Hyundai and The Walking Dead have created the Santa Fe Zombie Survival Machine, which will debut at New York Comic-Con. The special Santa Fe was designed by Anson Kuo, one of th e thousands of fans that designed the ultimate zombie survival machine.
As part of The Walking Dead Chop Shop configurator app fans have designed thousands of custom zombie survival machines using the Hyundai Veloster Turbo, Santa Fe or Elantra. This summer, Kuo’s Santa Fe design was picked as the winner out of more than 82,500 fan submissions. His winning vehicle was constructed by Galpin Auto Sports and the real-life machine will be unveiled on the New York Comic-Con show floor on October 10 at the Future US booth.
Kuo, who hails from Arizona, created an urban camouflaged Zombie Survival Machine featuring: knife blades, an automatic crossbow, razor-wired windows, three machine guns, a samurai sword, aluminum armor and a muffler silencer. His mission was to create a stealthy vehicle with abundant cargo space for supplies and passengers, maximizing survivability against the undead. Having knives as a primary weapon ensures scarce ammunition is conserved, said Kuo. This Hyundai will be a true zombie obliterator.
