The ultimate in bling
"A lady will never go to a party in the same dress as another," says Leonard Yankelovich, the boss of Latvian luxury car and armoured tank maker Dartz. And yet she won’t think twice about pulling up in the same Bentley GT or Porsche Cayenne as all the other guests.
If that sounds like the kind of problem that keeps you awake at night, Yankelovich has come up with the solution: this Dartz Black Snake.
The Black Snake is based on the Mercedes GL 63 AMG, sharing the same chassis and 5.5-litre V8 bi-turbo engine, and delivering some blistering performance: it will hit 60mph in just 4.9 seconds. But unlike the Mercedes, the Black Snake is bullet-proof, and comes with an optional diamond-encrusted hood ornament and a bonnet covered in snakeskin-pattern gold leaf. You can have the interior lined with your choice of crocodile belly, ostrich, whale penis or snake.
The dashboard and pannelling are in snake wood. And if that’s not enough, there’s something to sweeten the deal, says Ross Kenneth Urken on the Yahoo Autos website: every owner gets 56g of premium Mottra caviar delivered monthly for the two-year warranty time and a chance to buy three types of RussoBaltique Vodka with diamond filter.
If you’re rich, powerful, and love washing down caviar with vodka, this is the car for you, says Topgear.com. But sadly, only if you live in China and have the estimated asking price to hand: $1,000,000.
