Hyundai Elantra Coupe Zombie Survival Machine
Much to the dismay of zombies around the world, a Zombie Survival Machine was unveiled at San Diego’s Comic-Con. The customized Hyundai Elantra Coupe Zombie Survival Machine, designed by The Walking Dead creator/writer Robert Kirkman and fabricated by Design Craft, was revealed on the Comic-Con floor at the Future US booth.
Hyundai’s Zombie Survival Machine showcases modifications including: a front-end custom zombie plow with spikes, armored window coverings, a roof hatch to allow passengers to fend off attacking walkers, a trunk full of electric and pneumatic weaponry, front and back end floodlights, spiked all-terrain/rally type tires, a CB radio system and much more. Fans can view a series of behind-the-scenes videos that detail the creation of the Zombie Survival Machine and showcase the car build from start to finish at HyundaiUndead.com and on Skybound.com
“Our custom Elantra Coupe Zombie Survival Machine is the ultimate car for The Walking Dead fans and anyone who wants to survive a zombie invasion,” said Steve Shannon, vice president of Marketing, Hyundai Motor America. “We are excited for fans to come and experience the Elantra Coupe and GT in a unique, post-apocalyptic way.”
The Hyundai Undead program celebrates the release of the 100th issue of The Walking Dead comic. In addition to the Zombie Survival Machine, Kirkman, Skybound and Hyundai also created a Hyundai Elantra GT wrapped in the cover of The Walking Dead 100th issue by artist Charlie Adlard.
Robert Kirkman's Eisner Award-winning comic and best-selling graphic novels, The Walking Dead are the talk of Comic-Con already. “Working with Hyundai on this Zombie Survival Machine was a total blast and I am excited to share this stunning vehicle with all the fans,” said Kirkman.
Comic-Con attendees will be able to take pictures with the Zombie Survival Machine at the Future US booth, and get inside the vehicle to check out all of the features, including a limited run illustrated owner’s manual that walks drivers through the machine’s unique features and prepares them for the gruesome realities of the zombie apocalypse. The booth will also feature a Zombie Target practice area and a zombie costume contest.
