Description

There are replicas, and then there are ‘exact’ replicas. An ‘exact’ replica is made by the same craftsmen, in the same way the original was made. Using the same materials, the same methods, the same tools in the exact same way. The result is a copy, an exact copy of the original, often referred to as ‘museum quality’; which this one is, having been part of the ‘Ferrari: Under the Skin’ exhibition at the Design Museum in London and around the world over the last two years.

John Surtees was truly unique in motorsport. Riding for the celebrated MV Agusta team, he won seven World Championships between 1956 and 1960. Then – with nothing left to prove – he made the transition from two wheels to four, winning the Formula One World Championship with Ferrari in 1964. To this day his feat of winning World Championships on two and four wheels remains unparalleled.

This is an exact replica of the helmet made for John Surtees, by Everoak in the 1960s, and was made in direct comparison to the genuine helmet owned by the Surtees family.

The result is stunning, because it looks and feels like the original, it even smells like the original. Reproducing John’s helmet requires many man hours and skill by a master craftsman, and Bill Vero has been making helmets all his life, just the way his father and his father’s father did, so this replica is the best you will get, in the world.

Contructed from a period shell, hand painted and aged, hand stitched canvas and leather net, this stunning helmet will be the centre piece of any helmet collection – one of the most iconic helmets, as worn by the 1964 Ferrari Formula 1 World Champion.
