Competition Brief

Ford Mad Max Concept by Simon Brook Whether it’s an outbreak of zombies or the aftermath of a nuclear apocalypse, a variety of methods are employed to showcase the downfall of society into a dystopia. Pivotal to man’s survival almost always seems to be the vehicles that we will be driving.

Participants […] are asked to envision a vehicle that will fit in to the post-apocalyptic future of 2025 in which gangs run the streets, the government has become oppressive, and survival is key.

Design themes can include (but are not limited to) self-protection, ruggedness, and speed.

The vehicles can be all-new designs or, like the Mad Max Interceptor, based off of existing vehicles.

There are three elements to keep in mind that each design MUST incorporate: the vehicle must be “bad ass”, it must have a minimum of 3 wheels, and it must have a “used” appearance. These are not cars that sit in a showroom, they are driving around on dusty roads and are often shot full of bullet holes.
