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.

This item is beautiful and the delivery was quick. Now I just have to wait for my dad to open it as his Christmas present

Piece of art but not functional

Overall very good quality even if some parts are fragile. Some instructions are also a bit unclear. After completing, the "forward gear" poorly works (too much friction in my opinion, even if my model is as good as a candle because of the amount of wax I applied). The neutral and reverse modes simply don't work. Thus, I think the gear mechanism is to remake. Contrariwise, it's a good looking piece of art.
