If you’re not careful, there is a lot going on that can make you feel depressed right now. Whether it’s the global pandemic, climate change, or whatever else you like, the end of days seems to be on its way. So on the off chance that the apocalypse is imminent, a fleet of cars from Mad Max: Fury Road comes up for auction, perfect for surviving the collapse of civilization.
In an unusual opportunity to own a piece of movie history, a collection of 13 cars that were used in the making of the dystopian movie, are being auctioned off by Lloyds this week. The cars on offer are not just dummy cars used in the set, but the actual cars driven by the main characters in the post-apocalyptic film.
The 2015 version was the fourth installment of the Mad Max movies, starring over half a dozen Hollywood heavyweights, including Charlize Theron, Tom Hardy, Nicholas Hoult, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Zoë Kravitz and more. But while the movie was full of stars, it also came with the power of some pretty epic driving and car chase scenes.

The cars used in the film are a mix of models from the 1950s to mid-1970s (the first Mad Max released in 1979), offering a treasure trove of steam-punk-inspired vehicle modifications. Sale includes the War Rig (the main engine with a tank trailer), the Doof Wagon (which appears to be a modified fire truck), the Interceptor (a 1973 XB Falcon Coupe) and the Jag Flamer (probably a Jaguar Mark vintage VII).
It’s certainly an eclectic collection of cars, none the less with their creative post-apocalyptic modifications, and exciting for the local Australian auto scene. So if you are confident about breaking the law and order in the near future, you can register to bid below. The auction will take place online this Sunday, September 26, from 7 p.m. AEST.
