If you thought Hummers were politically incorrect, just wait until you see the Dartz Prombron Monaco Red Diamond Edition SUV from Russia’s RussoBaltique. Costing upwards of $1,450,000, the highly modified SUV features exclusive materials such as whale-penis leather for the seats, gold-plating for the window surrounds, gauges encrusted with diamonds and rubies and an exhaust system made from tungsten.

The whale-penis leather, incidentally, is the same as that used by Greek shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis on the yacht Christina O.

Other features include Kevlar coating for added protection and three bottles of one of the world’s most expensive Vodka, RussoBaltique.

Two different versions are offered, both with V-8 powerplants. The ‘base’ model develops up to 400-horsepower, while the range topper puts out a heady 536-horsepower, and both offer “rocket grenade-proof” protection.

The company behind the vehicle, RussoBaltique, is the same one that built armored vehicles for Tsar Nicholas, Vladimir Lenin and Leon Trotsky. Interested buyers will have to wait until it makes its official debut at next year’s Top Marques Monaco luxury autos event.

  3. Some countries shoulb be banned from styling cars!!! Then again one can only look back at the automotive products from this region of the world: Skoda, Lada, Trabant, Gaz......
    Also if you put those seats in a Porsche you really would have a "cockster" to quote Jeremy Clarkson

  4. I have no idea why you'd want "whale-penis" leather seats? I guess the boys that play for the "other team" will enjoy the ride! I understand the comfort in knowing you have an armored vehicle but, holy crap, do I need to know how fast I'm going by ruby/diamond studed markers! Love the horse power though, you might have something to prove with a ride like this.

  5. It looks like a truck but as low as a car. The story of this unique car is unbelievable and interesting.

  6. You guys really need to grow up with the gay comments. It was interesting reading your comments until you see gay, and play for the other team because they are whale penis seats. Seriously, not cool.
