Incredible Mad Max Interceptor Car Recreated By Fan

Simply put, movie cars are an integral part of being a car guy. For a lot of us, it is how we became interested in automobiles. They effectively combine the allure of the open road, the untamed power of performance, and, usually, some outrageous stunts that make them larger than life. Some of the most notable being the Bandit’s Trans Am from Smokey and the Bandit, the DeLorean DMC-12 from Back to the Future, or the 1993 Toyota Supra from The Fast and the Furious. All of those cars combine those key features that are necessary to make a movie car unforgettable.

Another excellent addition to that list is undoubtedly the 1973 Ford XB Falcon GT351 from the original Mad Max film. The sinister looking Falcon is a perfect fit for Mel Gibson’s character in the Mad Max movie. It’s so awesome that a man in Michigan, Dale Walter (age 50), has invested a heap of money into recreating an exact replica of his childhood dream ride from the infamous Mad Max film.

Mad About Max

So what makes this car cool enough to spend big bucks building an original looking replica? The Mad Max movie is set in Australia, in a dystopian future, where lawless gangs of bikers terrorize local cities. Mel Gibson plays Mad Max himeself, who, after watching the government release criminals, his partner be murdered, and his wife and son killed, gives up on the law and takes a Police Interceptor (the all-black XB Falcon) to get revenge.

This is no ordinary XB Falcon, though, not by a long shot. The Falcon in the Mad Max film is designed to play off of Gibson’s loose-cannon cop demeanor perfectly. All-black paintwork, a revised front bumper, multiple spoilers, new wheels, large wheel arches, side exhaust, and a massive hood blower are what make the movie car stand out. Although the movie car sported all of these modifications to make it look futuristic none of them offered any actual performance gains for the car.
