The Holden Monaro is an Australian muscle car produced by GM Holden, an Australian subsidiary of General Motors. Early 1970s-model Monaros occasionally appear in the Mad Max series.
A black 'Pursuit Special' Holden Monaro, stolen by the Nightrider , is one of the first vehicles to appear in the film. It manages to evade MFP efforts to recapture it until the arrival of Max in the pursuit. While attempting to outrun Max, the Nightrider does not react in time to avoid wreckage on the road and crashes at high speeds, killing himself and his girlfriend , as well as destroying the Monaro.
Two modified 1968-1971 Holden Monaros are a part of the War Boys' Carmada. They both have large flamethrowers mounted on their back. One Monaro has the front end of a 1950s Pontiac. The Monaro with its original front end is the first car to get swept up in the sandstorm after Furiosa sideswipes it with The War Rig.
