Does it also wash itself and magically update to the next years model when it becomes available?

Looks to me like you're going to end up with a bunch of still active zombies stuck all over your vehicle.

It's a car, not an iPhone.

This zombie thing is played out... Let them eat bacon from their duct take wallets.

It's not a cute internet meme anymore. If your grandma thinks it's new, it's lost its soul. So to speak.

I hate that car whenever i see it onscreen.
Sticks out like a clean car in a zombie apocalypse.

I do not see the problem.  In the show, especially the farm or the prison, people get a little free time in the zombi apocalyse what do they do?  First you would expect them to create some fortification.... well they never did do that.  Second you would expect maybe finding ways of getting fresh water and or do a garden.... well they never did do that.  Thirdly they would know where all of the people with the least ability to fend for themeselves are... well they never did do that.  Actually what they did was spend the whole freak'n day, every day wathing that Hyundai.

I saw some dumbass with a BMW , (z4), , who had added a black stripe to his car.  On the Stripe in Day-glo yellow were the letters ZEV.  underneath the letters, it said "Zombie Escape Vehicle".....  I hope it was just a skin.  I can't imagine anyone doing that to a poor defensless car...

Does it still have airbags and the fuel shut off switch? if so, it's useless. After hitting 2 or 3 it would be just sitting still. Now a 1975 K5 Blazer on 38s would be more useful than this atrocity. This is a bad marketing ploy made by a car company that doesn't know anything about what happens after striking something with any speed and wanting to continue driving afterwards. If anything, it scares me to get into their cars because of it.

So, the turret cage is an option then, or is the hatch just there to get rid of ancillary characters?

That car is ridiculous.  Instead of knives on the front, you need a lightweight aluminum snowplow attached to the frame in order to push the walkers out of your way on either side.

Also, the three guns on the front is just plain dumb.  You don't want to waste your ammo like that, plus it's loud and attracts the wrong kind of attention.

It sounds that way because that's exactly what they're doing:

FTFA: Galpin Auto Sports turned his concept into a real car, which will be unveiled on Oct. 10 at the New York Comic-Con show.

Fun fact, Galpin Auto Sports in the shop used on the last year or two of Pimp My Ride.

If I ever need a car for a zombie apocalypse, the first thing I'll do is go hunting for one of those experimental vehicles that tech institutes build for competitions that run entirely on solar power. Steal the solar panels, battery and motor, throw them on a large armored car, and that's the solution. It doesn't have to be fast, so long as it's heavy, armored, and doesn't require refined gasoline to run.

I worked for a company that fielded one of those cars for an endurance competition. The heaviest thing in it would be the driver followed by the panels and then the electric motor. It was essentially a fiberglass canoe with bicycle tires. If you put so much as another 100 pounds on it (like a 12 year old kid) it needed a push to get moving at all. Glaciers have better acceleration and that's unarmored.

And I hope you plan on using it in someplace like flat assed Kansas. From a stop it couldn't make it up a standard sidewalk handicap ramp. You can take solace in the fact that your death will be "green" and guilt free while I plan on leaving a carbon footprint so large it will be visible from space.

I wouldn't. I'd look for something from the mid-70s. Something's eventually going to break, and I'd rather it be a part I can find easily by scavenging an abandoned auto parts store.

Should be easy to find, since everyone else would bypass them for Chevy's.

Right, but your footprint would only last for a couple days before you ran out of gas and got overrun. See, gasoline isn't just laying around, it takes humans to make it.

Zombie fantasies led to Doomsday Preppers invading real life, which I'm good with.

Why would I be okay with being around people who constantly remind those around them "You're not prepared," or "You don't have a plan."

"But I do," I respond.

That plan is to eat people.

A diesel from the 70's.  Then you can use heating oil, kerosene, or make your own fuel.

Can zombies be converted to bio-diesel?  I would assume so, if the fat hasn't rotted too much.

I look up and down my street and see nothing but gasoline "just lying around" in unused vehicles. My survival plan centers largely on preying upon less prepared survivors. Go ahead and wall yourself up inside a mall or your solar go cart. You might be safe from the zombies but you'll never be safe from me.

FTFA: Fans of the TV show "The Walking Dead" who believe zombies are more than just a fictional threat will be relieved to know that Hyundai - conveniently one of the show's sponsors - is creating another one-off car designed for slaying the undead.

In the department of zombie-proofed cars, this isn't Hyundai's first rodeo. In July, the automaker displayed a Veloster Zombie Survival Machine. Last year, the car company present the original Zombie Survival Machine, an Elantra Coupe.

I'd prefer something more like a dual-sport motorcycle. Fuel efficient and extremely maneuverable on multiple terrains.

If possible I would use a bicycle due to low noise though.

Yes, a car would be needed in a zombie apocalypse at some point, but not all of the time.

It's called the Farm. Just stay in it and nothing ever happens.

Would the doors even open?  Those swords look like it would prevent the user from opening the door enough to get in.

The gas would go bad in less than a year so you might want to look into solar or diesel.
