Hyundai will welcome the newest addition to its zombie-fighting family at New York Comic-Con: the fan-designed Santa Fe Zombie Survival Machine.

Hyundai_SantaFe_Zombie_3As part of The Walking Dead Chop Shop configurator app designed by Hyundai and INNOCEAN USA (launched during San Diego Comic-Con), fans have designed thousands of custom zombie survival machines using the Hyundai Veloster Turbo, Santa Fe or Elantra. This summer, Anson 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 (GAS) and the real-life machine will be unveiled on the New York Comic-Con show floor on October 10.

His mission was to create a stealthy vehicle with abundant cargo space for supplies and passengers, maximizing survivability against the undead.
