4wd: torque split front-to-rear other than 50/50?

4wd: torque split front-to-rear other than 50/50?
Can torque be split front-to-rear other than 50/50? With the current possibilities for setting up the differentials, I would say no -- but I would be more than happy to be proven wrong!

I am asking because I'd like to make a Peugeot 508 RXH with PSA's Hybrid4 system: a front internal combustion engine (120kW) plus a rear electric engine (27kW).

Ideally, this would be simulated with two separate sources of power, as Project CARS seems to be doing. But I could settle for a central differential if torque could be split so that 81% goes to the front wheels and 19% to the rear wheels.

Now, how could this be implemented? According to the documentation, "if the differential is torque-sensitive, then anti-slip-torque defines the amount of anti-slip torque per input torque". I may be talking nonsense here... but if we could tell the central differential which end is which, then anti-slip-torque = 4.26 will equalize front and rear torques along the desired distribution.
