STIG helmet from “Top Gear” goes for 3400 pounds!!!!!

Jeremy Clarkson will have a fit! Gorringes just sold the Stigs autographed helmet in their Elton John/Krays sale for 3400 quid! Amazing considering all the interest and the 800 pounds original sale assumption.

Original press release:

The white helmet that is so familiar to fans of motoring show Top Gear is expected to fetch up to £1,200 at an auction in Lewes, East Sussex.

Seller Sophia Vaizey, 30, of Hove, once worked on the show as a production co-ordinator and received the helmet as a leaving present.

The helmet even features The Stig’s signature, as well as that of presenter Richard Hammond and other members of the Top Gear crew.

Mrs Vaizey said: ‘Selling the helmet has been something that has been on my mind for a while.’

Congratulations on the sale… amazing piece but yet again…too rich for my blood!
