Mad Max is back after 30 years. TopGear Australia is holding a vote as to which concept car will go into the movie. Both cars have debuted at AIMS and feature full trims and weapons for the futuristic film.
After polling 10,000 car enthusiasts through TopGear Australia, the two new Mad Max Interceptor 'Next Generation' models are going global. The Australian film's fourth installment Mad Max: Fury Road is due in theaters in 2012 (after a 30 year hiatus), and fans will have the ability to vote between the TopGear designed cars. "It has given our team a lot of scope to really extend their imaginations and come up with some exciting new ideas," said Chris Svensson.
The Melbourne-based Asia, Pacific and Australia Design Director continued "the team has been able to get quite creative because the Mad Max car is not constrained by the normal design parameters imposed by a real-world vehicle." The two futuristic concepts made their debut this past weekend at the Australian International Motor Show in Melbourne. Though the clay concepts were only at about 40 percent of their actual size, they were still impressive nonetheless. The two competing concepts were designed by Nima Nourian and Simon Brook and are fully detailed with weapons and full trim.
Both cars take inspiration from the original film's black 1973 XB Falcon GT coupe-based Interceptor. Director George Miller plans to resurrect the Mad Max series with Fury Road in pre-production now. Starring Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron, it is expected to hit theaters in 2012.
