Volkswagen's underwater shark cage car

By Leonard Ho - Posted Jul 26, 2013 08:00 AM
It's almost time for Shark Week again on the Discovery Channel (starts August 4). For anyone who missed last year's 25th anniversary Shark Week, you missed out on this technological oddity. Volkswagen collaborated with marine biologist Luke Tipple and the Discovery Channel to build an underwater shark cage car ... that actually drives!

To be honest, it doesn't look very safe to us; VW seems to have skimped on tubular aluminum in critical areas, leaving huge spaces for sharks' to fit their chompers through.  But it's still bloody cool, right?
