From the “Mad Max: Fury Road” film came all sorts of inspirations. People were getting tattoos, cosplays, parodies and even drink specials inspired by the Mad Max movie. But nothing is more impressive than news from the film itself. As it turns out, thirteen vehicles from the set of Mad Max, such as the war rig tanker truck, will be listed for sale online. Bidders are only going to have two days to really place their secret bids. September 25th and 26th. Also, this is how silent the auction will be: no one else will be aware of how much money is being offered in the tender.
The website that will sell the Mad Max vehicles is actually Lloyds Online via the Australian domain.
Accordingly, the vehicles and their official names are as follows:
- THE WAR RIG
- THE GIGAHORSE
- THE DOOF WAGON
- NUX CAR
- CONVOY CAR : ELVIS
- CONVOY CAR: FLAMER
- RAZOR COLA
- POLE CAR
- SABRE TOOTH
- FIRE CAR
- CALTROP: EL DORADO
- BUGGY: RATROD CHEV
- BUICK: HEAVY ARTILLERY WITH HUMMER WEAPON MOUNT
Furthermore, the copy that they’re selling with is as follows. “Blown, super-turbo charged and armed to the teeth with weaponry and War Boys, the machines that outran the end of civilization have been unearthed in the greatest barn-find ever recorded.”
Of course, the opportunity to own the Mad Max cars may very well be on that of the buyers. But would these vehicles be operable as they were in the movie? Or can we forget about using machine guns, fire flares, and guitars screeching through a hundred speakers?
Finally, the villains of the film may have the best rides. Among them is the Cadillac monster truck called Gigahorse. It was driven by the leader of the Citadel, Immortan Joe (no, that’s not a typo), and it combines two 1959 Cadillacs, as well as two supercharged V8s (made to look like they were turbocharged). And of course, there’s the Doof Wagon, the former missile carrier converted into a rolling wall of speakers. This carried the Doof Warrior, the man shredding with a flame-throwing guitar to amp up the troops as they charge into battle.
