Hyundai's all out war on zombies will continue at New York's Comic-Con.
Labelled a "true zombie obliterator", the fan-designed vehicle will be unveiled in real-life form on Friday (NZ time).
As part of The Walking Dead Chop Shop configurator app designed by Hyundai and Innocean USA (launched during San Diego Comic-Con), fans designed thousands of custom zombie survival machines using the Hyundai Veloster Turbo, Santa Fe or Elantra.
Anson Kuo's design was picked as the winner out of more than 82,500 fan submissions and through the work of Galpin Auto Sports it will become a reality.
Kuo, who hails from Arizona, has created an urban camouflaged Zombie Survival Machine featuring knife blades, an automatic crossbow, razor-wired windows, three machine guns, a samurai sword, aluminium armour 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.
"We love Anson Kuo's take on this Santa Fe Zombie Survival Machine – it's creative ... and deadly," Hyundai spokesman Steve Shannon said.
Kuo's design follows on from July's San Diego Comic-Con where a customised Veloster Zombie Survival Machine, designed by Robert Kirkman and fabricated by GAS, was unveiled.
