Becuase the engine in a mid-engined car is placed between the front and the rear axle, ie it is in the middle. Rear-engined cars have their centre of gravity behind the rear axle and front engined cars gave their engine in front of the driver, not the front axle.

One website says that Seasick Steve is the SIARPC next week, but another says it will be Brundle and Coulthard

3 things:
- Loved the Lexus
- I was right about their car of the decade, when he said: "There can be only 1 car of the decade" :D
- And on a Dutch commercial about the Top Gear live shows in the Netherlands, Jeremy said: We're coming to Holland land! :lol:
