Description: This represents the Pursuit Special after the road duel at the start of The Road Warrior. The front airdam is missing, the trunk has been removed, it has a pair of large fuel tanks mounted on the back deck, and a seat mounted in the passenger's side door (which is normally used by Dog, Max's pet dog). The vehicle is booby trapped, with an explosive device attached to the rear fuel tanks. Open the cap without disengaging the switch and BOOM! There’s also a spare tyre tucked in between the fuel tanks.
The Pursuit Special is destroyed when Wez uses the Humungus Machine to chase Max down.
