Minichamps has announced a 1/8 replica of Valentino Rossi’s helmet which he wore at the Assen MotoGP in 2007. This distinctive and colourful helmet was worn to promote the relaunch of the Fiat 500 car – 50 years after it was first launched. The 1950’s became the theme of the livery with a vinyl record on the top of Rossi’s helmet, and a graphic on the back that pictured Valentino with a guitar and a 1950’s haircut. This diecast helmet replica will be available for sale in 2009 in limited numbers and will become a collectors item.

The Minichamps 1:8 Diecast AGV Rossi 2007 Assen Helmet is beautifully designed and captures all the original features seen on the original helmet.
