Shark Week 2013 Beetle Convertible

The Volkswagen Beetle - Exclusive Underwater Edition

As if sharks weren't cool enough already, Volkswagen is helping them get around the ocean floor in the stylish, iconic 2013 Beetle Convertible. Although sharks are short on hands, have awful vision, can't pass any driving tests, don't have gas stations or any sort of currency, VW is willing to overlook those shortcomings and take the chance at a profitable endeavor by expanding into the Shark market.

For a test drive, contact your local underwater Volkswagen dealership today.

After further research, our local experts found out that this Beetle isn't actually for the sharks, it's protecting against them. In partnership with marine biologist Luke Tipple, the Discovery entertainment team has developed the ultimate shark observation cage based on the 2013 VW Beetle Convertible. Capable of driving underwater thanks to its electric tri-motor system, Discovery will be able to capture all the action.

“As Discovery’s longest-running franchise and TV’s must-see summer event, Shark Week has a loyal audience, which we are proud to engage in this unique sponsorship with Volkswagen,” said Scott Felenstein, executive vice president, advertising sales, Discovery Communications. “We are thrilled to continue our partnership with Volkswagen, connecting them to our passionate fans to help drive brand awareness and showcase VW’s ingenuity and originality.”

Fans will be able to follow Tipple on his "Sub-aquatic Road Trip" along the floor of the ocean, and see "sneak peeks" into Shark Week's program. Make sure to follow along using the hashtag #SharkWeek and #VWSharkWeek this year. Visit @Discovery@VW, and @luketipple.

When does Shark Week begin? August 4, 2013. You're not going to want to miss this underwater Beetle! If we know Shark Week like we think we do, this Beetle protection cage won't be in the same shape it's in now.
