South Korean electronics, unlike their Chinese counterparts, are known to have an outstanding functional life. And to prove the sturdiness of their products, South Korea’s most famous auto manufacturer Hyundai commissioned Robert Kirkman, the creator of The Walking Dead, to create a vehicle that would be perfect for use during a zombie apocalypse. Based on the Elantra Coupe Hyundai showcased earlier this year, the Zombiemobile will be powered by the same four-cylinder 1.8-liter engine that delivers a clean 148 ponies to the 2013 Elantra Coupe announced at the Chicago Auto Show earlier which may not seem like a lot but it would be enough to outpace the hoards of zombies dragging themselves all around the place.
For the traditional folks, an ideal zombie disaster survival car would have tonnes of horsepower and plenty of space to stash food and weapons. But Kirkman, being the expert on the subject that he is, believes that fuel efficiency holds the key to surviving the attack of zombie. Hence, the Elantra proves to be just the perfect survival vehicle. What’s even better is the fact that the Zombiemobile comes fitted with zombie leg slashes on all four wheels, a zombie plow along the front fender and fog lights to ensure that you’re never in short of powerful light beams since zombies are known to be very sensitive to light. The vehicle also features a roof mounted escape panel but we’re sure that will almost never be used. You can check out a prototype of the Hyundai Zombiemobile at this year’s Comic Con.
