The movie was named "The Road Warrior" because the original "Mad Max" film had little fanfare at the time of it's release. It is now known as "Mad Max 2."
The supercharger on the XB Falcon was a pretend one.

Max's vehicle in the opening sequence is a 1973 Ford Falcon XBGT hardtop (available only in Australia) powered by a 351 Cleveland engine coupe and backed by a toploader 4-speed. This is sometimes mis-identified as an Australian GM Holden Monaro.

They were going to make a fourth Mad Max film called "Mad Max 4: Fury Road". Although the project was given the green light for a $100 million USD budget, Fury Road is currently in hiatus. Mel Gibson has said that he does not wish to work on another "Mad Max" film, not because he doesn't like the series, but because he doesn't consider himself physically able to play Max. He even joked saying that the movie would be called "Fat Max". He has said he would not do the film without George Miller, the series' writer and director, and suggested that Max ought to die in the movie. There have been rumors flying around the Internet for years about a possible plot. Ideas range from taking place after Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome to a prequel, telling the story of the Main Force Patrol prior to the original film, Mad Max. This film was scheduled to go into production a few years earlier than 2006, but the project was delayed due to travel restrictions imposed after the terrorist attacks on the USA of 11 September 2001. Many cast and crew members could not get to the proposed location. The production office for the project has apparently since closed.

There were two XB Falcons used in MM2, one of them was wrecked completely as seen in the movie, the other was abandoned then eventually bought, restored, and put in a Museum.
The wrecked car (and a few others) is in a private hands somewhere in Broken Hill NSW and is a barely recognizable rusty wreck.
When movies are made, scenes are often
left on the cutting room floor.
Sometimes, there will be several versions
of a movie floating about on cable, tv or video etc. Other times, a Director may
release a special cut of the movie.
