What is it like on the inside?

Other than the headroom, not too much has changed in here from the coupe. Ahead of you is a very busy steering wheel, with Ferrari sticking to its ‘eyes on the road, hands on the wheel’ philosophy. All of your drive modes are on there, as well as the Manettino, lights, indicators, wipers, a touch-sensitive start/stop button, phone connectivity controls and a haptic touchpad that looks after the screen behind.

It’s not the most intuitive thing to use, that touchpad, but the screen it looks after is a lovely curved 16-inch unit that shows all of your dials, media and navigation. You’ve then got climate controls within easy reach on a separate touch-sensitive panel to your side, while the drive selector aims to ape an old open-gate manual gearbox. We don’t mind that – it’s nice to see Ferrari having a bit of fun.

The optional JBL audio system is impressive too – although you’d hope it would be for £3,552. What’s not so great is the boot space. In fact it’s rather laughable. We praised the packaging earlier, but thanks to the twin electric motors and fancy aero up front there’s a very small letterbox under the bonnet that supposedly passes as a boot. Plus, unlike in the Stradale there’s no space behind the seats in the Spider. Two-up road trips? Forget it unless you don’t mind re-wearing underpants.
