In a partnership with Top Gear Australia, Ford of Australia has unveiled not one but two Mad Max Interceptor Concepts. The concepts were designed by Ford’s designers for Top Gear Magazine Australia to help celebrate the revival of the Mad Max action movie genre.
It has been more than 30 years since Hollywood director, George Miller’s original Mad Max movie – starring Mel Gibson and a jet black Ford XB coupe – hit movie screens around the world.
“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,” said Chris Svensson, ford Australia’s Melbourne-based Asia, Pacific and Australia Design Director. “We had a special screening of the original movie so they could understand it.”
Between the two concepts, 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 followed by a scaled version, which will be revealed later this year. George Miller, who directed all three Mad Max films, is planning a fourth version of the series called Mad Max 4: Fury Road.
