For Sale: The War Rig, the Doof Wagon, and 11 Other Cars From Mad Max: Fury Road
If one of the many thoughts you had while watching 2015’s Mad Max: Fury Road was “Wow, I wish I owned one of those wicked hot rods,” boy, do we have some exciting news for you. As UPROXX reports, 13 of the vehicles are now at auction.
You could cosplay Charlize Theron’s Furiosa this Halloween with her actual 18-wheeler: a cross between a Tatra and Chevy Fleetmaster known as “The War Rig.” Or you could run errands in Nux’s (Nicholas Hoult) 1932 Chevrolet coupe, complete with the customized doll’s-head steering wheel.
The Doof Warrior’s Doof Wagon might be a little too unwieldy for a grocery run, but its towering sculpture of speakers and subwoofers makes it a good option for a death metal parade (which, in a way, is what the Doof Warrior used it for). According to Bloomberg’s Hannah Elliott, who spoke with production designer Colin Gibson about the cars in 2015, the Doof Wagon “was meant to rally the troops in the way drummers marched with soldiers in ancient battles.”
Each one of these tricked-out (and somewhat terrifying) automobiles is quite a sight on its own, and seeing the entire fleet together would be immeasurably formidable. Apparently, that’s exactly what Mad Max writer/director/producer George Miller and producer Doug Mitchell, who are selling the cars, hope will happen: A spokesperson for Lloyds, the Australia-based auction house selling the vehicles, told Fox News Auto that the two want all 13 vehicles to stay together. As of earlier today, September 10, three people have submitted offers for the whole lot; another 50 or so have bid on single cars.
Bidding for this auction happens privately, by email or phone call, so we won’t know how much they’re going for until they’ve already gone. If you want to toss your hat in the ring, you can do so through September 26. For more details, click here. (Just keep in mind, the guzzolene is sold separately.)
