Last December we showed you the renders of DMC’s 2022 new Ferrari. Now the car is on the street and first photos have emerged that we don’t want you to miss. Introducing the brand new DMC Ferrari Roma “Fuego”!
The Roma is one of the latest models that Ferrari has launched, and it didn’t come without polarizing features. Some think it’s too much Aston Martin, while others have welcomed the new style. DMC, Super Car Tuner from Germany, decided to bring all sides together by creating a new Roma, that aims to please both sides. DMC started with an agressive engine tuning that unleashes a peak output of 708 hp and a peak torque of 888 Nm from the 3.9-liter twin-turbo eight-cylinder engine. This revised engine catapults the Roma to 100 km/h in just 3.2 seconds and gives it a top speed 326 km/h. But the German engineers didn’t stop there. The DMC carbon aerodynamic-enhancement components not only support the additional power, but also create an aggressive looking beast. Professional 21-inch and 22-inch forged wheels, developed with Canadian rim manufacturer PUR WHEELS, optimally fill out the available space under the wheel arches. The German company’s range also includes suspension modifications as well as the customization of the interior tailored to the customer’s personal preferences.
DMC has has been performing engine tuning since 2009 to make super cars even more sporty. It has to be noted that the actual 3.9-liter twin-turbo V8 in the bow of the Roma remains untouched, the performance upgrade was achieved in several steps. In order to optimize the power delivery further, the engineers of the tuner developed modified controls for the electronic engine management system. All output levels use a DMC control module, which introduces specifically calibrated mapping for injection and ignition. It also upgrades the electronic boost pressure control. These measures benefit more than just the power delivery. They also further optimize the throttle response and the powerful in-gear acceleration. When comparing with the stock Roma, the peak output of the eight-cylinder engine increases by 88 hp while peak torque grows by 128 Nm over the standard configuration. With 708 hp at 888 Nm, the Roma now sprints from 0 – 100 km/h in just 3.2 seconds and reaches a speed of 200 km/h after a jaw dropping 8.9 seconds. The top speed is in excess of 325 km/h. And this is supported by what DMC is doing best. The German designers used the latest Aerodynamic Software to develop a body styling kit that makes the Roma even more streamlined and aerodynamically efficient. Gone are the days of analogue wind-tunnel tests which are good but bear too many factors for errors. With the new styling, the Ferrari Roma received an even more extravagant appearance. All bodywork components are manufactured from especially light yet high-strength naked carbon and given a matte or glossy coating.
The DMC front lip installs by attaching it to the production bumper. It adds needed downforce and and gives the Roma an aggressive front fascia. Downforce is well needed since the new engine spec is so powerful that the car needs an optimized stability at high speeds. The DMC side skirts attach directly to the stock side rocker panels and give the Ferrari a lower and sleeker visual stance in the side view and optimize the airflow between the front and rear wheel arches. In order to improve the rear up-lift, and thus achieve an optimal aerodynamic balance, DMC enhanced the Roma with a lip spoiler on the rear trunk lid. Further upgrades are the rear diffuser insert, all which reduce rear-axle lift.
PUR WHEELS has been a long-year partner for DMC and they have produced some of the excellent wheels we have seen on DMC’s cars that were exhibited at the Geneva Motor Show. The wheel design for the Ferrari Roma is no different. The vehicle pictured in December’s press release sports black DMC alloys with brushed surface. These wheels with five delicate double spokes are mounted on the Roma’s front axle in size 9Jx21 with tires of size 255/30 ZR 21. The 12Jx22 rims on the rear axle carry tires of size 315/25 ZR 22.
The DMC sport springs are a new addition to DMC’s product line up, one however that perfectly makes sense. They are tailored specifically to these high-performance tires and lower the ride height of the Ferrari by about 35 millimeters.
As usual, DMC also fulfills the personal wishes of every customer in the cockpit with perfectly finished leather and Alcantara interiors. There is no limit when it comes to personal taste, and the the selection of colors is just as infinite as the range of designs. Depending on country of residence, this range can even include exotic leathers such as croco and others.
