Go sit in it with that Helmet on and then go drive it. Not much room and any taller than you and you are completely screwed.

And some of my friends are rather tall. I am 189 cm myself, and one friend who is 196 cm fits just fine. There is even room for a helmet. He will probably buy a Toyota GT86, having driven only BMWs for 20 years or so.
