How bad? Well, I can live with it as I don't drive it in summers here in Florida (no AC installed) but it's very noticeably a source of heat in the cabin by your legs.

I wondered about maybe cutting some holes in the panels between the engine compartment and the wheel wells but I don't know enough about the aerodynamics of the car to be sure it wouldn't make things worse. Aston Martins of that vintage had louvred panels there.
