Ferrari’s Latest Supercar Is A 611HP Portofino-Based V8 Twin Turbo Coupe

The Prancing Horse brand has had a pretty busy year, with four fully-fledged new released already unveiled. But, though the year is almost over, the Italian marque wasn’t quite finished. Now, they’ve unveiled their fifth performance vehicle of 2019 with the Ferrari Roma coupe.

Based on the previously-unveiled Portofino, this svelte front-engine two-door appears to be Ferrari’s answer to the Aston Martin Vantage and the Mercedes-AMG GT. With clean lines and an aerodynamic silhouette, this speedy coupe is powered by a monstrous 611hp twin-turbo 3.9L V8 — the same one that’s won the overall International Engine of the Year award four years and counting. That means, when paired with its lightweight construction, this car has a 0-62 time of just 3.4 seconds and a presumably-limited top speed just shy of 199mph. There’s still a lot of information yet to be unveiled — like what Ferrari means by calling it a 2+, rather than a 2+2 — but we’re certainly looking forward to hearing more.
