I do and it is just about possible in a Murena. Sounds great too!
The best ever car for heel-and-toe gear changing is the Peugeot 205.

Heel and Toe gearchanging is what you do when changing down through the gears and blipping the throttle while braking.
Your "toes" are on the brake pedal and in the middle of the gearchange, ie when the 'box is in neutral for a moment, you hit the accelerator with your "heel", although it is actually the side of your foot, whilst releasing the clutch.

It reduces engine braking when changing down quickly making the car more stable.

Not to be tried by the inexperienced on a public road!

More likely, you need 4 feets to drive this car.
Clutch is havy and need 2 feets, gaspedal is hanging and needs 2 feets to.
Need something to hit the brakepedal as wel. Tongue

2 feet for the clutch from the driver, 2 feet for the brake from the passenger, and 2 feet on the throttle from the other passenger
