Double engine cars?

So I had this idea about cars with two engines. First of all I have no idea is this old, so don't flame me if it is.
I'm talking about concepts or modified cars which have 2 engines, preferably one in the front and one in the back. The idea is:
What if we make one engine drive rear wheels and the other will drive front wheels? (there would be 2 separate and independant units) Is this a good idea or bad? Could it boost preformance? I thought that we could take this a little further and install 2 pedals, each for every engine (similiar to separate brake pedals for rear and front wheels in race cars). Maybe it could give the driver more control. Tell me what you think.
