What better way to celebrate the 20 year debut of Formula 1's most beloved racer than to release a Midas-touch headgear in the form of the Michael Schumacher Gold-Plated Helmet?

The famed racer is celebrating 20 years of being in the business with his self-titled Michael Schumacher Gold-Plated Helmet. It boasts 21-carats of gold plating -- so yes, this is the real deal. The helmet features several graphics which include a dragon with the Chinese letter for strength written below it, a Monster energy drink logo and several other images celebrating the iconic racer. Fans will be able to get their hands on replicas with gold painting on it.

Only 20 replicas will be made available for the public with each numbered and signed by Schumacher. One will be donated to the FIA 'Action for Road Safety' campaign, which focuses on reducing traffic fatalities worldwide.
