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.
This engine was amongst others used for the first four-wheel motor vehicle.
