Brake shoes

Autocar - - YOUR VIEWS -

In your test of the Lam­borgh­ini Hu­racán Per­for­mante (Road Test, 11 Oc­to­ber), you show the pedal/wheel align­ment and state that the pedals “are where they ought to be”. This may be true for the vast ma­jor­ity of your read­ers, al­beit not this one.

For more than half my life, I have been braking with my left foot in au­to­matic-equipped cars. I find that this gives me much bet­ter con­trol of the car and de­liv­ers quicker re­sponse tim­ing in emer­gen­cies.

As far as I can see, the Hu­racán set-up is far from left-foot-brak­ingfriendly. More mak­ers should pro­vide a brake pedal in their au­to­mat­ics that suits the use of ei­ther foot on a reg­u­lar ba­sis. Karl Lud­vigsen Bury St Ed­munds, Suf­folk
