The All new 2024 Roma Rider, soft spot convertible designed to represent Italian life in the 50s and 60s was first displayed at the El Badi Palace in the presence of an exciting crowd and dignitaries of the Moroccan Kingdom and the car Sports industry.
The launch of the Roma Spider also marked the retirement of the Ferrari Portofino M convertible to Road and Track as confirmed by Ferrari communications unit.
Though Ferrari is yet to release the convertible’s price tag, market trends suggest the Roma Spider could be in the market at around $280,000. A price that makes it more expensive than Ferrari’s cheapest sports car – the $243,360 base model Ferrari Roma.

The new brand is similar to the Roma Coupe which Ferrari first displayed in 2020, but varies in their adoption of a soft top, a solution making a welcome return to the Prancing Horse range on a front-engined car 54 years after the launch of the 1969 365 GTS4.
In addition, it provides a front-engined GT line-up, greater storage space than the common hard top cars. Though the Roma Spider top is just 220mm when stowed and is powered by the twin-turbo 3.9-liter V8 that pumps out a massive 612 horsepower and 561 pound-feet of torque. The only gearbox option is a dual-clutch, eight-speed automatic. Its 8-speed DCT gearbox also provides excellent levels of comfort, mechanical efficiency, and sporty gear-shifting fun.
Morocco’s King Mohammed VI’s huge investment in ultra-modern roads and auxiliary transport facilities enhanced the organization of of the event with ease, thus highlighting his country’s readiness to host any international sports event of any magnitude.
