Those of you who are fans of the Walking Dead probably already knew this, but it seems Hyundai’s been running a contest where people could design a zombie survival vehicle based on Hyundai’s Elantra, Veloster Turbo, or Santa Fe. Many fans did, and Hyundai picked Anson Kuo’s design from over 82,500 fan submissions. It was put together by Galpin Auto Sports (GAS) and will make its debut at the New York Comic-Con this Thursday, October 10. An earlier Veloster Zombie Survival Machine designed by Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman and also put together by GAS was shown off at the San Diego Comic-Con in July.
Among other gadgets, the Santa Fe Zombie Survival Machine boasts aluminum armour, razor-wired windows, an automatic crossbow, three machine guns, a samurai sword, and knife blades. According to Kuo, having knives as a primary weapon ensures scarce ammunition is conserved.
