2021 Ferrari Roma real-world review in the UK. It's stunning to look at but is it actually a flawed diamond? It's super quick thanks to the 620ps twin-turbo V8 but there's lots of new tech in this car, which Ferrari has never been fitted to one of their cars before and I'm afraid it might be too much, let's see..

Update: Shields are now available on the Roma (I had read they weren't) and there is another way of adjusting volume, via a rocker switch on the back of the steering wheel.

all the safety tech. bells , etc. lane departure warning lowers insurance rates because it helps avoid crashes.

If I can't have a Ferrari without that back up beeping, I don't want one. It's annoying and distracting.

That digital gauge cluster looks horribly slow, saw it on Doug Demuro's video as well. To be honest that destroys the car for me, especially because of what the Roma is trying to be.

Not a Ferrari that I personally like, and not a Ferrari that is going to age well, considering the gimmicky electronics and the interior design language ...this is going to get dated very soon. Otherwise the usual, excellent, top-notch video from the finest Gentleman out there! ;-)

It's a big fail. Ferrari ended for me when Enzo died in August 1988. He would not approve of their massive production numbers (over 10k built this year) which has destroyed the brands mystique (I see them far too often), and he certainly would not approve of this model, nor the absurd SUV abomination that's on deck. The company has totally lost touch with its original mission. Being publicly traded tends to do that

Harry, thanks for your video as it always been.. But I've just looked up the channel and haven't found any of the material on the Ferrari Lusso one.. Really curious why haven't it been captured on camera with some of your precious opinion giveaway. Again, thanks for all of your contribution to automotive enthusiasts community. It is essential.

Really don't like the look of this car but I feel it has to be seen in real life to fully appreciate it. Take all the Ferrari badges off it though and not many would pick it as a Ferrari if they had never seen it before. That is a bad thing given all past front engine GT cars have had that Ferrari look to there DNA. The dash design is a disaster and so cheap looking with that center stack. Also add the buggy or slow interface and its just really bad.

Ferrari have ruined a great looking car with great engine by stuffing it full of useless unusable and very expensive toys, this car will depreciate like no other Ferrari we have ever seen. That £220k piece of **** will be worth £120k in 18 months.

Harry on the edge a little there, bet he needed an afternoon nap. I drove the Roma, performance was superb, but I fell out with the electronic controls, the menus are unresponsive then jump several places. Also the feel of the paddles and other controls feels more Detroit than Maranello. Hopefully they get 2022 right.

Nice review Harry. 👍 Who are the UX people signing off on touch controls in modern cars? I don't want to have to faff around with a touch bar or screen to adjust the heater on a Golf, let alone a 600hp Ferrari. Nice rotary knob that I can find and operate by touch is fine. In gloves. I'm thanking my lucky stars that voice control and lane departure has off buttons in my daily driver.

What is it going to take to stop this dangerous direction all manufacturers are taking with central screens requiring gestures/swipes to operate simple controls? Intuitive ergonomic controls that had been honed over decades are being removed in favour of head-blagging menu systems just to control radio volume. It's a good job these cars get the auto braking and autonomous functions as the driver needs to divert so much attention away from the road...

No offense to you harry, but I got bored after 3 mins. Yet another Aston clone. Really wish this hyper masculine GT ‘grand theft auto max out’ aesthetic would bugger off. It’s been so done to death. If Ferrari want to hark back, they really must make their front ends far softer and more elegant/refined/classy. This sharp shark nose with intimidating eyes isn’t it AT ALL.

The roads must have been terribly greasy - I've not seen Harry concentrate that hard in one of these videos before. The interior beeps and boops would make me hate it, until it was parked again, then I would love it. Great as art, not sure about living with all that insane tech.

There was a Roma parked in the row at Goodwood next to Harry's light blue one that has the shields. Classier without the shields if you ask me. The real question is whether the plethora of electronics that seem so modern now will be supported in 20 years. My answer is not and that the cars of this generation will then be heading for the skip if not already in it. My BB is 44 years old this year there seems to be no problem to keep running. This one will not hit its 44th borthday except as a static exhibit. To emphasise the point, Aston Martin (the chaps who used to claim to make 'the car for life, sir') are no longer supporting the ECU/PTEC gubbins on the gen 1 Vanquish. The youngest gen 1 Vanquish is just 13 years old and currently if the ECU/PTEC fails you can throw away the car. Rant over.
