Last weekend, 2 August, the global charity auction of an iconic Triumph Scrambler ridden by action hero Chris Pratt in Jurassic World closed after ten days and 90 bids.
The bespoke bike, which was featured racing alongside Raptors in this summer’s blockbuster is a one-off piece of movie history and raised $43,752 or £28,000 in aid of those battling Prostate Cancer, via Triumph’s official charity partner The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride.
The bike’s new owner joins a very exclusive club as just 3 bikes were made for the filming of Jurassic World, with the other 2 owned by Chris Pratt and Triumph.
The Scrambler is based on the brand’s iconic Bonneville model, combining classic off-road influences with the Hinckley firm’s signature twin cylinder, 865cc engine. Triumph is a long-standing partner to Hollywood films, and superstars from Steve McQueen, Marlon Brando and more recently Bradley Cooper, George Clooney and Ryan Reynolds.
