The James Bond Car Collection is a fortnightly (later monthly) partwork magazine published by GE Fabbri in the United Kingdom. Each issue is priced at £7.99 (issue 1: £2.99) and comes with a 1:43 model of a car in a diorama from a James Bond film. Most models were produced by Universal Hobbies, although later issues feature models from Ixo. In late 2005/January 2006 the magazine was first tested in two French regions, ending after five issues. These included models made by Eligor and Norev, instead of the Universal Hobbies models used later.
