20The Transport Trucks Were True Heroes
Any movie involving cars has to handle the realities of how much these things weigh. With Mad Max, set in a mostly desert world, the cars had to be taken to remote locations for filming. This meant utilizing a fleet of transport trucks able to handle it all. Fury Road
was the biggest challenge, given they were in the brutal Namibia desert. Thus, a fleet of five military transport trucks from Germany with 8X8 drivetrain was used to carry cars and equipment across the distance of three football fields at least six times a day. The trucks also doubled to hold up props for close-up shots. Miller has stated there’s no way the movie could have been made without these monsters carrying the other cars about.
