Even if you could make it work efficiently...straight engine power x4(which its so not) you'd be looking at a car that could never hook up properly, and would sit there and do circles.

It IS though, a very interesting engineering exercise.

this.

GT-R is so efficient that it can smoke the crap out of that thing with less than 1/2 the power.

Just curious...is that thing street legal? Will it pass VI?

Just think; much like the Veyron, it's a 16.4 churning out 1200hp. Who cares if it spins it's tires at 60mph; who cares if it can't be tracked around the 'Ring; who cares if [insert excuse here]? It's some guy's backyard project that, while is based on old racing technology, is something that we should all aspire to by taking a project we're working on and think outside the box. Instead of slamming a MK2 GTI on BBS rims or doing an SR20 swap in an S13, try something different. This guy certainly did and you can tell how much he loved doing it.

I cannot think of another car that would turn more heads than seeing a car with essentially 4 engines turn up at your local meet. I'm pretty sure this would attract more attention than a veyron.

If anyone on this site can build a car with 2-perfectly sync'd motors that hauls ass down the road. I'd give them a cookie.

It's not really "a piece of cake" to slap 2 motors together and not have them essentially blow up because 1 tiny thing is running differently from the other engine.

it's basically a show car, not a model of efficiency. It's just for fun. Who cares if it won't run perfectly.

Saw it at the LA Roadster Show this past June. Guy who owns it just idled it around the fairgrounds. Engineering is cool, but totally show - no go.
