Interior

The interior layout, fit and finish

The interior of the GT Roadster looks almost as dramatic as the outside, thanks to its bulbous centre console that fences off the driver from the passenger. The material quality is sadly lacking, though.

Some of the plastic panels are lightweight – the stability control panel on the GT R is flimsier than an OJ Simpson defence plea – and the faux-metal trims on the centre console, which again are plastic, are seriously low-rent for such a high-value car. Oh yes, and you even get plastic 'leather' and fake suede seat trim on the GT C. McLaren, Porsche and Audi all do it much, much better.

The standard digital dials, arranged on a 12.3in screen, are easy to read and can be set-up in various styles. There’s also lots of seat and steering wheel adjustment to help drivers of different sizes get comfortable, and the seats themselves are supportive – especially the AMG bucket seats that are available with the GT R.

With the roof up, looking through the small rear window, visibility isn’t great, so when reversing you'll still be glad of the standard rear parking sensors and rear-view camera. That long bonnet – the end of which you can’t really see – means you’ll be relying on the standard front parking sensors, as well. The LED headlights are usefully intense, though.
