UGears U-9 Grand Prix Car Wooden Model (DIY Building Kit) Hand-Crank Powered Vehicle w/ Working Pistons, Wheels, Shocks | Functional, Authentic Racing Design

"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..." Top Gear March 2018

Entering into this racing season, UGEARS presents its latest creation and a new fascinating addition to its car fleet: U-9 Grand Prix Car. The thrill of speed, roar of engines, wheel to wheel battles and shiny frames flashing before the eyes of wildly excited audience of the early car races as well as the historical heritage of the first Grand Prix and its impact on the twentieth century automobile industry inspired UGEARS to create this new amazing model and share our passion with you.


Model U-9 recreates iconic design and the magnificent and imposing appearance of Grand Prix winner models from drive shaft to spare wheel.

Under the hood of this new model you will find a 16 valve V8 engine equipped with a powerful fan. Your new vehicle has a link rod and a transmission switching the modes between idle, reverse, and race ahead, baby!

The U-9 has a spring-suspended fork and rubberized wheels  - genuine sport tyres - ensuring  smooth but rapid acceleration and a long driving range.

The design of this beauty is based on the racing-sports cars that participated in the very first Grand Prix race that had taken place in Italy back in the early 20th century. Adopting the sleek flowing lines of the famous racing cars-champions, UGEARS engineers and designers gave this new model an exquisite and truly elegant “old-school” appearance highlighted with a drive belt on the outside of the car and other peculiar design elements.

The Oblong shape coupled with the bold style of the radiator grille is meant to bring you the feeling of the dawning age of car racing.

Great model!

It was a gift for my dad and he loved it! He built it in 2 days and it looks awesome! Really nice car with mobile parts. Really good gift for all those motor heads!

Gran Prix car

As a disabled 90 year old I am somewhat restricted with handling the smaller parts but it is progressing slowly. It certainly gives me a challenge, but very entertaining.


Not delivered

Item never made it to me. Just got a message that it was returned. No one even called me. Product looks cool though, so will try to order again

U-9 Grand Prix Car

Bought this as a birthday gift for my husband and he is very pleased with it. Unfortunately due to current circumstances, he will not be in a position to build it for a few months yet, but says it looks incredibly well made and will be very pleased if it does actually work as described. Will try to review further at a later date.
