L.V.G. C VIII
  Final two-seater to emerge from the L.V.G. factory during the First World War was the C VIII of 1918. Although not vastly different from the C VI, there were larger and shallower cut-outs in the wings and ailerons with a link strut fitted at all four wingtips. The high-compression 200 h.p. Benz IV u. engine developed some 240 h.p. at rated altitude and was fitted with a large car-type radiator on the extreme nose. Only one aircraft was completed. Engine, 200 h.p. Benz Bz IV u.

The LVG CVIII was designed for the high-compression 200hp Benz I (to give 240hp) for altitude performance. In the event, however, the prototype was a one-off as production effort was concentrated on more promising types.
