Anson Kuo’s submission climbed a mountain of over 82,500 ideas for what ultimately became Hyundai’s latest zombie-fighting concept.
His concept, which was brought to life by California custom car shop Galpin Auto Sports (GAS) was just unveiled in the Javitz Center in New York City. Among the imaginative defenses against undead flesh fiends, the car is covered in knives and blades. The car is colored to blend into a post-apocalyptic zombie landscape and also features an automatic crossbow, razor-wired windows, three machine guns, a samurai sword, aluminum armor and a muffler silencer.
“Anson Kuo’s custom Santa Fe Zombie Survival Machine is the ultimate car for The Walking Dead fans,” said Steve Shannon, vice president, Marketing, Hyundai Motor America. “It’s very cool to see Anson’s great design become a real-life, detailed, zombie-proof vehicle.”
The vehicle is designed in honor of the popular Walking Dead television series. Last year, Hyundai brought a Walking Dead-themed Elantra to the SEMA Show in Las Vegas, and a company spokesman said the Santa Fe Zombie Survival Machine will likely be present this year.
