Jim Bamber “Heroes” collection


Sharing is caring!


The first cars from the new Jim Bamber “Heroes”
collection are now available.

The humorous motorsport figures and cars made famous
by Jim Bamber’s regular cartoons for “Autosport” and
other enthusiast magazines have long been on the gift
lists of kids and adults alike. Now the first cars from his
new “Heroes” Collection have been launched in time for

Fans of the reigning World Drivers’ Champion, Lewis
Hamilton, will delight at the model of him on board his
McLaren Grand Prix car.

Beautifully crafted in a resin and stone mix, it measures
some 16cm in length – an ideal addition to any enthusiast’s
bedroom shelf or lounge mantelpiece. A royalty on every
sale will be paid to the Grand Prix Mechanics Charitable
Trust, founded by three-times world champion Sir Jackie
Stewart OBE.

The much-missed Colin McRae MBE, Britain’s first ever
World Rally Champion, will forever be remembered for his
daring drives at the wheel of a variety of cars, but in
particular the Subaru Impreza (the model in which he won
the 1995 World Rally Championship) and the Ford Focus
(Colin was the first driver to win a World Championship
rally at the wheel of a Focus). Bamber’s depictions of both
are now available.

Of enormous character, the McRae cars comprise two
moulds – the lower chassis with wheels, driver and
co-driver, then the rest of the bodyshell. Once assembled,
the cars are hand-painted and equipped with decals and
windows. A royalty on every sale will be paid to the charity
established in Colin’s name, “The Colin McRae Vision”.

Each of the “Heroes” cars carries a recommended retail
price of £39.99, for which a list of stockists can be found
