United States Mad Max Born by Dodge Challenger Hellcat

United State crazy max One fan used a Dodge Challenger Hellcat as the platform for his “V8 Interceptor,” a tribute to Mel Gibson’s iconic Falcon XP Coupe in the original 1979 movie.


A car enthusiast praised the United States mad max’s ‘V8 Interceptor’ Ford Falcon XB Coupe by converting a Dodge Challenger Hellcat – powered by a supercharged V8 engine – into a special Pursuit Special.

Inspired by the 1979 Australian classic film crazy maxFlorida man Robert Selby chose the modern Ford Falcon Coupe in the US as the star car in his build – a 594 kW, supercharged 6.2-liter V8 Dodge Challenger Hellcat.

Nicknamed the “Madcat,” Selby outfitted the Dodge Challenger with a number of parts similar to those on the 1973 Ford Falcon “V8 Interceptor.”



The owner purchased a front bumper that looked like a “Concorde” body kit from the original Mad Max movie “Pursuit Special.”

Fun fact: The original Mad Max movie car was designed by Australian Peter Arcadipan, who became a designer at Mercedes-Benz in Germany.

The black body and dark wheels are obvious links to the original cinematic vehicle.



However, the “supercharger” that comes out of the hood of the Dodge Challenger Hellcat is just for show.

In front of the rear wheels are four exhaust pipes – on each side of the car – that pay tribute to the movie’s car, though it’s unclear if these work or are just for show.

The body shape of the Dodge Challenger Coupe may resemble the Falcon XP, but for Mr. Selby, that’s not enough.



The bodywork of the 1970 Ford Torino Coupe is in the Florida man’s backyard, the back of which Selby plans to graft the Madcats, aiming to recreate the Falcon chassis.

Mr. Selby created a page on the social media platform Facebook For those who wish to trace the construction process of Madcat, as well as his work honoring vehicles from Too badlike Walter White’s Pontiac Aztec and Fleetwood Pounder RV’s lab turned meth.
