Cover of the Issue of the Italian Edition

Spanish publishing house RBA in collaboration with the Italian publisher Fabbri has published and distributed the first magazine collection specialized to Formula 1. At first Italian, Spanish and Portuguese editions were distributed by subscription and in kiosks in 2001-2002. Original name of the Italian edition was Auto da Corsa. I Miti della Formula 1. Spanish collection was called Grand Prix. Mitos de la Formula 1. The series consisted of 40 issues. The diecast models were manufactured by IXO (except of Ferrari F1-2000 which was made by Hot Wheels), but were marked as RBA Collectibles.   Cars were in plastic boxes with the car name and year indicated on the base. Models represented  classic F1 cars from 1950 to 2000 with many champion’s bolides. Volumes were distributed biweekly in a set of a 1:43 diecast model and a magazine. In Italy magazines had two editions’ brands on the title page (RBA and Fabbri) while in Spain only RBA label was displayed. In 2003-2004 RBA Collection was also on sale in France and, probably in some other European countries. French edition was called Grand Prix. Legendes de la Formule 1 and was distributed under RBA / Fabbri brands. In UK the collection was distributed by Atlas Editions under the name Grand Prix. Legends of Formula 1. Later in 2010s part of RBA Collection was reissued under the banner Leyendas de la Formula Uno (Legends of Formula One) in Spain and Latin America.
