Hi,
I wonder what the maximum height is to fit in a ferrari? I'm 6'6'' will I even get into one? I know that many basketball players around my height drives ferrari. If I fit which model is the best for tall people? Would I fit in a Enzo Ferrari?

Well thug...I am 6'1" and when wearing my boots, 6'3". Every Ferrari I have sat in, I fit perfectly. In fact, the first time I sat in a 355 GTS, it seemed like it was cut for me. The seat was in the proper position the mirrors were adjusted correctly. It was just so right. But alas...I was about $60k short of their asking price. :wink:

Now a Lamborghini...that's a different story. All of the ones I have sat in, I had to shoehorn myself into and out of. The Murcielago, I could not even get my feet under the dash to touch the pedals at all. It was miserable.

And finally...welcome aboard!!

You can fit into a F355 onwards. 550 and 575 would fit you best, I think. Enzo, certainly. The car sits very low and has a lot of room for fore and aft adjustments.

Michael- Welcome. Order the large racing seats and it is possible. The seat bolsters are also adjustable on some of the seats. Best idea, though is to get yourself to a dealer and try one on for size. Probably also depends on how the 290 lbs are distributed.

Mileage out of an 8 year old thread. Who would have thunk it?

Michael- Affirmative. The steering wheel is adjustable for reach and rake, so that should not be a problem.

Go to ferraridatabase.com and download a 458 owners manual and you can get all the skinny on the car.

My first thought was surgery... :crowngrin:

You sir are damn tall. I think if I saw a guy your size climb out of a Ferrari, I'd accuse him of being Harry Potter because it would seem like that would require magic to get a 6'6" guy into a small car.

It's interesting to dig up old threads from the past, there could be a lot of informative articles which are still actual. To be honest, I started reading back on old threads when I joined FLife, I might be finished with that in a decade... :grin:

Ed- From eight years ago, so he could have had a dozen by now. Kind of doubt it, though.
