The 2015 movie Mad Max: Fury Road was more than just desert car racing. It was an absolute blast of a post-apocalyptic film. Characters we rooted for, a story packed with action, and gorgeously haunting shots. We still shudder thinking of those mysterious Bog Walkers on stilts! 
This article, though, is about the cars that our protagonists drove in, as well as how they might have had special movie auto insurance. The authentic Mad Max vehicles officially went up for auction

Auction for the ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ Vehicles 

Car and Driver revealed that 13 original vehicles from the set went up for sale.
The auction took place on September 25th and 26th, 2021. Unfortunately, we haven’t seen any details of the results yet.
Of course, to add a bit of spice to it, the auction only allows bidders to make secret bids. Each bidder won’t know what price the others are putting up. 
With such a limited timeframe and secrecy to the auction, it’s obviously quite a cutthroat experience. 
But remember the film we’re talking about here! It feels like they want the bidders to bid like people warred over water in the movie. A potential bloodbath (monetarily, of course).
The auction includes the famous War Rig tanker truck, as well as plenty of convoy vehicles. Film and car enthusiasts will love to see these heavily modded vehicles. 
The company running this auction is Lloyds Auctioneers and Valuers. Their item descriptions are very on point. 
The War Rig tanker is listed as: "Mutant lovechild of semi-trailer and hot rod, twin V8s end to end, six-wheel-drive, eighteen-wheeled leviathan charged with the barter of fluids and firearms that binds the three city-states of the Wasteland in tenuous alliance." 
It’s a good time to be auctioning these vehicles. Rumors are spreading, suggesting that the director George Miller is working on a prequel that focuses on Imperator Furiosa (played by Charlize Theron). The prequel is supposed to be released in 2024. 

How does car insurance work for cars in movies

Vehicles from movies tend to take a beating. Crashing into monsters and men left and right, crazy stunt chases… let’s just say that movie cars don’t have a retirement plan. (Unless, perhaps, you’re literally a car from Cars.)
From 007 crashing luxury cars left and right to Mad Max vehicles getting destroyed, it’s easy to imagine that movie car insurance can be quite expensive.
The vehicles would probably have to be regularly insured first. Many states have minimum insurance requirements. Liability insurance is likely crucial coverage to have. 
Comprehensive coverage is probably desired as well. It’s hard to say what destruction the vehicles might cause or undergo. 
Because the vehicles are used in films and TV, which have their own rules and regulations, they are probably insured under a film production policy, too.
Ultimately, it’s likely quite expensive to insure cars for film usage.
