Ferrari Roma Styling Analyzed By F430, FXX Designer
The Ferrari Roma became a talking point when it launched last year – mainly due to its design reminiscent of 1950s and 1960s Rome, its obvious namesake. On a more specific note, a lot of people love that this Ferrari has a minimalist approach to styling.
But what does Frank Stephenson, the very first director of Ferrari-Maserati Concept Design and Development, say about Roma? Stephenson uploaded a video to his Youtube channel to give us his ideas, which you can watch at the top of this story.
If you don’t have nearly 20 minutes to spare, let me quickly summarize it for you. Stephenson generally likes the Roma and its minimalist design. In fact, that would be an understatement as he gave Grand Touring a 9.5 out of a perfect 10, which is probably the highest score he has ever given since he started analyzing vehicle designs. on video.

Of course, the other 0.5 was corroborated by Stephenson pointing out the things he would like to change in the style. The first of these would be the grille, which he said he would like to be darker to look like an air intake. He also said he would like to see the Scuderia shield on the sides, which has been a signature on Ferrari cars.
Additionally, Stephenson would love to see Roma with round taillights instead of the horizontal approach they currently have. He also wanted to adjust the tilt of the back shoulder forward for better posture.
Of note, Stephenson wrote the Ferrari F430 and the FXX racing car during his stint with the Italian marque. If there is anyone who is credible enough to criticize Ferraris, it would be him.
