Before introducing their first automobile to the public, Laurin and Klement decided to showcase its engine. Although it is apparent from the photographs taken at the Prague Motor Show in April 1905 that the highlight of the company’s presentation was the CCCC motorcycle, the two-cylinder liquid-cooled V-engine is to be found in the bottom right corner. The first photo of the whole vehicle, the Voiturette A, was published in the second half of 1905, first by Allgemeine Automobil Zeitung and then also by Sport a hry magazine. This two-seater was able to reach the then maximum speed limit in Austria-Hungary, 45 km/h, and its 1,005 cm3 engine produced 7 HP. One year later, this engine was followed by the first four-cylinder for Type D and in 1907 by the FF eight-cylinder, one of the world’s first eight-cylinder engines.
