    6'4" 220lbs medium torso. I have no problem with headroom even with a helmet on. Legroom is good but I have to keep the seat back a good bit. My old 997 Turbo was tight on the shoulder width when I had buddies in the car. With the misses it was fine.

    5'6"/180lbs no issues. My son is 6'3" and 215lbs and fits but agrees it is tight. You might need the Gurney Bump in the roof - reminiscent of the 66 Ford GT cars.

    Replaced the OEM seats with OMP HTE-R XL Carbon seats. Fabbed a custom bracket to ensure it sits LOW.

    Boom_td1 at 6'4" I'm interested in this, thanks for posting. Do you have any estimate of how much lower and further back you can sit compared to stock?

    Re: How tall is everybody 6'3" 250. will I fit

    The more important question is your sitting height versus leg length.

    I pulled this info a long time ago for the GT and Competition which I felt best applied to me since I was considering a GT/Competition (even though I would up purchasing and V10+)

    The interior spec for the GT and Competition are almost identical:
    INTERIOR
    Front head room
    38 "
    Front shoulder room
    54 " (GT) 55” (COMP)
    Front leg room
    41.1 "

    If you have a long torso, but shorter legs - leg room shouldn't be a problem.

    I am almost 6'4" and 215 my sitting height is 37" so . . . I can fit in okay with the scantest amount of headroom and plenty of leg room for me. I have found that my eye level is a little below the top of the front windshield - so I do have to duck my head down a little bit for some intersections if I am the first car waiting on lights. I think if I was maybe a couple of inches shorter in my seating height or have the GT bucket seats that were OEM with cars in Europe I might be in a better seating position - but the car might be a little harder to get in and out of. So there is a little bit off a trade-off there. The fit of the seats is also going to be a concern - if you have a big butt, the R8 may not be for you. I am a trim 215 so the fit is fine for me. But, I also avoid wearing a wallet in my back pants pockets - I put my wallet in the center console - it make a noticeable difference in seating comfort for longer trips and it ensures my seating height is not elevated by my wallet since headroom is already kind tight.

    I’m 6’1" and 190 pounds. I wouldn’t mind a few more inches of leg room, but it’s certainly not a deal breaker.

    I'm 7'2, 375 lbs and have a build similar to The Rock, but larger.

    I fit in the car no problem, and even have room to wear a helmet.
