Ferrari Roma has hit the showroom floor for Australian buyers. The latest prancing horse marks a new era for Ferrari and is the first in a new family of Grand Tourers. With COVID-19 causing delays across the European auto industry, local buyers are only now getting the chance to see the new model up close since the model was announced in late 2019. Named after the country’s capital, the Roma draws inspiration from the most legendary Ferrari front-engined GT models of the 1960s.

The silicon electrical circuits are used in a wide range of vehicle systems, including cell phone integration, heads-up displays, autonomous driving aids, and infotainment.
