The dashboard features fluid lines that complement the exterior SF90 Spider design. Don’t expect much in terms of cargo space though and you only have about 3 cubic feet of space to keep your stuff. To keep the weight down, Ferrari would get rid of carpeted floor mats which they deemed unnecessary. Are you searching for your next car online but don’t know where to start?
