For the fans of vintage race cars and auto race track regulars Ugears presents the latest intriguing addition to its vehicle collection: Ugears U-9 Grand Prix Car. Inspired by the 20th century early race cars and the first Gran Prix race car, Ugears created this new exciting mechanical model. The oblong body shape, exposed radiator grille, drive belt located on the outside of the car and many other eccentric details resemble all the features of the race vehicles participated in the very first Grand Prix race that took place in Italy at the beginning of 20th century.
HOW UGEARS U-9 GRAND PRIX CAR WORKS
Ugears U-9 Grand Prix race car features a fully functioning 16 valve V8 engine, link rod and transmission that switches the modes from idle to reverse and to forward. It has a spring-suspended fork and wheels with rubberized genuine sports tires that ensure a rapid acceleration, yet smooth ride. Like all Ugears vehicles models U-9 is set in motion by a rubber-band wind up motor. Simply crank up a handle located in the front of the model and watch it race a distance up to 10 meters.
