This is our first look at a modified Ferrari Roma

By topgear, 22 July 2020

Ever since its reveal in November last year, the Ferrari Roma has been dividing opinions in comments sections all over the Internet. Sadly, we haven’t had the chance to drive Maranello’s new grand tourer yet, but that hasn’t stopped German tuner Wheelsandmore from already offering an upgrade package.

Of course, the Roma uses the same platform as the Portofino, and the 3.9-litre twin turbo V8 engine is only slightly altered to produce 620hp as standard, so presumably there’s been some parts sharing by Wheelsandmore too.

The result is a new plug-and-play ECU that ups power to a fantastic 700hp and 885Nm of torque for just €3,360. But that’s not all, there’s also a stainless-steel exhaust system that provides an extra 15hp and presumably plenty of noise once the remote-controlled flaps are opened.

The only visual upgrade is the wheels (surprise surprise), of which there are four different options in either 21- or 22-inch guises. The 21-inch ultra-concave design seriously suits the white Roma above, wouldn’t you agree?
