You’re 6 foot 4 and fit in the SVJ? You’re very lucky my aventador SV dreams were dashed. No chance I fitted in any version of it at 6 foot 6.
I have issues getting in but once I'm in I'm good.

I tried the roadster, no go because literally my head is above the windshield, same with the Huracan spyder. Tall people problems lol.

:-)

I'm 6 foot 1 and was told that I wouldn't fit in the Huracan Spyder, but in the end it hasn't been a problem - I have an HP Spyder with comfort seats and was able to quickly adjust the seats to accommodate me. I'd therefore urge anyone considering one of these cars but who has been told they're too tall to fit in to take a test drive and try it for themselves rather than just assuming they won't fit. Unless perhaps you're 6 foot 6!

+1

This has been noted a few times before, and it comes down to a basic question - how long are you from your arse to your barnet, not from your feet. Some 6 foot plus people have long legs/short torso, some have long torso / short legs. I’m the long legs version so no problems at all for me. I’ll get the mrs to measure me sitting down and maybe this will solve the riddle once and for all smile

PS if you are 6 foot 6 and you still fit, your knees will be beside your ears

As above pointed out, it has less to do with the height but more to do with the SHAPE of your back. I am 183cm and 85kg (I would not consider myself overweight/fat - there are several posts on this topic already) and I just cannot sit in the carbon seat for more than 10 mins. Designers from HQ in one of the Esperienza programs I attended also admitted the carbon seat In perf was not very well designed and it only fits “minority” although they insisted it is a piece of art to look at, which I do agree. I think you really need to try yourself and you should only try performante not other huracan as the carbon seat for performante has quite a lot design changes.

Performante with comfort seats just moves quicker in used car market so dealers prefer it. I attended performante esperienza in late 2018, I.e.half way through the production and was told comfort seat vs carbon seat on global basis at that point was about 70% vs 30%.

As many have mentioned. I think it depends on your body shape and type. I bought mine with the race seats because of it being a track focused car. I'd never take it on a European tour anyway, so for the amount I drive it, it suits me and the mrs fine.

Regarding the matte look. Rather than PPF, get PPS, where you can have clear satin or matte clear coat sprayed, without any cuts and joins, which will look like a paint job and protect your paint underneath at the same time. This can then be removed easily without any residue when you're done with it. My car is going to have full clear gloss protection.

Do you have a cost comparison versus full PPF for this?

On par with PPF for front end or full car. Full car is circa £3,995
