    I've noticed that the new '71 Mercedes-Benz has bigger brake discs on the rear compared to the front. Surely this is counter-intuitive? Can anyone explain why this car is set up like this?

    Also, my favourite classic car in this game, but imagine an AMG Pagoda...

    And on VR you see that the brake and throttle pedals are inverted. The pilot brakes with right foot and accelerate with left foot on middle pedal. I know some old Maserati F1 uses this system but I doubt the Red Pig uses it, but maybe I'm wrong.

    Really? That's bizarre. I thought the throttle was always on the right?

    Not quite AMG, but a Brabus Pagoda is probably as close as you can get.

    These days, generally yes. In the very early days of motoring control layout varied a great deal, including some vehicles with hand throttles and some with hand operated brake levers on the outside of the body (open top "touring" car). Even now you'll see non-standard layouts in cars specially adapted for disabled drivers.
