This new one-off Ferrari Roma is the best looking car you’ll see today – Robb Report

Ferrari Tailor Made Program x Cool Hunting Roma

The Ferrari Roma may be named after Italy’s capital, but a new one takes its inspiration from a country more than 6,200 miles to the east.

The brand’s Jap Program recently teamed up with the editors of Cool yacht to design a special indigo blue version of the sports car. The collaboration, which was shown on the just delivered NYC X Design 10 Anniversary Festival, is an attempt to marry the different design cultures of Italy and Japan. And based on the photos of the vehicle, that fusion really works.

The Japanese influence on the design of the unique coupé is immediately apparent. That’s because its aerodynamic body is wrapped in a vibrant coat of what Ferrari calls Indigo Metal. As the name suggests, the bold shade of blue is based on traditional Japanese indigo dyes. The Cool Hunting team came up with the idea of ​​using the color after visiting one of the country’s last remaining indigo farms in Tokushima. The striking hood is offset by a bold set of copper-plated wheels, which are inspired by traditional tea cans and kettles made from the material. The strong contrast helps to accentuate the clean lines and profile of the Roma. Ferrari may not allow modifications to the bodywork, but there is no denying that this construction looks unique.

The blue and copper motif is extended to the interior. Inside the two-door, you’ll find a fully custom trim using Sakiori fabrics, which are made from recycled vintage kimonos with the silk replaced with high-tensile nylon for enhanced durability. Sakiori is one of the world’s oldest examples of upcycling, according to the automaker. The headliner is made of indigo-dyed leather woven in a traditional Italian pattern. There are also brass accents, including contrast stitching on the seats and a polished shift grille. Finally, the dedication plate of the car is decorated with a ‘kamon’, a custom decal that indicates one’s origin in Japan.

The Roma’s drivetrain hasn’t been modified at all, and it’s easy to see why. The sports car is equipped with a twin-turbocharged 3.9-liter V-8 mated to an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission that sends 611 horses and 561 ft lbs of torque to the rear axle. Thanks to all that power, the car accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds on its way to a top speed of 299 km/h.
