Thirteen of the film’s wild, post-apocalyptic cars, including Max Rockatansky’s renowned Interceptor and Furiosa’s War Rig, are now up for sale through Lloyds Auctioneers and Valuers in Australia.
Fox News Autos has learned exclusively that the vehicles are now co-owned by the film’s director and producer, George Miller and Doug Mitchell, who have decided to sell them as they prepare to begin production on the prequel, “Mad Max: Furiosa.”
The operable vehicles will not be auctioned publicly but instead be subject to confidential bids. According to a Lloyd’s spokeswoman, Miller and Mitchell desire to keep the collection intact and have already had three offers to purchase the entire collection, as well as over 50 for individual vehicles, with the majority of interest coming from North America.
The highly altered automobiles and trucks were used in numerous chase sequences in the Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron-led blockbuster, which earned the film six Academy Awards.
Film and automobile enthusiasts will now be able to purchase one of the monstrous vehicles. Film buffs with deep pockets have the opportunity to own a legendary film prop. Australian bidders may inspect any of the vehicles before placing a bid by booking an appointment with Lloyds. Additionally, the auction will be live-streamed, allowing international bidders to participate and monitor the bidding process.
The film included a total of thirteen vehicles from the 2015 Mad Max film. The following is a complete list of available vehicles:
The War Rig: Prime Mover Inc. tanker and ball pig-trailer
The Gigahorse: W16 Cadillac pair
The Doof Wagon
Convoy Car: Elvis
Nux Car: 1932 three-window Chevy Coupe, V8
Razor Cola: 1973 XB Falcon Coupe
Convoy Car: Jag Flamer
Sabre Tooth: F250 Claw Car
Pole Car: Pontiac Surfari with 20′ pole counterweight
Caltrop: El Dorado
Buggy: Rat Rod Chevy
Fire Car: Dodge
Buick: heavy artillery with Hummer weapon mount
All of the vehicles look to feature all of the elements seen in the film. Each of the absurd automobiles has a starting bid of $1 but is expected to fetch thousands, if not millions, of dollars.
The sale is scheduled to take place on the 26th of September and will be live-streamed globally. Visit Lloyds for additional information about the auction.
