Details
Reminiscent of the early days of Grand Prix racing, this model from UGEARS evokes the thrill of speed, roar of engines, and wheel to wheel battles before a wildly excited audience.

The bodywork is based on iconic 1930s designs, and under the bonnet you will find a 16 valve V8 engine equipped with a powerful fan. A gear stick and transmission switches the modes between idle, reverse, and race ahead! The astonishing level of detail also extends to sprung suspension and rubberized wheels ensuring smooth but rapid acceleration and a long driving range.

The unique rubber band-powered kit comprises 348 laser-cut plywood pieces that fit together perfectly without tools or glue (approx. 6-7 hours), and is supplied with detailed step-by-step instructions. Measures 14” long when complete.

Featured in BBC Top Gear Magazine. They say: "Forget Lego - this is a build-your-own kit that takes it to the next level. Beautifully crafted with wooden components, U-9 Grand Prix Car model set produces a fully functioning and moving machine with a transmission switching the modes between idle, reverse, and race ahead. Under the bonnet you'll find a delicately crafted 16-valve V8 engine, plus spring-mounted suspension cork and rubberised wheels ensuring smooth but rapid acceleration and a long driving range..."

UGears

Ugears was founded in Ukraine in 2014 to create imaginative wooden model kits that can be assembled without glue. The designs are based on real-life mechanisms – many of which are self-propelled, and all are eye-catching and intriguing to watch.
