An auction house in Australia is inviting “expressions of madness” for 13 vehicles used in the production of Mad Max: Fury Road
Only 88 of these survived filming, and it’s likely a decent number of those were broken up. 13 of the vehicles definitely still exist, however, as they’ve just come up for sale in Australia via Lloyd’s Classic Car Auctions.
The winning bidder will be in possession of War Rig (below), a twin V8 hot rod/lorry mash-up with six-wheel drive that was central to the plot. Max Rockatansky’s 1973 XB Falcon Coupe (best thought of as a ‘reborn’ version of ‘Pursuit Special’ from the original Mad Max films) is there too, complete with a double supercharger assembly poking out of the bonnet.
A 1932 Chevrolet Coupe driven by Nux (Nicholas Hoult) is part of the collection, as is ‘The Gigahorse’, made by joining together a pair of 1959 Cadillac Coupe de Villes. Further reinforcing the idea that two of everything seems to be best in the Mad Max world is ‘Elvis’, a 1930s three-window coupe complete with two V6s mounted end-to-end to create a makeshift V6.
A Dodge ‘fire car’ gets its name from an onboard flamethrower, while the ‘Caltrop’ Cadillac El Dorado is described as “A presidential assassination in search of a grassy knoll”. Lovely. Finally, there’s ‘Buggy’, a rat rodded Chevrolet with a sub-machine gun on its roof.
“Shipping can be arranged for anywhere in what’s left of the world,” Lloyds says, so these unique vehicles could end up anywhere. We’ll be fascinated to see what they do next.
