One of the eye-catching aspects of the film were the cars; despite most of them being destroyed in filming. Photographer John Platt managed to capture most of these machines before they were let off the leash in the Namibian desert. Production designer, Colin Gibson brought 150 of these machines to life, where they were showcased in the greatest of detail.
