Corgi The Great Escape - Triumph TR6 Trophy (Weathered) CC08501 1:12

Motorbike 1:12 Scale

The Great Escape - Triumph TR6 Trophy (Weathered)

Celebrating the 60th anniversary of one of the greatest motorcycle chases ever created in film, our Great Escape Triumph TR6 Trophy is an almost exact replica of that famous bike. The actual motorcycle now sits in the Triumph Motorcycles Factory Visitor Experience in Hinckley, but our 1:12 scale die-cast representation is a must-have for fans of the epic war film.

Movie Icon

The tense scene is one of the most iconic in Hollywood, shot 60 years ago and continuing to delight film fans to this day. The Triumph itself was sold to a farmer, who used it to herd cattle before abandoning it in a barn.

In the Great Escape, after escaping the maximum-security unit at Stalag Luft III, prisoner of war Captain Virgil Hilts steals a German army motorcycle and makes his bid for freedom. The modified Triumph Trophy TR6 races to the Swiss border with German soldiers in pursuit. After it effortlessly clears one barbed wire fence, soldiers shoot down the motorcycle and capture Hilts again.

New Tooling

Our 1:12 scale die-cast Triumph TR6 Trophy features brand-new tooling for this special model. It is much lighter than previous Corgi motorcycles and shows more of its internal structure. Collectors will adore the impressive wiring and piping detail.

The bike used in the film didn’t have a kickstand, so our scale replica doesn’t either. Instead, it sits atop an ammunition box, adding a nice touch to this weathered war-time design.

Product Details

Based upon true events during the Second World War, ‘The Great Escape’ tells the incredible story of the inmates of the German Prisoner of War camp Stalag Luft III, a maximum-security prison built to contain captured Allied Air Force personnel who had consistently escaped other less secure facilities. Intent on escaping while simultaneously diverting critical German resources away from the frontlines, the POWs audaciously tunnel beneath the fences of the camp towards the forest beyond, and then flee for freedom.

Among the 76 POWs to make it out is Captain Virgil Hilts, otherwise known as ‘The Cooler King’, a frequent escapee who is consistently recaptured and placed in solitary confinement. During the escape, Hilts steals a German army motorcycle and heads for the German-Swiss border, with German soldiers in pursuit.

He uses the bike to jump one of the barbed wire fences at the border, but is intercepted by the soldiers before he can make his final escape. 73 of the 76 escapees are recaptured, with 50 of them executed on the personal orders of Adolf Hitler. Meanwhile, Hilts is returned to the cooler where he begins to plan another escape.

Among the most iconic motorcycles to ever grace the silver screen, the bike seen in The Great Escape is a modified Triumph Trophy TR6, chosen for its impressive performance and dressed to resemble a period German motorcycle. Production for the film took place on location in Germany, with the motorcycle chase sequences filmed in meadows around the town of Füssen in Bavaria. The famous moment when the motorcycle leaps the barbed wire border fences was performed by stuntman and professional off-road racer Bud Ekins.

After filming, the motorcycle was sold to a local farmer who used it to herd livestock, but it later languished in a barn for decades. It was rediscovered by Triumph collector Dick Shepherd, who painstakingly restored the unique bike to its 1962 filming specification with 95% of the original parts retained. In 2017, this legendary Triumph motorcycle was placed on display at the Triumph Factory Visitor Experience in Hinckley, UK.

The products arrived in a very solid box, were superbly packed allowing good protection with minimal material used.
Fabulous! Five stars!
Shame about Parcel Force delivery though. Tracked to be delivered on one day. Not delivered. No reason given. Arrived a day late when it wasn't expected. Parcel Force zero stars!

I found these guys through their ebay page about a year ago and I really like their selection of products. Slickshifts appear to stock the better quality stuff such as gyeon, angelwax, soft99, ik sprayers. Having gone through so many different brands I have to say between Gyeon and soft99 make up the majority of my kit and these guys are one of the best suppliers of these brands so if I need to top up on stuff, I just come straight here now :) Prices are great and delivery is very quick too. Keep up the good work!
