That isn't double vision you're experiencing, it's the Gigahorse. Said to be the "hero car" in Mad Max: Fury Road, the ride, snapped by a Moviehole.net reader, is a double-bodied '59 Cadillac with two supercharged V8s connected by a planetary gear, sitting on a monster-truck chassis and sporting a four-bladed cow catcher. With Charlize Theron as Furiosa alongside Tom Hardy as Mad Max, it's unknown which hero the Gigahorse might serve but it's certainly bat**** crazy enough for The Mad One.

Production is setting up in Namibia (because the Aussie outback has gotten too green, according the director), and peeks at the movie's other rides have shown at least one other car as big as a semi, a couple of buggies and, of course, enough tractor-trailers to remake Convoy. A stuntman said the movie would have "130 cars and bikes and 198 stunts."

Speaking of Theron, last November George Miller said he'd film Fury Road and Mad Max: Furiosa (Mad Maxes 4 and 5, essentially) back-to-back and that production could take 2.5 years, so it might be some time before we see the Gigahorse in the local multiplex.

      So wait, is gas still incredibly rare and precious in these movies? Because that looks, uh, mildly inefficient.

        That was my response. The recurring theme of the Mad Max movies (save the first one maybe) was that society had devolved into factions and death because of the struggle for gas. The vehicles were creative rat rods of all types to support that premise. This looks like a an over-the-top, weird mash-up made to look like a rat rod, but is really just being big and over-the-top. It's kind of Mad Max meets the Fast and the Furious.

      By the look of this thing, the producers had hoped to cast Vin Diesel as Mad Max.

      I hate the entertainment industry for this, desecrating classic cars like this.

        You really think those are real Cadillac bodies?

          I don't know for sure, but I would not put it past them, especially when factoring in all of the millions of dollars that go into making a film.

      Add the Gigahorse and Carzilla and you'd have a great attraction for a demolition derby halftime show on a Saturday night. As far as something like this for the new Max film, Gigahorse and Charlize Theron? Give me a break.

      No Mel Gibson, no Mad Max. This might as well be "Death Race"

        Mel is a geezer, and would be just as pathetic as Harrison Ford wheezing through Crystal Skull. Tom Hardy is a better actor (brilliant in Bronson, which you should watch IMMEDIATELY), is far more stable than mental Mel, and might attract an audience under the age of 40, unlike Grandpa Gibson.

      ...I dunno I dug the hell out of that pickup truck that was shown years ago but this as the Hero car? not my cup of tea. One of the things I liked about the old films was the idea that while they looked like wrecks they were funtional.... this is not. I'd guess/hope that this is more of a 2nd car for max much like the Semi in road Warrior or the Speed6 in Speed Racer. If not I hate to say it but the XB Falken was rather Iconic with Max and without it I'm not sure I would enjoy it as much. it would be like making a new Dukes of Hazard with a 911. Its not bad but the car its not people want to see the hero's in

        I wouldn't bet on it being Max's car at all. Hero car in the world of film making doesn't necessarily mean the same thing as hero's car.

      I don't think a few of the commenters understand the term hero as it pertains to film making. A hero prop or vehicle is one that is highly detailed and able to be filmed up close. A stunt prop or vehicle is one that is made to look like the hero version but shown from a distance and be subject to abuse that the hero version wouldn't be made to endure.

      SO you can build something like that in a post-apocalyptic world, huh? And two matching old Caddies to boot? I think not

      This car is so lame the only thing missing is Seth Rogen and Paul Rudd as the villains.

      Can't wait for the movie to come. Maybe someone can leak some video of the car in action. What really amuses me is the director's reasoning for filming in Namibia. Just a few years the American studios were shooting films in Australia (and Canada, Israel, Mexico and Spain) because the settings look more American than America itself. Now Australia's excuse is that the Outback is too green? Bull crap. They should just admit the truth: Tax breaks, attractive film subsidies, and not having to deal with domestic labor laws and greedy unions. I can't wait to hear Namibia's excuse for moving their local film production out of the country.
