U-9 Grand Prix Car

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.

Grand Prix Car

This is the second model I've built (that tells you something) and like the first once you get into the swing of things, they were great to build. Only once thinking I had a problem but on looking further forward the booklet explained it. I'm now awaiting model three.

cranking handle

unable to use cranking handle as the aperture hole is to small or the protruding lugs to short building it was taxing but very well designed booklet self explanatory but not yet able to try out because of cranking handle also lost part number 63 from steering column KGP
