In 1981 “Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior”, two years after the events of “Mad Max”, Max Rockatansky still using the V8 Interceptor as his primary vehicle, which also likely serves as his home, due to his nomadic nature.
Actually this car was made for movie vehicle based on 1973 Ford Falcon XB GT. The once pristine V8 Interceptor is now showing wear and tear, due to the harsh conditions of the wasteland. The vehicle was modified in order to become better suited for traversing the barren wastelands.
Two massive fuel tanks were added to allow the car to travel greater distances. The boot door has been removed in order to accommodate them. This led to the car losing one of its spoilers.
Max also had to add a new fuel gauge. The front bumper was removed to allow the vehicle to travel off road with less hindrance. The passenger seat was removed, and a custom seat for Max’s dog was installed on the passenger door.
Max rigged the tanks to explode via booby trap hidden under the car. Also he had several weapons hidden within and even outside the car.
