Ford Mustang "Pursuit Special" Rendered, Looks Ready for Mad Max

With a Mad Max: Fury Road spin-off called Furiosa reportedly in production, the info on the matter is scarce. And with filming expected to start next year, we can always attempt to live our own fantasy, all with the help of the photo-realistic renderings that have flooded social media.

Forget the plethora of gasoline-fueled hardware we enjoyed in Fury Road (yes, the guitar too) and let's get back to the 1979 original for this one. That motion picture was dominated by the Ford Falcon XB GT "Pursuit Special". Well, the rendering we have here casts the current S550 iteration of the Mustang in that role.

One might point out that while the Australian-built toy's 351ci V8 was assisted by a Weiand 6-71 supercharger, the V8 under the hood of this Mustang comes in N/A form, albeit sporting individual throttle bodies. Then again, there's no reason to fret, since the said blower, which Mad Max could switch on and off, wasn't a functional piece.

The pixel portrait, which comes from digital artist Yasid Oozeear, adds plenty of custom touches to the machine, from the army of aero bits to the custom wheels reminding us of Ken Block's Gymkhana "Hoonicorn" Mustang. Of course, the ground clearance of the toy isn't exactly fit for wasteland adventures, but this could be easily fixed.

Returning to the actual MM universe, franchise director George Miller revealed that two new movies were in the works last year, albeit only if certain legal issues with Warner Bros. would be overcome.

And various reports dating back to last month talked about Miller having held auditions for a Furiosa spin-off, which would focus on the namesake character Charlize Theron played in Fury Road. It's been said that Anya Taylor-Joy (you might know her from The VVitch, Split and Emma) had held an audition via Skype, along with other actors.

Other reports showed that this fifth Mad Max movie has been scheduled to start filming later this year, with shooting reportedly set to take place in Australia this fall.
