    Hmmm. BRG or Abu Dhabi Blu? Got a msg that BRG may be a bit too dark to highlight Roma's curves. I initially was going to go with Abu Dhabi Blu and now I'm thinking of going back to it. I know this stuff is highly subjective, but thoughts?

    Sorry to potentially complicate this further, but I'm a scientist, it's what we do!
    Have you considered Blu Mirabeau? To my eye, it's a little bit lighter than Dhabi, which may highlight the curves as you seek?

    For what it's worth, if you like both nearly equally, Dhabi has no up charge.

    Pretty sure it’s a myth. I don’t think insurance companies are stupid enough to think that tiny rear seats will negate 600+ HP and a 200mph top speed, along with the 250ish price tag!

    I don't for the life of me see what everyone is on about with the AM comparisons! The overall shape might be similar, but I can make the same argument about my Merc AMG GT as well.

    I think the Roma is far prettier than any modern car in Aston's lineup.

    My dealer said Ferrari still start delivery Roma at fall, which is a few months away. Can someone confirm?

    Official earnings call yesterday said 'the Ferrari Roma will hit the market at the end of the year' so no real change to post #2029

    fully agree....but there are always these type of comments/ comparisons...I mean the F12/ 812 is really a corvette, right? :rolleyes:

    But that’s not what I am asking. I am asking if a Roma Spider will be developed that would eventually replace the Portofino altogether?

    The Portofino was a great looking car....until the Roma came along and made it look a little frumpy in comparison. I’d have to believe a Roma Spider would look stunning.

    About time to make a soft-top convertible Ferrari again. Been quite some time since the soft-top 430 Spider.

    Well decided to order the Roma. Who knows when it may arrive but I am excited. Kinda reminds me of my 275 GTB4. Bit of a stretch but it does.

    Great choice! In my opinion, the Roma is the 250 GT Lusso's successor. The dealer (I live in Rome, Italy) said that the first deliveries will be after the summer.

    I wish it reminded my of my Lusso, but it doesn’t :) I still ordered the car and I think it will be great, but mentioning it in the same phrase as a 275 GTB4 is sacrilege. That is one of the greatest cars ever made!

    Anyone know if the factory will work through August since they were shut down for CoVid?

    There was a post in another thread indicating that they would be working through the traditional August holiday to make up for the corona shutdown...T

    I saw the car too at a dealer (before the COVID situation) and it's far off of an Aston...and I've driven both thew Vantage and the DBS...maybe not everybody wants a "raw" in your face type of car...look at the 60's F car, they are gentlemen's cars and not poser cars....are you saying a 250 basically a DB4??

    In addition to finding ways to work through August, they are considering adding - or may have already added - shifts.

    Does anyone know if, with a new car that you specked out, you can get a picture book of your car during construction? I got one with my 599. It is called V.I.P. for Vehicle Identification Passport. Cannot remember if I paid to have this done or it just came with the car.

    I just put down a deposit for one. I love the smooth lines. Very classy looking (unlike me ). Maybe this was mentioned before in this thread, but I am getting the shields like I always do, but this car looks fantastic without them. My salesman said it is the only option he would definitely recommend because it can hurt resale without them. Any opinions on that here? Thanks
