DOOF WAGON, MAD MAX: FURY ROAD, 2015

Leisure Wheels (South Africa) - - GEAR -

Yet an­other movie prop that’s 100% func­tional. Ev­ery­thing you see, from the eight wheels to the speak­ers on the sides of the cab, is in work­ing or­der. Di­rec­tor Ge­orge Miller de­manded th­ese ve­hi­cles be driven across Namibia. The Doof War­rior’s gui­tar also re­ally spits fire, in case you were won­der­ing. The Doof Wagon serves as the morale booster in Im­mor­tan Joe’s posse, used to rally the troops and in­tim­i­date op­pos­ing forces. It was built on an 8×8 ar­tillery truck chas­sis and weighs in at just over 15 tons. With only 250kW at its dis­posal, it’s not fast but it does make a grand en­trance.

Price: It was a one off and the cost was never re­vealed. Can it 4×4: Yes. It has eight driven wheels!
