What is a mid-engine car?

A mid-engine car has its engine between the rear and front axles, usually behind where the passengers sit. This layout is most commonly found in sports cars. One of the main reasons for placing the engine in the middle is that it puts more weight over the rear tyres, which improves their grip on the road and lessens the chances of skidding or going into a spin. Placing an engine behind the passengers means there tends to be no room for rear passenger seats. Consequently, most mid-engine cars are two-seaters.
