If you thought Hummers were politically incorrect, just wait until you see the Prombron Monaco Red Diamond, the latest edition to Dartz's Prombron Kombat range of SUVs.

Costing upwards of $1,450,000, the highly modified SUV features exclusive materials such as whale penis leather for the seats (yes, you read that correctly), 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. We're told its only acquired from whales that have died from natural causes, so no need to be alarmed.

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 400 horsepower, while the range-topper puts out a heady 536 hp, and both offer “rocket grenade-proof” protection.

The company behind the vehicle is the spiritual successor to the early 20th century car company RussoBaltique, which built armored vehicles for Tsar Nicholas, Vladimir Lenin and Leon Trotsky.
