  FR layout - WOI Encyclopedia Italia
In Automobile design, an FR, or Front-engine, Rear wheel drive means a layout where the engine is in the front of the vehicle and drive wheels at the rear.
The first FR car was an 1895 Panhard model, so this layout was known as the "Systeme Panhard" in the early years.
Most American cars used the FR layout until the 1980s, exemplified by the Ford Mustang, Chevrolet Corvette, and originally German vehicles from BMW and Mercedes-Benz.

 FR layout - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In automobile design, an FR, or front-engine, rear wheel drive means a layout where the engine is in the front of the vehicle and drive wheels at the rear.
The layout is still more suitable than front-wheel drive for engine outputs of more than about 200 bhp, as the weight transference during acceleration loads the rear wheels and increases grip.
The FM layout is based on the FR layout.

 FF layout - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In contrast with the FR layout, the FF layout eliminates the need for a central tunnel or a higher chassis clearance to accommodate a driveshaft providing power to the rear wheels.
However, powerful cars rarely use the FF layout because weight transference under acceleration unloads the front wheels and sharply reduces their grip, effectively putting a cap on the amount of horsepower which could realistically be utilized.
There are four quite different particular arrangements for this basic layout, according to the location of the engine, which is the heaviest component of the drivetrain, with respect to the front wheels.
