Build a fully functional, motorised model of a V8 petrol engine. This model is a greatly simplified version of a real V8 car engine featuring realistic V8 sound and illuminating spark plugs. Contains over 250 pieces and all that you need to assemble the model. Comes with a Haynes style manual giving you step by step instruction as well as interesting information about V8 engines. 
To help you discover how internal combustion engines work a special augmented reality App is available via your smart phone. This creates an interactive experience with the finished model so you can see an exploded view of the engine with 5 animations of key components and detailed descriptions of 11 different engine parts plus the engine sound.

Kit includes free access to the App, accessible from both the Apple and Google Play Stores.
