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.

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