Gottlieb Wilhelm Daimler (born Däumler, March 17, 1834 - March 6, 1900) is known as an inventor and pioneer in the field of German automotive. In 1890 he managed to develop an internal combustion engine, and in 1883 Daimler invented a gasoline-powered engine, and patented a four-stroke engine. Daimler made the first car (along with Carl Friedrich Benz).
In 1890, he founded Daimler Motoren Gesellschaft (DMG). Twenty-four years after Daimler's death, DMG's management signed a long-term cooperative agreement with Benz & Cie. owned by Carl Benz, and in 1926 the two companies merged to form Daimler-Benz AG, which is now part of Daimler AG.

In 1889, Gottlieb Daimler created a V-inclined two-cylinder, four-stroke engine with a mushroom-shaped valve. Just like the 1874 Otto engine, the new Daimler engine sets the base for all the car engines going forward.
