Do you love the new Ferrari Roma design? Frank Stephenson, one of the greatest automobile designers of our times is walking us through the all new Ferrari Roma in this article. He walks us through his designer eyes the Roma’s front view, side view, rear view and also the interior design. It is a must watch for all sportscar design lovers and critics. If you are a designer or creative artist, use this as a guide or tutorial. Very interesting video for me.

Frank Stephenson

Frank Stephenson (born 3 October 1959) is an American automobile designer widely known for his famous design works at BMW, Mini, Ferrari, Maserati, Lancia, Alfa Romeo, Fiat and even McLaren. Motor Trend magazine has called him “one of most influential automotive designers of our time“. Believe me, he is the one who designed the McLaren P1. Also BMW Mini is his pure design creation. His other famous designs includes Maserati MC12, Ferrari F430, Fiat 500, McLaren MP4-12C, Ferrari FXX and McLaren 570S. I have added pictures of these cars below (after the video) for your reference.

Ferrari Roma Design Analysis

Not everybody is happy with the Ferrari Roma design. It is definitely not the Love at first sight design for me. But eventually, I started loving the car and now if feels like a good design to me. I thought the new Ferrari Roma lacks the essence of Ferrari design. In the below video, Frank explains the design elements, how it is different from traditional Ferrari design and why he loves the design. He proves the point that it is pure Italian design and mostly Ferrari design with some twists. Those twists are of course positive design changes to the traditional Ferrari works.

There is every justification in the video for the 9.5/10 score of the Ferrari Roma design.

Major deviation in the Ferrari Roma design

As Frank has pointed out in the above video, there are 5 major differences in the Ferrari Roma compared to traditional Ferrari design. Following are the five items for your reference.

  1. Body colored front grill – Instead of the traditionally black grill.
  2. Horizontal head lights – Of late, most of the Ferrari cars have vertical or L shaped head light design.
  3. Ferrari badge on the side fenders – I absolutely miss this badge which adds beauty to the side view.
  4. Non round tail lights – The rear lights really looks like a Corvette tail lights.
  5. Red start button on the Steering wheel – This is another famous Ferrari item that is missed out in the Ferrari Roma.

    Hey, this is Eric and I ran across aspiringsupercarowners.com a few minutes ago.

    Looks great… but now what?

    By that I mean, when someone like me finds your website – either through Search or just bouncing around – what happens next? Do you get a lot of leads from your site, or at least enough to make you happy?

    Honestly, most business websites fall a bit short when it comes to generating paying customers. Studies show that 70% of a site’s visitors disappear and are gone forever after just a moment.

    Here’s an idea…

    How about making it really EASY for every visitor who shows up to get a personal phone call you as soon as they hit your site…

    You can –

    Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It signals you the moment they let you know they’re interested – so that you can talk to that lead while they’re literally looking over your site.

    CLICK HERE http://www.talkwithwebvisitors.com to try out a Live Demo with Talk With Web Visitor now to see exactly how it works.

    You’ll be amazed – the difference between contacting someone within 5 minutes versus a half-hour or more later could increase your results 100-fold.

    It gets even better… once you’ve captured their phone number, with our new SMS Text With Lead feature, you can automatically start a text (SMS) conversation.

    That way, even if you don’t close a deal right away, you can follow up with text messages for new offers, content links, even just “how you doing?” notes to build a relationship.

    Pretty sweet – AND effective.

    Hey there, I just found your site, quick question…

    My name’s Eric, I found aspiringsupercarowners.com after doing a quick search – you showed up near the top of the rankings, so whatever you’re doing for SEO, looks like it’s working well.

    So here’s my question – what happens AFTER someone lands on your site? Anything?

    Research tells us at least 70% of the people who find your site, after a quick once-over, they disappear… forever.

    That means that all the work and effort you put into getting them to show up, goes down the tubes.

    Why would you want all that good work – and the great site you’ve built – go to waste?

    Because the odds are they’ll just skip over calling or even grabbing their phone, leaving you high and dry.

    But here’s a thought… what if you could make it super-simple for someone to raise their hand, say, “okay, let’s talk” without requiring them to even pull their cell phone from their pocket?

    You can – thanks to revolutionary new software that can literally make that first call happen NOW.

    Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that sits on your site, ready and waiting to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It lets you know IMMEDIATELY – so that you can talk to that lead while they’re still there at your site.

    You know, strike when the iron’s hot!

    CLICK HERE http://www.talkwithcustomer.com to try out a Live Demo with Talk With Web Visitor now to see exactly how it works.

    When targeting leads, you HAVE to act fast – the difference between contacting someone within 5 minutes versus 30 minutes later is huge – like 100 times better!

    That’s why you should check out our new SMS Text With Lead feature as well… once you’ve captured the phone number of the website visitor, you can automatically kick off a text message (SMS) conversation with them.

    Imagine how powerful this could be – even if they don’t take you up on your offer immediately, you can stay in touch with them using text messages to make new offers, provide links to great content, and build your credibility.

    Just this alone could be a game changer to make your website even more effective.
