I need to mount Kessler's Cine Drive head to the inside of a car, right above the center console (equal distance to 4 passengers, at approx. eye level):

I've considered finding a car with a sunroof, and mounting through that / from the top. But no rigging can be seen out of any window, so that could pose an issue.

 

Should I remove the center console and find hardware to hard mount/bolt to that? What would be the most stable mounting method?

 

Any advice/suggestions are welcome. Thanks!

First thing that will spring to mind for many is the Children of Men car scene:
