Autobytel Editors Survive Nature’s Deadliest Killer “Sharknado” In Ten Storm-Worthy Rides

Stocks in this article: ABTL

Ahhhh, summer. Time for picnics, swimming, naps in the hammock…and apocalyptic tales of sharks descending from a freak and violent cyclone over Los Angeles.

Such is the premise of “Sharknado,” the campy, made-for-SyFy summertime cinematic thriller about a tornado that hoists sharks out of the ocean and hurls them onto terrified Los Angeleans. The social media sensation, originally airing on the SyFy channel July 11 th, is set to re-air tonight, with talks about a sequel (or possible prequel) under way and with people lining up to Twitter tagline ideas for the second installment.

In time for tonight’s rebroadcast, the car enthusiasts at Autobytel picked their top ten vehicles to ride out the Sharknado storm.

2003 Hyundai Tiburon

In the event of a shark deluge to rival an act of God, stay calm and make like a shark. Enter the Hyundai Tiburon – the Korean automaker’s successor to the aptly-named Scoupe coupe, and first attempt at building a shark. Autobytel’s editors prefer the second-generation model, which nicked some of its design cues from Ferraris. Sharks are fast. Ferraris are faster.

1963 Chevrolet Corvette Mako Shark and Morgan Three-Wheeler (Tie)

One step up the chain of conformity for the sake of survival is not only acting like the enemy, but looking like it, as well. In 1963, the team at GM Styling & Design crafted a one-off Mako Shark Concept. Since the Mako Shark never officially made it to production, the closest you can continue to get to procuring a shark is the Morgan Three-Wheeler.

Oldsmobile Toronado

The first thing that you need to know about the commonalities between the Sharknado and the Oldsmobile Toronado is that there is one: their names are both invented. But if you must attempt to confuse one of the sea’s most powerful creatures, the Toronado is not a bad choice. Powered by large V-8 engines, and built to withstand natural disasters of, well, Sharknado caliber, best snap one up before they begin to appreciate on the auction block.
