Description: The Pursuit Special, a.k.a. "The Black on Black" is a 1973 XB GT Ford Falcon Coupe, with a Concorde front end body accessory, and a supercharger thrust up through the hood (which in truth is only a prop and doesn't actually work). It is a powerful muscle car, said to: “...sips nitro... with Phase 4 heads! 600 horsepower through the wheels! She's meanness set to music and the bitch is born to run!” The car is presented to Max early in the film in order to keep him from leaving the Main Force Patrol. Later, he retrieves the car and uses it to chase down Toecutter’s gang.

The Pursuit Special was built based off of the Mustang character sheet found in the HERO System Vehicle Sourcebook and then modified to make it a full-size car.
