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  – it’s all there, in UGEARS’ fascinating U-9 Grand Prix Car based on iconic designs of the Golden Age of the automobile industry at the beginning of the XX century.

The mechanisms hidden inside the devices we use in our lives are made so tiny these days that people became deprived of a possibility to behold of the magic of moving gears.  The interest in real mechanics will always be there urging us to seek its propulsion source and take a look inside. People enjoy assembling models that come to life in their hands showing the fascinating workings of gears in a beautiful articulated structure.

Model U-9 recreates 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 V8 engine equipped with a powerful fan and 16 fully functioning valves. To wind it up just use the hand crank in its front. 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 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 old Formula One prototypes, 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.

A model kit has everything you might need for assembly. The quality of the details is very high – the parts of the models are outlined with a CNC laser cutter on a plywood board. The first thing you notice when opening the box is a pleasant smell of wood. It is eco-friendly and healthy.  The details have to be pulled out of the boards and assembled to create a complete model. The car is using Ugears signature “know how” that allows implementing assembly without glue or any additional tools. Just follow the detailed step-by-step illustrated manual with instructions in 10 languages to complete your model.

Great project!

Excellent project to keep hands and mind busy! It's amazing what laser cut material and mechanical designs can be done for wood models like the U9 Grand Prix car and others. The quality of the wood is very good, easy punch out parts and assembly. The assembly manual is clear step by step instructions. The engine assembly is rubber powered with pistons, intake and exhaust valves that actually move! I will definitely look into starting another UGears project!

A delight from start to finish.

Although the U-9 has 100 fewer parts than the VM-01 it is just a intricate and doesn't need you to tie tiny rubber bands. Top quality material, masterful design, a challenge to build - what more can I say except I'll be buying more kits from Ugears.
