VW teams up with Discovery to celebrate 25 years of Shark Week with Beetle shaped cage

Volkswagen Beetle Shark Week Cage

Alright you marine freaks – Shark Week is coming up from August 12 through the 16 on the Discovery Channel and this year is more special than ever. Why? Because it’s the 25th Anniversary of Shark Week.

Volkswagen has teamed up with Discovery Channel to celebrate the 25 years by having its engineers construct a shark observation cage in the shape of the iconic Beetle. The cage, which took approximately three weeks to build and is made of tubular aluminium, will put viewers in the driver’s seat as it cruises the ocean floor, surrounded by sharks.

The Volkswagen Beetle Shark Observation Cage will be part of a 3-part short-film series to air during Shark Week which chronicles the design, construction, and submersion of the Beetle.

Hit the jump for the preview.
