ONLY ONLINE AUCTION
22 – 29 OCTOBER
RM Sotheby’s and Ferrari are delighted to announce their collaboration in offering one of the earliest production examples Ferrari Roma models to be delivered to North America and sold via RM Sotheby’s Online Only Platform.
The auction, which will see all proceeds benefiting the Save the Children charity, is being supported by Maroon 5 frontman and Ferrari collector Adam Levine and his wife, supermodel, and philanthropist Behati Prinsloo. Please be sure to read the entire auction description of the car itself, to learn more about its specification as well as all the particulars of purchase, delivery, and charitable contributions.
Defined by Ferrari as a mid-front-engined 2+ coupe, the new Roma was designed to invoke La Nuova Dolce Vita, recalling elegant Ferraris of yesteryear such as the 250 GT Berlinetta Lusso. With output rated at 612 brake horsepower, the Roma provides both breathtaking performance and superb comfort and can easily be used on an everyday basis. Incredibly, 70% of the components utilized on the Roma are entirely new, making for a fresh take on sporting luxury as only Ferrari can provide.
Utilizing Ferrari’s acclaimed twin-turbocharged 3.9-litre V-8 engine and the SF90 Stradale’s eight-speed dual clutch transmission, it is safe to say that the Roma guarantees best-in-class performance while still retaining the stylistic purity of its bloodline. Sprinting to 62 mph from a standstill can be achieved in just 3.4 seconds, leading to a top speed of 199 mph. Despite its supercar-caliber performance, the Roma is tractable enough to be used on a daily basis, just as happy to be driven around town or as an open-road grand tourer.
Among the very first Romas to be delivered in North America, external options include the carbon fiber front spoiler and rear diffuser, sports exhaust pipes, Magnaride suspension, 20-inch Forged Diamond rims, and active matrix LED lights. Interior options include, the carbon fiber under door covers, passenger display, aluminum driver and passenger footrests, leather headliner, foldable rear seat backrest, high-power hifi system, and Apple CarPlay. Built to U.S. specifications and finished in Bianco Italia over a Bordeaux leather interior, this Roma will be delivered to the winning bidder through the North American official Ferrari dealership of their choosing.
Proceeds of the auction will benefit Save the Children, a 501(c)(3) organization. Aiming to provide children with the opportunity to learn, protection from harm, and for a healthy start in life, Save the Children has changed the lives of over one billion children since its foundation 100 years ago. Working with children not only in the United States, but also in Africa, Asia, Europe, and South America, seeking to provide children with the proper tools to fight poverty, disease, and danger.
The opportunity to acquire an early-production slot of an all-new Ferrari model is an opportunity that does not come every day. Benefitting a worthy cause, this Roma would be an excellent addition to any collection and would surely make an excellent first Ferrari for the individual looking to be welcomed into the Ferrari family.
