Ferrari FF Coupe with Parallel Architecture

Ferrari FF modified to be a Coupe with a Parallel Architecture layout, in order to display its advantages of Parallel Architecture in vehicle design. As the original Ferrari FF already has a mid-center engine layout, benefits from Parallel Architecture would be improved aerodynamics, rear cargo space and driver´s visibility.
Parallel Architecture is defined by the placement of the engine in parallel with the driver's legs, below the central dashboard area. In order to maintain the minimum width, the inline engine must be installed longitudinally in the vehicle, with all the engine auxiliaries mounted in series relative to the engine. In this case, the original V12 engine would also have to be replaced for an inline-6.
The base of the windshield is moved forward, so that the dashboard has sufficient length to allow access to the top of the engine, in order to perform maintenance operations on the cylinder heads area, by opening an access chamber on the top of the central dashboard.
