After being announced back in March, two Ford Mad Max Interceptor concepts made their world debut at the Australian International Motor Show in Melbourne. The two concepts were designed by Ford Australia in cooperation with Top Gear Australia in order to celebrate the revival of the Mad Max action movie genre.

"We’re delighted that both our readers and the social web community have warmed to the car," TopGear Australia Editor, Stephen Corby, said. "The level of interest has really taken us by surprise, particularly with on-line media."

The company presented two 40% size clay models weighing in at around 130 kg (286 lbs) and dressed to the nines with all of the detailing and trim highlights. The two concepts were designed by Nima Nourian and Simon Brook and use industrial-strength weaponry like "tasers" mounted in the front of the cars to zap bad guys on bikes straight off the road. Other futuristic movie features include a titanium-lined body shell to interrupt police scanners and wheels with extendable spikes to shred enemy vehicles.

"It has given our team a lot of scope to really extend their imaginations 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."

I just noticed that it was oozing with angst and aggressiveness because on its front design and headlights even on its sleek black body paint, but I wonder if what will be the interior of this one will look like.

The Mad Max interceptors are really good. They are very creative on designing such cars. Good for Ford that they are now handling the Mad Max brothers. They will surely be more famous because of that.

I think it will put this in production since its concepts are from Mad Max. Maybe they will make more twists with this car that’s why need more time. For sure, this will be a big one.

At last! the Mad Max has finally come to us. It reminds me of the late film Mad Max. Anyway, I love the way how they design the mags and its front. A true wrecker.

I was thinking if they have planned to make this as production vehicle or not...Four months is quite long enough for them to start its production.

I’ve been wondering why they’re still waiting for to make a production version of this vehicle. I would love to see this concept drive along the road. BTW, I wonder what would be its engine performance.
