Prepare yourself for the zombie apocalypse

When preparing a suitable vehicle for any upcoming zombie apocalypse, a Hyundai Elantra Coupe might not be the first option that comes to your mind. Although it is fuel economical (a good thing, considering there will be no petrol kiosks in operation during a zombie apocalypse), but it lacks the finesse needed for zombie-attacking situations.

Recently, Hyundai tried to convince us that the Elantra Coupe is suitable for such situations by showing off renderings of a zombie-proof version. The car was sketched in honour of the 100th episode of The Walking Dead comic series. Now the car is ready and it was recently displayed at Comic-Con in San Diego, California.

The specially modified Elantra Coupe was designed by Robert Kirkman, who created the Walking Dead comic series. 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.

Visitors at Comic-Con were able to take pictures of the car and on top of that, they were able to participate in various zombie related activities such as zombie target practice and also a zombie costume contest. Sadly, visitors weren’t allowed to take the car for a spin.

Hyundai will also be giving away a 2013 Hyundai Elantra Coupe wrapped in the cover of the 100th issue of the comic featuring artwork by Charlie Adlard, long-time artist for The Walking Dead.
