is 2+2 really 4?

Hey all.
I'm hoping to hear from some Mondial owners as to the nature of the "+2". Specifically on the convertible: can you really put 2 people in the back? And how small do they have to be?
I've got this car still remaining on my "first-ferrari-Short-List", but only because if it will TRULY accomodate 2+2, then It's a cinch that's the one I want. But if it won't, then it likely doesn't make the final cut for me.

Help, anyone? Pics of your car with actual PEOPLE in the back seat?

If it's anything like the 308 GT4 I just got, then the answer is no. 2+2 = 3ish.

Fine for 2 small kids though.

Ferrari's: 360 Modena, 550 Maranello
Ex's: Dino 308 GT4, 612 Scaglietti
The Rest: Rolls Royce Silver Shadow, Porsche 911 2.7s, Porsche 911 3.2 Carerra, Ducati 916... and the Land Rovers

Driver would be even more cramped to let an adult behind there, and with the offset pedals the frustration goes up easlily, which is why we stuck this 6'7" cameraman behind the wife on Bodega trip....

BTW: He didn't complain, but I'm quite certain 2000YELLOW360 made his azz hurt on that 'spirited river run' after lunch at Jenner by the Sea.

I dialed down the shocks and there are NO springs in those rear seats....but he did show all smiles.

Thank God we noticed the CHP early [his usual hidding spot]. This is one of the very few spots to pass clowns in their *&#@!! Campers....I was soooo tempted otherwise.

In road & Track I read that 2+2 means two adults and two in a pinch. (i.e. when you are not going very far) That was true in my 330 GT 2+2 and is also true in my current 412 2+2

I have a 1986 Monial coupe. The rear seats look good, and are actually VERY good for grocery bags. I actually have shin-bone room behind my own driver's seat, but only a guillotine would provide head room. Further, I expect convertible wind buffeting would take the heads off anyone who happened to formshift themselves in back there to begin with in a convertible.

Child seats might be fine. Children in need of Growth Hormone might tolerate it as long as they know the 'Lotus Position". Many of my acquaintances look upon the vehicle as a work of art, and so there is no shame in driving such a vehicle. Just keep a couple of gucci travel bags in place and all will be well.

I have a Mondial T cab - I can fit my wife and 5' 10" daugher in passenger side and my 10 year old daughter behind me when I am driving - at a pinch.
2 adults, 2 kids (under 10) really.....
But, much better than a pure 2 seater if you have kids....
