Two engines? Cool idea!
Two gearboxes? Eh?
I wonder how the power is transmitted from the gearboxes to the rear wheels.
You can see a 2 into 1 gearbox between the engine gearboxes and the diff.

oopph - thats awesome.

Something about those photos looks filtered / shopped - not that it really matters.

So what am I missing?

What's shown in that photo - nothing is hooked up?
Looks to me like a bunch of car parts arranged to resemble what a finished vehicle might look like.
So as I said, what am I missing?

How can you tell from that photo that the constituent parts aren't actually linked and functional?

You seem to be under high pressure to find disagreement, don't you?

Not really, no.

I'm just trying to understand the "looks like a bunch of car parts arranged to resemble what a finished vehicle would look like"

I'm asking you to explain to me why you think that, because I'm not seeing it. Maybe you're seeing something I'm not - hence me asking for elaboration.

Thanks for clearing that up. I'm not seeing any functional connection between the drivetrain and the raw shell, nor to the rear axle.
There are three small rectangular profiles visible that keep the parts in position. Many other components, such as a frame, are missing.

What do you see?

Love the colour. I'd stick with a V8 though. And the wooden dash is awful.

I like wooden dashes and was quite prepared to challenge you on that statement ... until I looked at the pictures ... it really is awful!

It might (and I mean might!) not look quite so bad if it didn't go so far down? Maybe? Crackle black would look much more subtle / classy though.

Agree, that dash is the only thing I dislike in what, imo, is otherwise a truly awesome car.

Easy fix though, if it was for sale and one was buying.

Odd choice of wood, turned aluminium I would go for. Change to green to deep dark blue/purple.

Sorta looks like the rear 'bulkhead' looking thing contains some sort of gearing connecting both gearbox outputs to a central output, then the diff., Possibly frame rails under the gearboxes, joining to the front 'bulkhead' at the bellhousings, then maybe in between the motors
