Avant is the opposite of arriere in the automotive industry anyway. So when you get a control tecnique test on you car it might say pneu av dr or ar ga for front right and left rear tyres. Despite these being spacial and not temporal descriptions!
Another example is the famous Citroen B11 of 1949 known as the Traction Avant because it has front wheel drive.
