First V-engine (Gottlieb Daimler)
This is the first V-engine in the world, invented by Gottlieb Daimler and Wilhelm Maybach in 1888
. It was
the first time that it was actually possible to give a measure for the angel between the cylinders. In this case it was just 17°. The engine had 1050 cm³ and managed 2,95 kW (4 bhp) at 900 rpm. Remarkable: -
control of the exhaust valves, - the floating carburetor, - the coolant.
