Hyundai Elantra Coupe Zombie Survival Machine makes Comic-Con debut [w/video]
Hyundai showed off its Elantra-based Zombie Survival Machine at this year's Comic-Con. The coupe was penned by none other than Robert Kirkman, the creator of the now-famous The Walking Dead series and features a spike-laden cow-catcher plow up front. Aggressive spiked-tires, armored windows and plenty of lighting also help set this Elantra Coupe apart from the more pedestrian production models. Hyundai partnered up with Kirkman to celebrate the 100th issue of The Walking Dead comic, and the duo turned to Design Craft for the actual fabrication. That's neat and all, but the Korean automaker went the extra mile for Comic-Con goers.
Visitors to the automaker's booth could slip inside to have their photos taken, and limited-edition illustrated "owner's manuals" were also on hand to detail exactly how each of the Coupe's features could be used to thwart walkers. You can head over to HyundaiUndead.com for more information and be sure to take a look at the full press blast below.
And, for those who just can't get enough death, we've also included a couple videos showing the car's debut to Walking Dead fans.
