We Want These Mad Max: Fury Road Model Cars So Badly

I’ve said it before; the Doof Wagon does it for me; I’m a music maniac, and I am a sucker for the repurposed 8 x 8 MAN Missile-Carrier packing heavy Watts cabinets. As if that wasn’t pure madness already, they also had a musician from Hell playing a flame spitting electric guitar. I did, however, just stumbled upon the original scale models that inspired the cars in the movie and they are pure eye candy.

You may have heard that the Interceptor in Mad Max: Fury Road is the same car featured in the previous installments of the post-apocalyptic action film directed and co-written by George Miller. For some, this vehicle is the symbol that defines the petrol madness in the recently released movie.

Others claim that there are plenty of cars to choose from other than the same car Mel Gibson initially drove. Take the Firecar #4, a 1970s Holden HZ UTE trimmed in radial rubber and bleached bone, or the Big Foot, housing a supercharged V8 tamed by GM Turbo 400 automatic transmission driving 66-inch tires.

Maybe you liked the specially designed Peacemaker built by the Howe&Howe brothers more, considering this is a tracked offroader that actually is available for purchase.

Whichever of the post-apocalyptic beasts comes to your likes, you should know they are the result of a lot of hard work and dedication. In fact, Australian artist Peter Pound drew the first sketches about 15 years ago, contributing with over 950 storyboard frames to Mad Max: Fury Road. He also is the Principal Vehicle Designer, which means he created the model cars that became the patterns by which the actual mad cars were built after.

Whether these puppies will ever be replicated and sold as collectibles to Mad Max fans worldwide or they will forever remain locked in the artist’s safe, we don’t know. But we are glad to have stumbled upon them and happy to share them with you.
