Today, when hybrid models are rampant, the fact that they can be in a car at the same time two engines it has become quite normal, but in the past it obviously wasn’t. Indeed, adding a second engine rather than upgrading the main one (or adding an all-wheel drive, if that is the need), appears as a rather complicated and impractical way to solve the problem. Yet, in the past, it has happened a few times.
Of course, we are talking about extraordinary cars, almost all designed for competitions and therefore without worrying about sacrificing space in the rear area, or loading the weight of a second engine, to double power and / or traction. And one of these even went into production. Would you guess which one?
- Alfa Romeo 16C Twin engine
- Citroën 2CV Sahara
- Lancia Trevi Bimotore
- Mini “Twini”
- Volkswagen Golf Pikes Peak
