Are all Ferrari pedals so closely spaced?

    A while back I had the pleasure of sitting in an early Ferrari 308 (which I barely fit in) and found the pedals too close for size 13 wide shoe. I could not step on the accelerator pedal without pressing on the brake. I am not sure I would have been able to drive that car comfortably. Recently, I saw a picture of a 328's pedals on Ebay and they seemed better spaced. My questions 1) Do 308's and 328's have different pedal spacing? 2) Is there anyway to improve a cars pedal spacing? (after market) 3) How are pedals on 348's, 355's, and TRs? Thanks in advance for your feedback.

    My brother ski's.....I mean, his size 13 feet (and being 6' 3" @ 240), he is butt hurt because he cannot fit in my 308. He always tells me to make more money so I can buy a bigger Ferrari!

    First time I drove my 355 up to a set of lights....... applied brakes... and then rev rev rev up to 9,000 while standing still. I was like, what the heck?? I thought the car was about the explode, then I realised.... ah only my size 8s (tiny feet) being used to a Porsche Boxster. Very embarrassing - everyone around just thought I was showing off!

    To potentially answer your question. Hill Engineering (here in the UK) do replacement pedals for 355/348/328. They may do custom ones to, here is the website: www.hill-engineering.co.uk. I got a great replacement gear knob from them for my 355.
