October 28, 2020, Maranello – The Ferrari Roma has bagged the Production Cars category of the prestigious Car Design Award.
The award ran from 1984 to 1997 before being relaunched in 2016. The remote 2020 prize-giving ceremony was held on the Car Design Awards YouTube channel. The plaudit is an acknowledgement of the work of the design teams responsible for the automotive sector’s finest production designs of the year.
Launched in 1984 by Auto&Design magazine, the Car Design Award is aimed at projects that have contributed to the evolution of car design. This year’s winners were selected by an expert jury of 12 journalists from the leading international car publications.
“The Ferrari design team, led by Flavio Manzoni, did an incredible job with the Roma. This car reinterprets the classical lines of a Gran Turismo car and projects them into the 21st century thanks to sensual, evocative and cutting-edge design,” the jury said in a statement.
Ferrari Roma is Maranello’s new 2+ coupe, a model sublimely refined, timeless design and all the power and agility required to guarantee a unique driving experience. Its signature Italian styling is a contemporary reinterpretation of the carefree lifestyle of 1950s and 60s Rome, from which it takes its evocative name Roma.
