The 4-cylinder engine as a transparent functional model has a size of 27.5 x 13.5 x 22.5 cm. Thanks to the transparent housing, the mechanics and engine structure can be easily recognized and the sound faithfully reproduces the engine noise. The ignition sparks of the cylinders are simulated by LEDs, even the valves, pistons and vertical shafts are moved realistically. Due to the screwed and plugged construction, the model motors can also be easily assembled by beginners, but are still demanding and therefore a challenge for young and old.
