I fit slightly less happily in the cabin. I've used these sports seats with their fang-like under-thigh protuberances before and always found them rather hard. They look superb, of course, even from the back, but with minimal adjustment available, you need to fit them rather than them you, and I'm too narrow and short. Six foot and 14 stone would be about perfect, I reckon.
Bar some funky new air vents, the cabin is largely free from surprises. If you've peered inside a 458 or FF, you'll recognise the steering wheel and dash lay-out: no column stalks and just one central dial - a bright yellow rev-counter - flanked by a pair of info screens. It's a bit of a fiddle, but you get used to the way it works. Certainly, as we slipped away from Maranello at 4.30 this morning, I was grateful for this familiarity, able to trigger full beam easily, find somewhere within reach for phone and wallet, plus select the softer of the two damper settings.
