The lot is valued at 18,000-22,000 ($30,815-37,663) ahead of the event, which will take place at the Vue Westfield in London on October 12.

Schwarzenegger takes the outfit from a biker outside a bar while uttering one of the movie's many quotable lines: "I need your clothes, your boots and your motorcycle".

The film was the first in Hollywood history to have a budget of over $100m and remains a classic of the era.

In 2012, a replica costume sold at Julien's for $8,960.

Other lots include a hoverboard used by Michael J Fox in filming for Back to the Future II(1989), which carries an estimate of 10,000-15,000 ($17,119-25,678).

The lot is one of a number produced for the film, of which some are made from Styrofoam and others from wood. The example offered is one of the latter and carries a higher value due to its greater durability.

A sale at Profiles in History in 2009 saw a hoverboard used byFox achieve $55,000.

The "Pitbull" example used by Thomas Wilson as Biff Tannen made $19,000 at the same auction house in 2008.
