I believe that one of the first vehicles to have this "drive by wire" 
throttle control was the BMW 750iL, first produced in the late 1980s.  I 
can't recall any other specific vehicles that have this, although there must 
be some.  The cars with traction control using the throttle may have "drive 
by wire."  BZ

Do all commercial vehicles have the throttle plate directly connected do
the accelerator pedal?  (I would think reasons of safety might mandate
this.)  Are there any "fly-by-wire" systems with the throttle valve under
computer control?  Would there be any advantages to doing this?
