SpongeBob Toyota Highlander: 'Tanked' Edition

The back-seat passengers of this 2014 Highlander are meant to be of the aquatic kind, swimming in an 800-gallon tank behind the two front seats. Animal Planet's "Tanked" co-stars Wayde King and Brett Raymer created this tank in partnership with Toyota and Nickelodeon's "SpongeBob SquarePants." The SpongeBob theme carries throughout the interior details and the exterior wrap of the vehicle. It debuted at the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show this month and will head to the L.A. Auto Show, which opens to the public on Nov. 22. A "Tanked" episode featuring the SUV will air in March.
