If you are a fan of Triumph Motorcycles and James Bond, this news might be of your interest. EON Production makers of the James Bond flick ‘No Time To Die‘ plan to auction the Triumph Scrambler 1200 XE that was featured in the movie to raise money for some charity. The 25th film in the spy series saw some sky-scraping stunts with some very specific cars and bikes. Triumph Motorcycles and Land Rover were official partners on the project with their particular vehicles. The auction will take place live online on September 28, 2022 with all the earnings going to the UK-based charity Severn Hospice.
In the movie, the Triumph Scrambler 1200 was ridden by assassin Primo (Dali Benssalah), before Agent 007 (Daniel Craig) took the weight down in the opening series. The Scrambler was part of a high-octane hunt scene that was shot in the old city of Matera in Italy, and managed lots of stunts and screen time.

It is remarkable to know that the Scrambler 1200 XE up for auction is a “non-runner,” which means it was exclusively modified for the sequence. As compared to the stock Scrambler, the filmed version saw special amendments especially for the wall jump stunt. Stunt coordinator Lee Morrison worked with the Triumph team to generate the bike while former four-time enduro world champion Paul Edmondson pulled off the stunt.
The Triumph Scrambler 1200 XE up for auction is expected to fetch about 20,000-30,000 Pounds (about Rs. 18-27 lakh), which is far less than a few of the other cars that are up for auction from the Bond film. The auction website also lists the Aston Martin DB5 stunt car built the manufacturer especially for the film and is predictable to fetch about 1.5-2 million Pounds (about Rs. 14-18 crore). The Aston Martin V8 is also on the list with an estimation of 500,000-700,000 Pounds (about Rs. 4.61-6.46 crore), while the Land Rover Defender 110 is predictable to fetch about 300,000-500,000 (about Rs. 2.7-4.6 crore).
