In the past few years, zombies and vampires have been like a disease in the cinematographic industry and it looks like Hyundai has gotten the fever as they have unveiled a very strange looking Elantra Coupe. Called the "Zombie Survival Machine," this life-saving model was designed by The Walking Dead creator/writer Robert Kirkman and fabricated by Design Craft. It was built in honor of the 100th issue of the comic series “The Walking Dead.”

The Elantra is well-equipped to ward off any blood-thirsty zombie with armored window coverings, a roof hatch to allow passengers to fend off attacking walkers, and a trunk full of electric and pneumatic weaponry to blast off their heads. Any leftover carcasses can be done away with using the front-end custom zombie plow with spikes because, well, who doesn’t want spikes when attacking zombies? Speaking of spikes, the Elantra also has spiked all-terrain/rally type tires to allow passengers to get to safety and, when all of the technology is wiped out due to the crumbling of our world as we know it, the Elantra will be ready with a CB radio system.

"Our custom Elantra Coupe Zombie Survival Machine is the ultimate car for The Walking Dead fans and anyone who wants to survive a zombie invasion," said Steve Shannon, vice president of Marketing, Hyundai Motor America. "We are excited for fans to come and experience the Elantra Coupe and GT in a unique, post-apocalyptic way."

I won’t feel safe on that car, knowing it has flaws in its design, and the zombies could still go through the car.

Guys, you have my answer too. I don’t think this survival machine can help us to survive that undead

When will they show this on the episodes of the Walking Dead? Will they allow it to be used in the future zombie movies?

I agree with you @carlos_oldham. It is more exciting when you added something new.

I’m so excited to this 2012 Hyundai Elantra Coupe Zombie Survival Machine.

Whoa it is so cool! How did they make this? When will I see this on The Walking Dead?

It could give more strange looks if they also give it extra added features like armalites and pipe bombs.

I think it’s much better with built in fire cannon and destructive weapon like bombs and grenades.

I hope those spikes are meant for zombies only and not for human.

I don’t trust this car. It can hit and run the walkers, but not coming to a point where it kills them.

Even this car won’t survive in a zombie apocalypse. And that’s for sure.

Based on my observation, if an apocalypse of zombies will rise on earth, this Elentra Coupe won’t even survive from the walkers. The window covering has gaps that can penetrate by zombies, while the open sunroof will be one of the passages of zombies.

It seems to swagger the walkers, but not totally kills them.

Oh I’m so excited to watch that series, and I am interested on the future zombie.

Walkers are the coolest person you will meet if an apocalyptic disease spreads out. You might need this Elantra survival machine that can swatter the zombies and make them crush with the spikes that covered this coupe.

I’m also watching the Walking Dead series, and I must say that this coupe will give more excitement on the fans. I just don’t want it to happen in real life.

Whoa. It’s unbelievable! I thought it was only for movies, but could it be another movie? What’s the story behind this? Do you think there will be Zombie-apocalypse?
