Once again, Ugears returns to everybody’s favourite classics and introduces an exquisitely elegant and vigorously fast Roadster VM-01 sports car.
Your adventure begins when you open the box with your new model kit from Ugears. This is when you will experience the pleasant smell of natural wood that will stay with you all the way through the process of assembly, testing and play. Building the model is fascinating and exciting: with your own hands you will put plywood details together to create a 3-dimensional moving mechanical marvel.
However, assembly is just a part of the fun: when the Roadster is finished you will definitely want to see what it is capable of and take it for a test-drive. Even when you get to the curb and are ready to put your model away, we would recommend to park it in a well-visible place in your house or office. Classic shapes and iconic Ugears’ design makes your Roadster a wonderful complement to any interior.
The unique charisma of the model comes from both its outstanding technical characteristics and detailed realistic retro-design. The clever combination of the plywood elements of different thickness – 4 and 2 mm – ensures that the motorcar’s body looks streamlined and clear. Open the hood to see the powerful V8 engine and watch the moving valves.
Your sports car has a transmission that switches it in three modes: forward, back, and idle. The driving direction can be adjusted with the steering wheel. The suspension of the front wheels makes the Roadster look even more realistic.
With a powerful rubber band motor, the car covers up to four meters in one winding. The winding key is designed to look like a spare wheel at the rear of the Roadster.
The wood sports car has a lot to spark your imagination but we suggest you discover more exciting features of this extraordinary model by yourself. Take your friends and family on an exciting ride and enjoy your fun time with the Ugears’ Roadster VM-01 model.
The Roadster VM-01 model kit is made of sustainably sourced high grade wood and has everything you might need for assembly. The quality of the parts is top-notch: a laser method is used for cutting items from a plywood board that provides precise hairline cuts. The details have to be pulled out of the boards and assembled to create a complete model.
Like all other Ugears models, the Roadster comes with step-by-step, full-color, truly easy to follow instructions in 11 languages (Ukrainian, English, German, French, Polish, Spanish, Russian, Turkish, Italian, Chinese and Korean) and requires neither glue nor special tools to be fully assembled into functional working sports car.
