A multi-cylinder internal combustion engine with at least one cylinder row is equipped with a cylinder head housing containing intake and exhaust valves that feed combustion air to the cylinders and release combustion exhaust gases through an exhaust system via control devices in dependence of the position of the crankshaft. Devices for generating differing exhaust valve lift progressions of at least two cylinders arranged in one cylinder row are incorporated to reduce overlapping opening phases of these exhaust valves. The intake valve and the exhaust valve of one of the two cylinders are themselves in an overlapping opening phase. Thereby, a uniform filling rate of the cylinders with new gas is achieved, particularly on a V-8 engine with a 90°-bent crankshaft.
