1929 CIME A2 (1,202 cc)

CIME (La Compagnie Industrielle des Moteurs a Explosion, "the Industrial Combustion Engine Company") was a French manufacturer of light proprietary engines, mainly four-cylinder units. CIME also built light automobiles themselves.

CIME engines were used by a number of cyclecar and voiturette manufacturers in the inter-war era. Their greatest successes were in E.H.P. cars, notably a fifth place at the 1927 24 Hours of Le Mans with a 1,094 cc four-cylinder.[1][2] CIME also built straight-six engines.
