What is it like on the inside?

Obviously, with this being a retractable hard top, there’s a fair bit of weight carried just where physics gets annoyed with it. But the roof goes up and down quickly enough, with the rear panel roosting above your head while the rear assembly packages itself away. And it really does look good roof up or down. And once it is down, you get a good view of the cabin, which seems nicely made, and cleverly designed, if a bit busy at times. There’s a multi-level dash, with a 10.25-inch touchscreen in the centre, a central spar down the middle that houses the gearbox functions and a big rev-counter in front of the driver. Plenty of standard kit, and even an optional touchscreen for the passenger. The seats are comfortable, the view acceptable. All pretty much Ferrari standard, and none the worse for it. There’s even a little M plaque on the far side of the dashboard, in case you forget what you’ve bought. 

Can I get my golf bats and kids in it?

Hmm. Well, the +2 seating really isn’t, unless they’re small kids. You can, however, push the passenger seat forwards and get someone in behind to make a semi-acceptable three-seater, though still for short journeys. As for storage, there’s a 292-litre boot that gets eaten by the roof, and a cover inside that needs to be in position before the roof will stow. It’s not that practical if you intend to drop the top, in other words. You can flop part of the seatbacks down (a standard feature on UK cars), which means you can slot in a golf bag or other longer items, but this isn’t a van, and shouldn’t be treated as such. Go and bag an FF if you need to move stuff.
