BMW M5 with Parallel Architecture

BMW M5 modified with Parallel Architecture and a inline 6 engine. The application of Parallel Architecture means that the engine is moved backwards, improving vehicle dynamics, driver´s position is moved forward, increasing cabin space and driver´s visibility. The windshield is also advanced, improving aerodynamics and cabin volume.
Parallel Architecture is defined because the engine is placed inside the central dashboard, in Parallel with the driver´s legs. In order to fit into this narrow space, the engine has to be inline, placed longitudinally in the car, and with all its auxiliary elements placed in series with the engine. In the top central dashboard, there is an access to the cylinder heads area when needed, but all typical maintenance work in the engine is done from the bonnet, as in normal cars.
