In this case, the shifting HAS to be in total sync with the other engine, otherwise it would just result in one engine having to push/pull the slower spinning wheels, which would in turn actually make it slower.

Man, i wish this guy was here in the forum to tell us how he did it. My already minuscule brain's been over heating thinking about this
Me too cracking my brains on the same....whatever it is its, ' AMAZING'

This car must be running on a pair of DSG's. The drivers throttle cable will be linked to both the engines and the car itself will be running on Auto. So individual engines are free to choose their ratios for the target RPM and Load on those individual engines.
If he is running manual (On DSG), he would have simply linked the paddle and the gear stick to both transmissions (since everything is electronic, no manual linkages, AFAIK).
Running 2 engines in different states of tune is a complex, but incredible idea! One could have a very peaky delivery and the other a very flat response. Best of both worlds!

VW experimented with twin engines in the early 80's. They tried it with a Jetta, I remember reading about it in autocar during my youth. They then prepared a couple of Scirroccos. More here

The sound in the cabin must be unbearable, I also want to know how the chassis was strengthened, the stock chassis definitely would buckle under the weight and the humongous power on this beast

Dear Lord! Will that thing won't just take off? Can't imagine how would such a machine behave when its put to test on a wet slippery tarmac! But to give it a thought, let's just bring in all the manufacturing and design tolerances involved in the same, if the front and rear wheels are powered at different rpms (negligible though), it will (I guess) sure have an impact on the arm it is mounted, isn't it?

I mean, share your thoughts everyone - what could be the potential challenges in bringing these two to perfect harmony? And the consequences if one such thing is not achieved.

From the link that you shared, this image is just so interesting.
Wouldn't you call it double redlining?

Wow!! Hats off!! Can't anyone get this guy to put in his tech inputs in here. I'm sure if he wants to be a member, moderator approval will beat his baby's 0-100 timing. :-)

This is not a new idea or concept .

Has been done before by the people at MTM Using a Mk1 Audi TT

MTM Bimoto

Top speed: 393 km/h
0-100 -> 3,1s
0-200 -> 8,9s
0-300 -> 19,8s


also Mercedes made a similar study with two engines in a A 190
