Cameron Manewell just confirmed for me on Facebook that the Mini Cooper was simply called "The Mini". It was originally meant to be crushed under the War Rig but the scene never got filmed.

I assume then that the Monaro is "Firecar #1"; apt as it's definitely the first flamer featured. In fact, upon a rewatch the other night I noticed a small detail that really adds to the world-building. I posted this on Reddit this morning:

"I love the little details. Like when Furiosa rams that flamer Monaro into the storm and it flies up and explodes -- the reason it explodes is because it had a rear-mounted flamethrower, which jets out of control when the car is rammed, and sets the propane tanks on the back of the vehicle alight. You can see it if you watch it frame by frame.

Furthermore, just the little bits of world-building and background even in that particular scene. For instance: the official backstory for that particular Monaro is that it's a flamer on loan to the citadel from Gastown. And the War Boys riding on it aren't as adept with the flamethrower as a crew of Gastown Boys would be.

Hence, before going into the storm, you see the car come up alongside the War Rig and try to shoot flames at the cab, but the flames end up blowing back in their faces and briefly setting them alight, causing the car to peel off and attack from the other side of the War Rig, which sets them up for being nudged into the twister."

No doubt you seen the same Monaro with the CGI bonnet and blower that appears in the same chase scene to remedy a continuity error :ugeek:

Any new info on the "Blitz Buggy" ? Very curious as to what this vehicle is and where we can find it in the movie (or in some behind the scenes pics).

From a message sent to me by "furyroadcars":

The blitz buggy is the one that has the blitz truck body on it. (google "blitz truck" and you'll find plenty of pics). I think you see the blitz buggy quite early on after Furiosa turns off the road to Gas town.

Lysdexia was only seen on the back of the car carrier, it was a little too impractical to drive as it was quite small and had a rear mounted motorbike engine. Quite fast but visibility was poor and it was somewhat unreliable.

If you have a look at this pic: http://s7.postimg.org/f73xs427v/Mad_Max ... recked.jpg

you will see Lysdexia on the bottom level of the truck in the middle facing across the truck (is was quite small), directly behind the wheel.

I've also just noticed the vehicle on the top level at the back, I think is the blitz buggy (there was actually two of them built).

There s not much of the Blitz truck to i.d on this one but going by the headlights and front guards I'm guessing its a Chev CMP Blitz No. 11 cab

Yeah, seems to be a match. The front fenders are a a dead giveaway.
