Continuity mistake: When Max walks over to the auto gyro, from the overhead shot there is only one set of footprints in the sand leading away and the rest of the sand looks like it's been raked, then when the Gyro Captain appears the sand is covered in footprints.
Continuity mistake: In the opening scene where Max is behind the landau just about to crash it (by activating the supercharger), the interceptor's custom front-end is already destroyed. Then Max accelerates the car and the custom front-end is intact again, to finally be destroyed in the crash.
