2011 Ford Mad Max Concept
Ford Australia, in partnership with TopGear Australia magazine, has unveiled not one, but two spectacular new Mad Max Interceptors.
The 21st century concepts have been designed by Ford's designers for TopGear Magazine Australia to help celebrate the revival of the Mad Max action movie genre.
It is more than 30 years since Hollywood director, George Miller's original Mad Max movie - starring Mel Gibson and a jet black Ford XB coupe-based Interceptor - hit movie screens around the world.
Ford Australia's Melbourne-based Asia, Pacific and Australia Design Director, Chris Svensson, jumped at the chance to design a new Interceptor and has since thrown the full weight of Ford Australia's Research Centre behind the project, with stunning results.
"Our entire team was very excited to be involved in this after-hours project and they approached it with a great deal of enthusiasm - even those that were too young to remember the first Mad Max movie," Svensson said. "We had a special screening of the original movie so they could understand it."
Led by chief designer passenger cars Asia, Pacific and Africa, Todd Willing, the team created several way-out concepts that pay homage to styling cues from the original XB Coupe Interceptor.
Out of the concepts two have been chosen by the magazine to feature in the April issue of TopGear Australia magazine, on sale now, because they take body design, power sources and weaponry to a futuristic level.
TopGear Australia magazine readers will be invited to vote on which design Ford should take to the next level.
The winning car will be turned into a clay model, and then a scale version, which is expected to be revealed later this year.
The two competing designs - by designers Nima Nourian and Simon Brook - are limitless in their imagination, technology and weaponry. Among the weaponry is an industrial-strength "taser" mounted to the bonnet to zap bad guys on bikes straight off the road.
Other futuristic movie features include a titanium-lined body shell to interrupt police scanners and wheels with extendable spikes to shred enemy vehicles.
Nourian said his design paid tribute to the 1970s Interceptor, but also drags the car into the future.
"There are some great scenes in the first movie with high-speed chases and clashes with the bad guys, and I thought I'd take that one step further," he said. "So instead of having weapons and machine guns, we've got an industrial strength taser that'll zap cars dead and out of the way.
Brook's car was equally threatening. "During high-speed pursuits, the wheel's inner spokes on my design would pop out and start ripping up other cars," Brook said. "They'd do some serious damage to other people's vehicles."
Brook's design takes cues from the current FG Falcon but advances it further into Armageddon-land, while adding touches of the retro Interceptor as well. "I wanted to keep it clean and aerodynamic in its essence, but still brutal and tough."
Last of the V8 Interceptors-The Road Warrior in 1/24scale
Just some pics of my models, from Mad Max, the Road Warrior. I built two of this model, one with the front intact, as at the start of the movie, and one with the front end smashed off, after Max rams the Landau in the opening chase of the movie. Enjoy!
Blown mud truck
***This video was taken while the truck was still under construction***440 with 671 blower, Dynoed 680 horse@ 6600 RPM. We decided to test out my transmission , the first run I think I accidently bumped it to neutral, second run was clean all the way through 3rd gear. Good thing I dont plan to shift in the mud anyway, its just nice to know things are working properly! I need to upgrade to 70 shafts in the front before I lock it! Heres a couple links to the videos of this in the mud: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GfCS01RZG4g and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SB2W_vj3WfM

So I mounted up a hidden GoPro camera and took my mom for her first ride in my 1250WHP Twin turbo Lamborghini Gallardo by Underground Racing. The result was priceless and I almost feel bad posting this, but you know I had to. Love you Mom! Hahaha
