If you’re a fan of “The Walking Dead,” or you just have a slight infatuation with the undead, chances are you’ve probably thought about what you would do in the event of an impending zombie apocalypse. While weapons and shelter are two important concerns, a set of wheels is crucial to survival. Hopefully your worst fears never come to fruition, but if they do, make sure you have one of these cars at your disposal.

2017 Nissan GT-R Nismo

You may not have the space to pack in other survivors, but the 2017 Nissan GT-R Nismo is sure to keep you a step ahead of your bloodthirsty foes. Nissan claims that the GT-R allows four passengers, but anything more than two is a bit cramped.

That aside, it’s what’s under the hood that really gives you an advantage. Beneath the sheet metal, the GT-R Nismo has quite a punch thanks to a 3.8-liter, twin turbo V6. With this at the helm, you’ll have access to 600 horsepower and 481 pound-feet of torque that takes you from zero-to-60 in just 2.9 seconds and a top speed of 191 MPH.

2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon

Although it isn’t yet in showrooms, the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is the vehicle — both in name and performance — to battle even the most unrelenting zombies. Billed as the fastest production car of all time, the Demon’s 840-horsepower, supercharged 6.2-liter V8 propels the car from zero-to-60 in just 2.3 seconds. If you’re in for an extended battle or drive, push the pedal to the floor to go a quarter-mile in just 9.65 seconds while topping 140 MPH.

2017 Tesla Model S P100D

Chances are that both gas and electric become increasingly more difficult to come by during a zombie apocalypse. However, it’s possibly easier to rig something up to provide the electricity needed to power a 2017 Tesla Model S P100D. With up to 337 miles or range, you’re sure to find temporary relief from zombie hordes without having to refuel. Plus, you can engage Ludicrous mode to push the limits of the 532-horsepower engine. When turned on, the Tesla Model S goes from zero-to-60 in 2.5 seconds with a top speed of 155 MPH. Plus, it has an autopilot mode to allow you to focus on more important things – such as aim.

2016 Acura NSX

After over a decade away from the market, the Acura NSX returned in 2016 as a hybrid sports car that put gasoline-powered competitors to shame. Under the hood, the NSX has three electric motors and a 3.5-liter twin turbo V6 that’s good for 573 horsepower of pure driving power. If you need to escape in a hurry, the NSX takes you from zero-to-60 in just 3.1 seconds while topping out at 191 MPH. Plus, its hybrid powertrain lets you stay away from danger thanks to amazing fuel economy of up to 22 mpg.
