2 Chainz Checks Out Mad Max Car Built by WCC to Promote the Game

There's no question that Mad Max is the biggest movie of 2015 so far. The non-stop action had audiences sitting on the edge of their seats, and that includes the sort of people who have deep pockets.

Unfortunately, the Mad Max car that West Coast Customs built doesn't belong to a rock star or rapper. It was commissioned by Avalanche Studios and Warner Bros to promote the Mad Max video game.

The game works a little different to the movie. First of all, you don't look like Tom Hardy, and you don't drive the War Rig. Instead, the protagonist enters Wasteland and has to customize a vehicle called the Magnum Opus.

To make a real world version of that, West Coast Customs took a Ford Ranger chassis and mounted an old 70s Maverick coupe body on top. We love the grinder marks on the bare metal body, but that will rust from something as minor as a sweaty palm.

As impressive as WCC's Mad Max car is, the movie had a lot more to offer. Basically, every vehicle you saw on screen was real, and usually there was more than one of each because of the damage sustained. Our favorites include the shiny Big Foot and the Doof Wagon, an army truck turned into a mobile concert.

It's interesting how somebody like 2 Chainz has become the official presenter for GQ Magazine. This 21st-century type of gentleman wears a shirt with Playboy logos, a chain as thick as a prop shaft and gold glasses that are supposed to be worth $50,000.

The Mad Max game is going to come out on September 1st and be available for the PS4, Xbox One and PC.
