Should you ever find yourself in need of some wheels during the zombie apocalypse, you’d better hope that the Hyundai Santa Fe Zombie Survival Machine is around.
The car was designed by Anson Kuo, a fan of the show who used the Walking Dead Chop Shop app, The app lets users zombie-proof one of three different Hyundai models (Hyundai Veloster Turbo, Santa Fe or Elantra.) Kuo chose the Santa Fe, and Hyundai in turn chose his design out of 82,500 as the one it will take from concept to reality. Zombie Survival Machine featuring: knife blades, an automatic crossbow, razor-wired windows, three machine guns, a samurai sword, aluminum armor and a muffler silencer.
His mission was to create a stealthy vehicle with abundant cargo space for supplies and passengers, maximizing survivability against the undead. Having knives as a primary weapon ensures scarce ammunition is conserved, said Kuo.
Galpin Auto Sports will be creating the Hyundai Santa Fe Zombie Survival Machine and will debut it at the 2013 New York Comic-Con.
