The UK’s biggest online garage and repair marketplace has revealed the best cars to help people survive the end of the world, ahead of the latest Rapture prediction, April 23. The company has used its market knowledge to create the tongue-in-cheek list and suggested modifications to vehicles to make them ‘apocalypse-proof’, giving people the best chance of survival.

The UK’s biggest online garage and repair marketplace has revealed which cars will help humankind survive the apocalypse.

WhoCanFixMyCar.com created the list in response to the news that the latest prediction of the Rapture is due to take place on April 23. The end of the world has been predicted hundreds of times since 66 AD.

More recently, the news that the Doomsday Clock is closer to midnight than ever before**, which also factored in choosing the final seven.

WhoCanFixMyCar.com used its knowledge of the motoring industry to find out the best vehicles to use in a post-apocalyptic world and the suggested modifications to ‘apocalypse-proof’ each of the chosen vehicles.

Here are the top five vehicles to help you survive an apocalypse:

  1. The Marauder – it can carry up to 4,500kg, accommodate 10 people and withstand bullets, mines and other explosives. It can be fitted with night-vision devices, helping to navigate terrain at night.
  2. The Cadillac – made for the President of the United States, it’s a luxury limo that has bomb-proof steel plating, bulletproof glass and Kevlar-reinforced tyres. It has night-vision cameras already installed, can suppress fire and withstand chemical attacks.
  3. Toyota Hilux 1988 – Top Gear has put this car through its paces; it has been submerged in the ocean, crashed into a tree and set on fire, showing that it can withstand the harsh conditions of an apocalypse.
  4. Land Rover Defender – it can be adapted into almost anything, including tow trucks, mobile ambulances and snow ploughs, it’s adaptable and durable enough for a post-apocalyptic environment.
  5. Oshkosh Wheeled Tanker – it can carry 20,000 litres of fuel or 18,000 litres of water, is armoured and has off-road tyres. It also shares common parts with other vehicles, so can be easy to repair on the road.

“Fans of TV shows like The Walking Dead and films like World War Z and Mad Max: Fury Road often consider how they may actually survive in a post-apocalyptic world. We’ve had countless conversations in our own offices too, so we’re glad to be able to tick transport off their list!
