Buy James Hunt's Formula One helmet

James Hunt may have been the world's greatest partier, but he wasn't too shabby a racer, either, winning the 1976 Formula 1 World Championship after a season-long battle with Nikki Lauda that inspired the movie Rush. Now, his helmet from the 1978 season is up for auction. Wear it, and no one will know for certain that you're not Chris Hemsworth. That's a good thing if you wanna party like Hunt.

Fellow world champion racer/partier Kimi Raikkonen has twice worn a replica Hunt helmet during races, paying homage to the man who set the bar so high: a fitting tribute to a larger-than-life character who left us all too soon.
