2011 Ford Mad Max Concept
Ford Australia, in partnership with TopGear Australia magazine, has
unveiled not one, but two spectacular new Mad Max Interceptors.
The 21st century concepts have been designed by Ford's designers for
TopGear Magazine Australia to help celebrate the revival of the Mad Max
action movie genre.
It is more than 30 years since Hollywood director, George Miller's original
Mad Max movie - starring Mel Gibson and a jet black Ford XB coupe-based
Interceptor - hit movie screens around the world.
Ford Australia's Melbourne-based Asia, Pacific and Australia Design
Director, Chris Svensson, jumped at the chance to design a new Interceptor
and has since thrown the full weight of Ford Australia's Research Centre
behind the project, with stunning results.
"Our entire team was very excited to be involved in this after-hours
project and they approached it with a great deal of enthusiasm - even those
that were too young to remember the first Mad Max movie," Svensson said.
"We had a special screening of the original movie so they could understand
Led by chief designer passenger cars Asia, Pacific and Africa, Todd
Willing, the team created several way-out concepts that pay homage to
styling cues from the original XB Coupe Interceptor.
Out of the concepts two have been chosen by the magazine to feature in the
April issue of TopGear Australia magazine, on sale now, because they take
body design, power sources and weaponry to a futuristic level.
TopGear Australia magazine readers will be invited to vote on which design
Ford should take to the next level.
The winning car will be turned into a clay model, and then a scale version,
which is expected to be revealed later this year.
The two competing designs - by designers Nima Nourian and Simon Brook - are
limitless in their imagination, technology and weaponry. Among the weaponry
is an industrial-strength "taser" mounted to the bonnet to zap bad guys on
bikes straight off the road.
Other futuristic movie features include a titanium-lined body shell to
interrupt police scanners and wheels with extendable spikes to shred enemy
Nourian said his design paid tribute to the 1970s Interceptor, but also
drags the car into the future.
"There are some great scenes in the first movie with high-speed chases and
clashes with the bad guys, and I thought I'd take that one step further,"
he said. "So instead of having weapons and machine guns, we've got an
industrial strength taser that'll zap cars dead and out of the way.
Brook's car was equally threatening. "During high-speed pursuits, the
wheel's inner spokes on my design would pop out and start ripping up other
cars," Brook said. "They'd do some serious damage to other people's
Brook's design takes cues from the current FG Falcon but advances it
further into Armageddon-land, while adding touches of the retro Interceptor
as well. "I wanted to keep it clean and aerodynamic in its essence, but
still brutal and tough."

2015 Ford Atlas on the Road! - Driving, Details, Ride, Start Ups
Today the 2015 Ford Atlas Concept came out to Cars and Coffee Irvine,
making its only public appearance outside of a true car show. It is the
only example of the Atlas built, and is worth over 1 million dollars! The
engine in this truck is the current F150 EcoBoost engine, which is why it is not very
loud. This was an absolutely incredible truck to see, and I even got a ride
in it, thanks to the man driving it (one of the designers). It is limited
to 10 MPH, so the ride was not very exciting, but it was still incredibly
special. It was a childhood dream come true for me. I hope this truck comes
out in a very similar fashion to what is now; I will definitely buy it.

► Ford Interceptor Concept
Building on its legacy of bold muscle cars, Ford is introducing a modern,
all-American sedan concept that combines "Built Ford Tough" attitude with
the sporty elegance of its iconic 1960s sedans.
The Ford Interceptor concept comes equipped with a manual six-speed gearbox
mated to a Ford Racing 5.0-liter V-8 Cammer engine that delivers 400 horsepower and runs
on E-85 ethanol.
"This concept celebrates the best of American muscle, showing customers
what 'modern muscle' is all about," said Peter Horbury, executive director
-- Design, The Americas. "The Interceptor concept is much like a Marine in
dress uniform. He looks smart and elegant but you can see the raw power
that lies beneath."
