"Sex is a performance thing." - James Hunt
Pictured Above: Hunt the Shunt was an overwhelming personality both on and off the course, the revered Formula One driver rarely braking for cautions as both competitor and celebrity, eventually retiring and becoming a likewise intrepid yet knowledgeable commentator despite anxiously finishing off a couple bottles of wine his first broadcast. Fearless and thusly prone to accidents, his aggressive style offered up action-packed exploits that garnered both disdain and respect from his peers as well as adulation from a far-flung fanbase, his controlled recklessness winning him a World Championship in 1976. When he passed rather abruptly at the age of 45, friend and longtime rival Niki Lauda said of him, "For me, James was the most charismatic personality who's ever been in Formula One." While Hunt's legendary battles with Lauda was chronicled in Rush, his actual real-life helmet may make for the better collectible.
