Entry and exit aren't the easiest, considering its low roof and low ride height, but once inside, the R8 is very comfortable. The seats are supportive, well-bolstered, but not intrusive; leg room very good, even better than the Gallardo it shares a few parts with, thanks to its five-inch greater length. Compared to the likes of the Corvette or Jaguar XKR, it's the roomiest of the bunch, even for taller or wider people.
The flat-bottomed, tilt/telescope steering wheel, low front end, and large windshield allow the driver to get in position for very good forward visibility. Rearward visibility is compromised by thick pillars and a small window. The thick A-pillars impinge somewhat on front/side visibility as well.
Materials, design, and color schemes in the 2012 R8 are all outstanding. Cargo space, on the other hand, requires some planning, as even the small area under the front hood will hold only a couple of smallish soft-sided bags, while the netted cargo shelf behind the seats is best reserved for laptops, briefcases, and purses.
