With the release of the relaunched Mad Max just around the corner, the excitement is getting harder to contain. With explosions, stunts, and cars designed by a sadistic person with a huge imagination, this franchise has everything to make our inner-child fill with glee. But I think we can all agree that the vehicles will be the main attraction for the film. In the revamped Mad Max, the main character’s vehicle will go unchanged. A blown 1973 Ford XB Falcon from our crazy Australian cousins will be making its return. So it got us thinking; what would be the perfect car to survive in a post-apocalyptic world? Here’s a list of some of our go-to end of the world cruisers. What vehicle would you use as a blank canvas before you add the bulletproof panels and flamethrowers?
1986 Lamborghini LM002 – Not a lot of people knew that Lamborghini made a Hummer on PED’s but the “Rambo Lambo” sure does look the part, and with a 7.2L marine V12 it goes too.
1970 AMC Rebel Machine – So maybe this pick is based on name alone, but who wants to mess with a guy that drives a 340 HP Rebel Machine in a direful world.
2015 Ford SVT Raptor – If it’s good enough to go to the BAJA 1000 it’s good enough for the end of the world.
1969 Chevrolet El Camino – Want all the horsepower and torque from a Chevelle but with a place to put your gun turret? Then the El Camino is just the car for you.
Any Year Jeep Wrangler – One of the most trusted vehicles of all time, you may not outrun anybody but climbing up rocks would be a great strategy.
1968 Holden Monaro – If we could choose any Australian V8 coupe, we’d choose a little differently than Max.
