I recall that as being an A2 VW Golf based car. Basically had 2 FWD
powerplants running, and the throttles were mechanical, so it was just a
matter of the right lengths and pulleys. There must be some info out there
on it. Check back issues of European Car. I'm recalling 8V powerplants,
but might've been 16V units.
