You can now buy the cars from Mad Max: Fury Road, if you’re in the mood

Mad Mad Fury Road car auction

The guy with the flame-guitar is sold separately.

With news reaching us on Friday evening that Furiosa, the forthcoming prequel to Mad Max: Fury Road, has been delayed until May of 2024 – yes, 2024 – we’ve decided to focus on the bright side of the wasteland.

Perhaps you’ve saved a bit of money during the pandemic.

Maybe you’ve got an eye on a well-deserved big purchase of some kind.

You might even be thinking – ‘Yeah, it’s time I was driving around in some kind of post-apocalyptic tank, preferably the kind of thing I saw in an incredible chase film six years ago’.

That’s a very, very niche present to give oneself but we have some great news for you – the iconic vehicles from Tom Hardy’s 2015 adventure are up for sale.

The virtual auction, hosted by Australian company Lloyds Auctioneers, boasts 14 separate lots comprising of the genuinely incredible vehicles made for the film.

A related blurb reads thus:

“Blown, super-turbo charged and armed to the teeth with weaponry and War Boys, the machines that outran the end of civilisation have been unearthed in the greatest barn-find ever recorded.

“Nitrous, noxious, and no-nonsense harbingers of hell, marking man’s uncanny ability to wring beauty even from that designed for death and destruction, art from power, meaning from machine.”

I mean, you’re almost definitely going to get stopped by the Gardaí if you’re driving this thing around:

Fury Road 1

Or this lad:

Fury Road 2

You get the idea. Marvellous beasts, all of them.

“Payment can be accepted in any currency, including cryptocurrencies as we outrun the end of civilisation,” says Lloyds, clearly having fun with this, while adding that “nitrous, no-nonsense shipping can be arranged for anywhere in what’s left of the world.”

If you’re interested, hit up the official auction page ahead of the virtual event on Saturday, 25 September.

Let’s just hope you have mad insurance, eh?
