Model builders who love the Grand Prix and enjoy dreaming of the thrill of speed and power that comes with the Grand Prix circuit are a perfect match for UGears Grand Prix Car models.
One of the highlights of UGears models is that they utilize gears and mechanisms. Most modern devices have such tiny mechanisms that you may miss out on how fascinating moving gears can be. If you are interested in mechanics, then the UGears U-9 Grand Prix car model will provide you with special insight into moving gears, as these models come to life with working gears and a beautiful structure.
This model recreates the V8 engine and fan and has 16 functional valves. To wind it, you crank the hand crank in the front. It has a link rod and transmission that switches between reverse, idle and forward. In addition, there are a spring-suspended fork and rubberized wheels for smooth and quick movement.
The model is designed after the first Grand Prix race cars, and UGears designers created a sleek-lined, exquisite model reminiscent of early 20th-century Italy. It is a beautiful, classic car with a highlighted drive belt on the outside and other unique elements. If you’re ready to relive the old days of racing, this model’s oblong shape and radiator grille will bring you back in time to the dawn of racing.
The details are a high quality, as the models are outlined with a CNC laser cutter. The plywood board has a distinct, pleasant and earthy smell.
