Ferrari FF with Parallel Architecture

Ferrari FF modified with Parallel Architecture. Original architecture is mid-center engine with an V12 engine placed longitudinally. For a Parallel Architecture configuration the engine would have to be replaced by an inline 6. As it already has engine placed in mid-center position, with the proposed Parallel Architecture it would improve its aerodynamics, habitability and driver´s visibility, while keeping its sport car dynamics .
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.
