The auction includes several vehicles that appeared in the fourth part of the “Mad Max” series by George Miller, including the huge “War Rig” tanker driven by Charlize Theron, or the “Razer Cola”, a Ford Falcon XP car.
The auction is attracting worldwide interest, especially from the casinos of Las Vegas or the Burning Man Festival in the United States.
Geoff McCue, auto expert at Lloyd’s Auctions, said it was difficult to put an estimate on the collection, although he insisted he refused to sell it “at a low price”.
As the auction ends on Sunday, owners of the 13 cars are required to be sold together in order to preserve part of the cinema’s history.
Although none of these cars would be allowed on the roads, McCue ruled out that the police would stop any of these mechanical “monsters”, including the Gigahorse, a 1959 Cadillac Deauville that barely fits its temporary headquarters in a Sydney warehouse. .
The success of the film cemented the prominence of the Australian action series, which starred Mel Gibson in its first parts in 1979.
