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.
Write five of your favourite cars in your signature.
1. Ascari KZ1 2. Maybach Exelero 3. Pininfarina Birdcage
4. Aston Martin DB9 5. BMW M6
