Collection on Mercedes-Benz history was published by Altaya in France 50 issues with bonus gifts were issued between August 2007 and July 2009. Models were made by IXO. In non-French speaking areas the series is often refered to as “Mercedes-Benz Collection”. The series was also released in Portugal. One of the free gifts for the subscribers was the 3-cars set of vintage Mercedes-Benz Grand Prix cars – W125 (1937), W154 (1938) and W196 (1954),all three mounted on a single display base.

50-issues Altaya Mercedes Collection were also released in Spain (La Leyenda Mercedes-Benz) in 2007 – 2009 and Portugal (Colleccao Mercedes-Benz) in 2009-2011.

In 2013 – 2016 this series was used as a basis for a much larger collection (80 models) issued by DeAgostini in Germany and Austria. All the models shared between French and German series were the same, even retaining the colors, the only differences being and  the text on the display bases for several models.
