This makes for much less headaches.

Car and Driver featured a twin-engine CR-X over thirty years back. To get it to work properly, they simply linked both engines to the same gas pedal and let the automatic transmissions match speeds through the road.

That car did 0-60 in 6.2 seconds using two 1.8 liter engines mated to four-speed automatics. Pretty nuts.
