Ok, maybe this is a very silly question: But why do they call a car mid-engine, when the engine is in the back of the car..? :confused:

BTW.: Lewis 1-0 Jenson :D


though i dont know the actual answer, but it could be because, spec-wise it is in the middle. lets see what others say about it though

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.

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:
