Hyundai showcases Santa Fe Zombie Survival Machine

Hyundai has unveiled the winner of its ultimate zombie survival machine competition, which was based on the manufacturer's Santa Fe model.

The design by Anson Kuo was brought to life by Galpin Auto Sports (GAS) and will be one of the headline acts at the New York Comic Con floor - located at the Future US booth in the Javitz Center.

It was picked as the winner of the competition, which saw more than 82,500 models created and submitted by fans of the brand.

The urban camouflaged Zombie Survival Machine features a range of weapons designed to survive a zombie attack, with knife blades, an automatic crossbow, razor-wired windows, three machine guns, a samurai sword, aluminum armour and a muffler silencer all added to the vehicle.

Mr Kuo said: "My main design goal was to make the vehicle as stealthy and spacious as possible. I knew knives and blades would be the best bet for weaponry - they could slice and dice the zombies without releasing any ammunition. Basing the design on the Santa Fe allows space for extra passengers as well as weapons, supplies and all the other necessary items needed during a real zombie apocalypse."

The Hyundai competition was run to celebrate the 10th anniversary of The Walking Dead and Steve Shannon, vice president of marketing at Hyundai Motor America, said the Santa Fe Zombie Survival Machine is the "ultimate car" for fans of the comic.
