The Perfect Post Apocalyptic Vehicle

Ditch the motorcycle Daryl, it’s time to upgrade to a Mercedes-Benz Hunter X6

by  John Clark  | 


If you, like me, are hooked on AMC’s Walking Dead, you’ve no doubt caught yourself putting yourself in their position and questioning some of their less than intelligent decisions.  Like Daryl’s penchant for riding a motorcycle – are there no better options in the post-apocalyptic world that will suit his badass ways?

Thankfully for the rest of us in the real world, when the zombies come for us, Mercedes-Benz has the perfect vehicle to take us from camp to camp and on endless supply runs without fear of being eaten.  The Mercedes-Benz Hunter X6, a custom off-road vehicle that is in essence a luxury safe house on six wheels.  It has room for an ATV, a full security system, kitchen, shower and sleeps six.  Remember, big groups don’t generally work out as well as smaller more mobile zombie hunters.  The only downfall of the Hunter X6 would be it’s diesel intake, with a 7.2 liter 6 cylinder turbo-diesel engine with a power output of 327 horsepower and 958 lb-ft of torque, you’re going to want to ensure you have an ample supply of fuel on your route.
