Ackermann robot gazebo simulation?

Does anyone know of an existing ackermann robot available for use in gazebo? I require an ackermann robot for a simulation task but don't have the data to construct a replication of my own robot (inertial and dimensions). Just want to throw it on an ackermann robot and see how it goes :)

Thanks, Grant

I made one to teach students about Ackermann kinematics:

The control interface is throttle percentage, brake torque, and steering wheel angle. It attempts to implement as realistic of a dynamic response to those signals as possible. There are some example launch files in the repo to get you started.

Did you have teleop file this model or how can i control the car model
