So some feedback from a big guy (5'11" @ 350), I have lost 120+ in the last 16 months, but I still have alot more to go.
I fit fine in my Alffeta GT, but today I went shopping for a new(used) car, my short list going in was late model Ferrari 308(84/85),
6-8 year old Maserati Gran-Turismo and new AR Guila QV, when I was alot lighter I was in a 308 before, but neither of the other two.
So here is my feedback:
Ferrari 308-it was tight, cramped and the hardest to get in/out of, I was surprised, from being in 308/328s before, it was easy then,
I guess I am just older and fatter! Bummed, I have always loved this car!
Maserati Gran-Turismo-it had the most room inside, easiest to get in/out, great feel inside, can I say this?, it felt the most
"old-manish", great car but just slightly bland for what I am looking for.
AR Guila QV-going in I did not think I would fit, and although not super easy too get in with my size, once in place I completely
felt at home, ready for a long drive, I would also say the Guila QV is one of those cars that looks better in person then in photos
and its gorgeous in photos! Very impressed, this is the car I am going to buy. Wow, large trunk too! Your wife will like that!
Also, sat in a Stelvio, lot of room here too for big guys, but I am just a car guy, liked it better then our Range Rover.
That's my feedback for big guys, hope it helps someone.
