First aero engine built by Peugeot.

The engine followed closely the design of successful motor boat and racing car engines manufactured by Peugeot since 1910. The V8 was equipped with two Claudel carburetors which were jacketed and heated by means of the exhaust gas and supplied four cylinders each. The cooling water was circulated by two centrifugal pumps and dual ignition was provided by two eight-cylinder S.E.V. magnetos.
