Hyundai Does Its Part To Thwart Zombie Invasion

Built to withstand the rigors of the coming zombie apocalypse, it features such essential undead-eliminating armaments as a front-end spiked zombie plow, armored window coverings, a roof hatch that enables passengers to fend off attacking walkers, a trunk laden with electric and pneumatic weaponry, front and rear-mounted floodlights and spiked all-terrain/rally type tires.

The heavily customized version of the automaker’s new compact coupe was designed by creator/writer of The Walking Dead TV show and graphic novel series Robert Kirkman, and was fabricated by Design Craft Fabrication in Westminster, Calif.

How about developing an electric vehicle? If that zombie apocalypse happens, nobody will be left to run the petroleum refineries.

I'd be interested in seeing who'd actually buy one of these. . . Maybe the Department of Defense.

A simular equipped Jeep or Ford F-150 would do a better job. I mean the Elantra doesn't even come with 4X4 or AWD. How is this well equipped Elantra supposed to get traction driving on the remains of zombies while driving through a large group of the undead? I mean zombies have persistence, pursuing success, they will do everything to get a(head).
