Remember that cool Scrambler 1200 XE that British actor Daniel Craig used to make the iconic wll jump in the new action flick, “No Time to Die” (2022) – the one that cost the film crew 8,400 gallons of coca cola?
Well, now that the dust has settled and the movie’s archived as the highest-grossing film for 2021, she’s up for auction – and while she may not reap as high a figure as the neighboring podium’s Aston Martin DB5 stunt car, we still expect the bike to clock in between £20,000 and £30,000.
“The bike…joins seven other Bond vehicles from the film in a two-part event to celebrate 60 years of the secret agent on the silver screen,” states MCN.
“The bike is the actual Scrambler 1200 XE provided in partnership with Triumph and ridden first by assassin Primo (actor Dali Benssalah) and then Bond (Daniel Craig) in the Italian medieval city of Matera.”
The movie has inspired a Bond-themed Tiger 900 Rally Pro for Triumph’s ranks, with other influenced marques including the likes of BSA and BMW.
“No Time to Die” was a record-breaking film; scenes like the movie’s climactic end won ‘most high explosives detonated in a single film take’ (via Guinness World Records), and contributed to the mind-boggling $774 million USD grossed, making the Bond film the fourth-highest-grossing for 2021.
We look forward to seeing which bikes Bond picks up next; for other related news, be sure to check back here at MBW, and as ever – stay safe on the twisties.
