|In 1892 the "Riemenwagen" ("belt car") with a two-cylinder series-engine whose performance was raised from 2 hp in the beginning to 10 hp in 1899 was created at Daimler. This vehicle featured a number of patented novelties like e.g. the spraying nozzle carburetor, the breaking-off control, and the belt drive after which it was called.
The Daimler "Phoenix"-vehicle of 1897 was called after the two-cylinder "Phoenix"-engine with a performance of 6 hp installed vertically in the front of the vehicle. In 1899 a four-cylinder version with 6. 8, or 10 hp was added.
