I drove the Silver Euro Elise back in October when it was down here at Autostrada. I had some concern with how close the brake was to the accelerator. I wear an 11 1/2 D (Wide) shoe and I was catching the brake nearly every time I went for the gas.
I flew up to Chicago over the weekend to take in the Auto Show and see the Elise. I had talked to the Mike Wogronic from Fox Valley about seeing the car (my wife hadn't seen it yet) so he told me to find him at the show and he'd let us into the roped off area.
I'm very glad to report that the pedals on the Federal car have a little more wiggle room around them. I think they are still approximately the same distance apart, but there is more room to the right of the accelerator with ample space for my big hoof. I'd say the made at least an extra 1/2 to 3/4 inch difference which was all I needed.
A big thanks goes out to Mike who helped us out knowing full well that I already had a deposit down here in Austin. If you're anywhere near Chicago next week, you owe it to yourself to head over to Fox Valley on the 21st when they have the car in their awesome showroom. http://www.foxvalleymotorcars.com
