    About this masculine/feminine thing - there are very few, if any, Ferraris that I've ever viewed as masculine. For me, Ferraris have always been ladies - sexy, beautiful, elegant, curvaceous. Even when the few that are loaded with aero, etc., and look particularly Bad Ass are presented, I see them as Hyper Sexy women flaunting themselves. As for the Roma, it's simply a very classy lady... a Sophia Loren amongst her sisters. And THAT is a WONDERFUL thing!

    As a sign if the new era, perhaps is wrong to make statements about it’s lines being either masculine or femenine; perhaps are those of a gender fluid, trans or non binary or any other tendency that I read of and respect but I’m unable to fully understand.

    Maybe masculine is a wrong word. But what I meant to say is that rest of the car has very soft feminine shapes. The nose, however, has a very sharp edge, sharper than in any other Ferrari to date. Therefore I consider it as a masculine element.

    The overall shape is like a mixture of The Chalice and The Blade.

    I love the mid-rear V8’s. I love the beastly V12’s, and I predict this beauty will be a highly sought after drive and will become an iconic model in the F-car legacy. Truly stunning car.

    In Switzerland (where I live) the Roma configurator is available since at least two months or even longer.

    I should have been clearer. The dealer configurator has been available for months. I was referring to the website configuratot which is not yet available.

    Hopefully I'll get to see her stateside soon. I suspect the launch here will be postponed a little bit if it hasn't already.

    I love the design language on this car. The only change I would make would be to have the front grill a different color than the body. Additionally it would look great if the car was lengthened with a V12 in her.

    I like a lot of the design elements, but the grill just doesn’t work for me, especially in the lighter shades where it is even more prominent.

    I think the painted grille works fine in some colors (silver) but not so much in others (white).

    Of course at Ferrari they knew that it was going to be controversial and offer other options for it, so I don´t think it´s a big issue.
