(Is this you...?)
This is interesting. All the 6'4" people saying not enough leg room but fine for head height. I'm 6'1" and fine for legroom but find head height a real issue. If I'm on circuit with a helmet it's in constant contact with the roof, annoyingly.
I must have a weirdly long torso...
192cm tall, wide shoulders and 105kg...OEM seat too high and you sit on and not in the car.
very simple solution...put in a recaro speedster with the A3 Recaro console and you sit 6cm lower....
with my lotus motorsport seats (complete/all in with adapter /console 10,6kg :)) I am even 9cm lower and finally sit in the car and not on it.
With that -9cm lower with 192cm tall I have no problem to fit in with a FIA approved racing helmet.
On OEM seats i fit tight but ok. But it is not possible to wear a racing helmet properly without lying in the car instead of sitting. 911 is tighter but a bit higher in OEM version, with Recaro height in r8 is similar to 911 in stock.
I'm 6'3" and around 225 lbs - no problem fitting in the R8. In fact, the seat can go back further. That said, I'm also pretty well proportioned between legs and torso. If you have much more length in your legs than torso, you may have an issue, especially with the spyder (slightly less seat travel).
Hi, maybe a bit late for this thread but I'm 6'4" 250lbs (115kg - I converted for you) and I fit into my 2008 R8 no problems at all. My shoulders are broad. Seat is right down but not all the way back and steering wheel is out and down a little. I'd be uncomfortable if my butt was any bigger and my torso certainly feels the padding on the seats. If I lost 20 lbs it would be a perfect fit I feel. I haven't tried wearing a helmet but I think it would slightly touch and bother me. All the best
