I will never get why Max destroy this car for the other car, this have a V8, better suspension, better everything, and a crazy minion.


The Pursuit Special signifies the last part of his old life Max has left. It's a relic from a bygone era - before it was his wasteland machine, it was a police car that was used to keep and restore order. It's all he has left.

I wouldn't use the Tail light Panel for identification as most of the Magnum Opus Car Bodies (Furnace, Ripper, Death Rattle) have no tail light panels. Additionally the Landaus full width tail panel has a much lower bezel wrapping around it, whereas this doesn't, and resembles the Falcon more.

Were Landaus available with the same Ram-Air hood as the GT Falcons? I haven't seen picture of any. Plus the Landaus hoods had a distinct bulge in the centre towards the front.

This also has the XB Falcon Rear Side Marker lights and not the Landaus


The GT hood wasn't a factory option, but it was quite a common practice in the 80's to ditch the Landau front end for Falcon or Fairlane panels. I believe Landaus used a modified ZG Fairlane front end, as they share the same distinct bulge on the hood. I'm not sure you can discount it as a Landau just yet. The rear marker lights on a Landau are usually horizontal,BUT there are a few with vertical markers and even a few XB Falcon coupes (and utes!) with horizontal side markers. Ford Australia is formidable for using leftover parts, and Landaus and LTDs were mostly unused XA and early XB shells (the 300 or so leftover coupe shells from the LTD division eventually became XC Cobras). The modelers probably used the same basic model as the Interceptor for this one, which would explain the similarities, but that short quarter window is very distinct.

That's it! I think the model name should be changed to 1973 Ford Landau P5. It has the right quarter windows, and no tail-light panel (Landaus and LTDs used a different, full-width panel.

The rear Quarter Window has been stylised (resembles the Ford Landau a bit) as part of the changes to differentiate this from the Interceptor.

I keep coming back to look at this one because there's something a bit off about it. The rear quarter windows look wrong... is it possible they've lowered the roof a little on this model?

Odds are they used the mesh from the Pursuit Special/Interceptor as a base for it. As a 3d Artist, it's what I'd do.

It's not necessarily a GT, or even an XB. Assuming this isn't THE black on black pursuit, it could be an XA, XB or XC coupe from any trim level (Falcon 500, Fairmont, GS, etc.)

You're welcome. There are a lot games which we might like, and there's another lot which we mightn't like.

What is the difference between this and ordinary V8 Interceptor? I would download it (of course warez, I throw most of my money to the funny-glitches-are-patched garbage called GTA V), but I have strange feeling that game would be as bad as Fuel, that cant be run without 24/7 connection to internet. And I dont really enjoyed the movie neither, so I dont think I would enjoy the game, I saw 2 first movies just for the car.

But on technical side, this game is great because it was developed specially for PCs, and just then ported to the consoles.
