- 13 vehicles for sale including the iconic ‘Razor Cola’ XB coupe, Nux’s five-window Chev coupe and monstrous ‘War Rig’ 18-wheeler
- For sale as a complete set only, the vehicles were used in George Miller’s Oscar-winning 2015 film
- ‘High Octane Offers – Expressions of Madness Invited’ tender closes 26 September
Some of the wildest cars and trucks ever made are up for sale, with 13 vehicles from George Miller’s Oscar-winning 2015 film Mad Max: Fury Road up for tender by Lloyds.
Part of a fleet of vehicles that were produced for the famous flick, the rat-rodded, post-apocalyptic machines featured in what what was essentially a 120-minute cinematic car chase in the most recent instalment of Australia’s most iconic film franchise. Both Lloyds and production company Kennedy Miller Mitchell have confirmed to Street Machine that these are legitimate vehicles from the film, made even rarer as many other Fury Road cars were destroyed at the completion of filming.
Included in the suitably grimy, machine-gun-toting batch is an iconic 1973 XB ‘V8 Interceptor’ coupe, which has featured in all four Mad Max films and appears in unique bare-metal ‘Razor Cola’ guise for Fury Road; Nux’s 1934 five-window Chev coupe; and the apocalyptic ‘War Rig’ – an 18-wheeler Tatra T815 truck, complete with tanker and pig trailer.
There is a catch, though: you’ll have to buy all 13 of them, the baker’s dozen wrapped up as a complete set to a single buyer, with no plans to split the batch apart to be sold separately.
Lloyds won’t be auctioning the vehicles, instead offering a tender period for expressions of interest, headlined ‘High Octane Offers – Expressions of Madness Invited’, that will end the weekend of 25-26 September.
Mad Max: Fury Road was shot largely in 2012 and predominantly in Namibia, Africa, following unexpected rain that made Broken Hill, where the second instalment was filmed, far too alive to portray a barren, collapsed civilisation.
Importantly, the Fury Road crew produced vehicles that were truly capable of high speed for filming, including the ‘War Rig’, with minimal CGI and a preference for ‘real’ props. Analogue was preferred over digital, and carbonfibre and plastic were shunned in favour of pressed metal.
Cinema buffs may see a resemblance between the exaggerated add-ons of the Fury Road fleet and the dour vehicles in Peter Weir’s 1974 dark comedy, The Cars That Ate Paris.
Expect more wild machinery on the silver screen in 2023, with Miller reportedly working on Mad Max: Furiosa, set to star Aussie Chris Hemsworth.
Lloyds’s ‘High Octane Offers – Expressions of Madness Invited’ will be live-streamed on the weekend of 25-26 September 2021.
