I've not heard of that one before with the tape (doesn't mean someone didn't do it).
The throttle on these cars is drive-by-wire and your throttle response curve can be completely remapped in the tune.
From the factory the pedal position vs. throttle percent is not linear. It's more of a graduated scale that looks a lot like an exponential curve we all studied in high school algebra.
In other words, 10% pedal position might = 5% throttle, 50% pedal position might equal 30% throttle, 80% pedal position might = 90% throttle and so on. And it's done that way intentionally to keep people less experienced with big power cars from getting themselves in trouble (makes the car more predictable).
But again, the whole thing can be re-mapped with a custom tune. For instance you could in theory have an on/off switch where 1% pedal position = 100% throttle. Driveability would be ****, but it is possible.
I have had my throttle curve re-mapped as more or less a linear slope where 10%=10%, 50=50 and so on. Better "perceived" throttle response than factory and still good pedal modulation for taking high speed corners.
You could even go the other way with it and have a really touchy pedal with say 10% pedal = 20% throttle, 40% pedal = 60% throttle, 80% = 80%, and well you get the idea.
