Not actually a lot of room between the pullys and the steering linkages.

Well, look at the space between the engine and the front of the car :lol:

There could be (if the bonnet was square) at least an inline 6 in there.


Use electric water pump and put the radiator/s in the trunk, then you could fit a straight 12 there, or a v 24. :twisted:

Where do you think the steering linkage is on a BMW? It's under the engine.

I like this way of thinking.

Re: Longitudinal FWD

Chrysler's LH platform used the same configuration (Think Dodge Intrepid or Eagle Vision.)

Audi does that forever..

Renault did in 25, no idea on other models

HAS TO BE IN THE GAME <3

Think Audi quit in '97 and they use a transverse setup on their FWD/AWD cars. The longitudinal are now just AWD. I live in the U.S. so it may be different for you but that is the status of the U.S. Audi models. (along with the completely idiotic no-manual-in-S3 bs :cry: )
