    Gottlieb Daimler at an advanced age. By the end of 1883, he and Wilhelm Maybach develop a small, high-speed internal combustion engine with an uncontrolled hot-tube ignition system ready for patenting. The next test engine, referred to as the "Grandfather-Clock Engine" due to its resemblance to pendulum clocks, is the final breakthrough in 1884 and appears in various stages of development in the so-called “Reitwagen”, in the Daimler Motor Carriage and in various boats.
