Hyundai Veloster Turbo Zombie Survival Machine

By Ganesh

Zombie apocalypse is the latest craze among nerds around the world, what, with hit TV shows like The Walking Dead and a Brad Pitt starrer movie, World War Z. This special Hyundai Veloster Turbo Zombie Survival Machine is part of that zombie love and was unveiled at the San Diego Comic Con.

The reason behind the Zombie Survival Machine is Hyundai's association with The Walking Dead. In fact, last year Hyundai had showcased a similiar machine built around an Elantra Coupe. This year's Veloster Turbo based creation is a lot more intense.
