UGears Grand Prix Car Model

If someone in your life is an avid petrol head and they love the sights, smells and sounds of all things automotive, then we have a range of products that we think they’ll love. Who knows, perhaps its you with petrol running through their veins, but whoever it is, our line of 3D mechanical plywood models will be right up your/their street!


In order to illustrate what we mean, we’re now going to take a look at just a few examples of the automotive brilliance that exists in our mechanical models. They’re so realistic that you’ll almost be able to smell the petrol fumes!


The U-9 Grand Prix Car


This U-9 Grand Prix Car is a serious piece of machinery, complete with hand-crank powered engine, pistons, rubberised wheels and even shock absorbers. It’s a mechanical model of a classic sports car that very much lives up to the name and its 16 valve V8 engine and cork suspension means that when it moves, it moves just like the real thing. It even has a functioning bonnet that can be lifted to display the gorgeously intricate engine inside.


It’s a 3D mechanical model that even got a mention in Top Gear magazine!


The VM-02 Motorbike


Another example of automotive brilliance is the VM-02 Motorbike which features a wide back wheel that keeps it steady when in full flight. Equipped with centre stand, handlebars and a fully functioning rubber band engine, it’s a 3D mechanical model that will delight anyone with an engineering persuasion. It’s also an incredibly realistic model that embodies a spirit of freedom and poetic motion, as you’ll find each time you wind it up. Fancy spending an afternoon putting this amazing model together?


The VM-01 Sports Car


If you prefer your automobiles on the classic side, then you’ll love the VM-01 Sports Car. This exquisite mechanical model can move over 4 metres on a single wind of its rubber band motor and even features a 3-speed transmission with forward, back and idle gears. The winding mechanism itself is hidden within the spare wheel located on the boot, making it one of the most realistic models around. In fact, we’d say it’s a mechanical marvel!


What Makes UGears Different?


We think you’ll agree that our range of 3D mechanical models is pretty impressive, but when you realise that they’re made entirely from responsibly sourced plywood you realise the skill that it took to create them. Not only that, but they move under their own steam, without the need for batteries or any other power source other than a simple rubber band. Our 3D mechanical models are about as eco-friendly as they come, which is great news for the planet with all the stories in the news about plastic pollution.


If you’d like to see more of what we mean, then we’d seriously recommend taking a look around our website, where you’ll find details of all of our wonderful plywood models. We’re available for tips and advice too, so if you need any help choosing the right model for your needs, our team is contactable on +44192 686 4282 whenever you need us.


We really appreciate you taking the time out to read our blog. We hope our models open up a whole new world of engineering fun for you, whether you’re a petrol head or not.
