Unlike older supercars, that had cramped and noisy cabins, poor visibility, and so on, the Ferrari 599 GTB is a very civilized car. It cabin is exceptionally spacious, while two burly blokes will find themselves comfortable. Even the boot is more then large enough to take all the luggage. Smaller items can be carried inside on the rear shelf.
