Hyundai has made good on its promise to bring the Zombie Survival Machine to Comic-Con in San Diego, California. The specially modified Elantra Coupe GT was designed by Robert Kirkman, who created and wrote the comic book series The Walking Dead.
Fans can check out the build of the car complete with behind-the-scenes videos online. The car received a zombie plow, window grates, roof hatch, and a trunk filled with electric and pneumatic weapons, among others. The owner’s manual mimics a graphic novel and includes descriptions of all the new components. It also informs users of what they should do in the case of a zombie apocalypse.
The car was built as part of the Hyundai Undead program that celebrates the release of the 100th issue of The Walking Dead.
Hyundai will also be giving away a 2013 Hyundai Elantra GT wrapped in the cover of the 100th issue of the comic featuring artwork by Charlie Adlard, longtime artist for The Walking Dead. The coupe has recently gone on sale at Hyundai dealers, with prices starting at $18,220.
