In a surprising move, the apocalyptic Frankenstein cars of Mad Max: Fury Road are going to be auctioned off. We say it’s surprising because it is unusual for movie studios to sell off movie cars they can use for promotions. Props-even ones as large as this, provide a huge marketing source for studios. Later this year Lloyds will be auctioning these hacked desert stormers off.
Everything from the Doof Wagon and Razor Cola, to the sinister Gigahorse, are all hitting the auction. Burning Man participants: are you catching this? Any one of these 13 iconic Hollywood stars would be a highlight of Burning Man parties.
Here is a rundown of each of these demonic vehicles on the chopping block
Gigahorse: W16 Cadillac Pair
Mated to twin-V8 engines are the mangled hulks of two 1959 Cadillac Coupe de Villes. This was the lead vehicle of the Citadel’s gang of vehicles. It’s “likely the first thing you hear and the last thing you see on the Fury Road.
War Rig: Prime Mover Inc. Tanker and Ball Pig-Trailer
Fashioned like a semi-tanker, it’s powered by two V8 engines back-to-back creating a backyard V16 behemoth. The 18-wheel rig is powered by a six-wheel-drive hot rod cab. It was commandeered by the head of the Citadel Furiosa.
For every insurrection you need tunes. The former MAN 8×8 missile carrier was the wheels for Coma the Doof Warrior, riding spread-eagle into the fire.
Razor Cola: 1973 XB Falcon Coupe
This twin-huffed gnarly beast started as the iconic Falcon coupe. It was transformed into the fighter vehicle for Slit. The Razor Cola is probably the most conventional of the vehicles being auctioned.
Nux Car: 1932 Chevy Five-Window Coupe
This old coupe is both turbocharged and nitrous-fed, looking like a hot rod gone bad. This V8 bomber was the ride of the Citadel’s death deliverer Nux.
Elvis Convoy Car
Two canted GMC straight-six engines create an inline 12-cylinder power pump for this 1932 Ford three-window Deuce coupe laying waste on Fury Road.
Convoy Car: Jag Flamer
One of Furiosa’s hacked heaps, this rig blasts napalm-spitting fury and bullets for Immortan Joe.
Pole Car: Pontiac Safari Wagon
Cut down from a rare 1956 Safari surf wagon, it features the infamous 20-foot pole that incorporates a V8 engine as a counterweight for aerial stunts.
F250 Claw Car
Fashioned from an old Ford F250 tow truck, the Claw Car harpoons its prey and stops it in its tracks with its claws biting into the tarmac.
The Citadel’s flame-throwing attack vehicle stolen from Gastown started out as an old, hacked, sedate 1936 Dodge sedan.
For its hellacious troop carrier looks this should be called “Helldorado.” It comes complete with a machine gun for protecting its savage passengers.
Rat Rod Chev
This 1940 Chevy truck features a chopped top and fenderless high boy style. The rusty truck is one of the Bulletfarm’s attack vehicles.
Heavy Artillery with Hummer Weapon Mount
A 1942 Buick sloper sedan with jacked-up duallys and anti-aircraft guns aplenty. This is the personal guard for The Gigahorse and Immortan Joe.
