I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not entirely rational when it comes to DARTZ. They’re about as far from what I normally like in cars as you can get, yet, somehow, the gleeful absurdity and fierce notgiveashittery manage to win me over. Yes, they make absurd vehicles. But at least they go all out when they do it.…
I know it’s April Fool’s day, but I promise you this is no joke. Like everything related to Dartz, the reality is far stranger than anything I can make up, anyway. Remember, these are the people who’s idea of luxury involves whale foreskins. But once, long before making the worlds most unrestrained and opulent SUVs,…
You know, a lot of baby seat manufacturers talk a big game when it comes to safety. And sure, maybe they help out in a car wreck, but if you have an important baby — an influential baby — a car wreck is the least of your worries. Luckily, our pals at Dartz are here to help, with the only bulletproof baby seat around.
Over the years at Jalopnik, we've poked plenty of fun at Dartz, the people who introduced the world to whale penis leather and genuinely bonkers standards of opulent lunacy. But deep down, I've always respected how far they push things. If you're going to do something, may as well go all out, and Dartz does just that.
The Dartz Black Shark is the latest armored luxury-truck truck out of Latvia; a chunky lunar-lander looking war machine with a sleekish face, Dartz says its list of defense features and concierge services make it the first "truly James Bond-style" "car" you can buy off the shelf.
Dartz, the batshit-awesome Russian luxury war-machine shiller, will be celebrating the 100th anniversary of "Russia's Motorized Infantry" this month by releasing a vehicle with an options list that literally reads like a Bond car loadout.
For reasons beyond my comprehension, the Latvian million dollar armored car company Dartz released a press release consisting of nothing but two pictures of their boss partying with Dennis Rodman.
Dartz, the Russian car company made from the chemically distilled, depraved desires of Russia's wealthiest degenerates, is at it again. Previously known for using whale penis leather in their SUVs, they're now leveraging the appeal of another colossal dick: Vladimir Putin.
Ever over-the-top creator of military-grade luxury trucks Dartz has seen fit to create this masterpiece of Vladimir Putin as John McClane of Die Hard, one of their six-wheeled G-Wagens wearing casino-rug carpet camo, and general total-war chaos.
Remember that Mercedes G 63 AMG 6x6 we saw dressed up like an evil Tonka Truck, peeking out of a jet plane? It was built by Russian luxo-warmachine factory "Dartz" for a customer who wanted them to recreate the 6-wheeled monster military truck from Die Hard 5.
Saddle up, comrades— the next iteration of the loud and proud Russian paramilitary SUV known as the one and only Dartz Prombron is here; codename: White Horse.
The Youabaian Puma debuted earlier this week at the Los Angeles Auto Show, and I think it's great. It's hilarious, it's loud, and its logo is possibly a thong covering the globe. And that's what's great about all vanity cars – they are always unique.
People revere Kanye West like he's the second coming. These people, it seems, also scare him. So much so that he bought two Dartz Prombron armored SUVs from Latvia. Is Yeezus scared?
It's the year of the Snake in China. That means it's time for automakers to start pandering to the hugely expanding Chinese market!
Hollywood loves to disguise Budapest by adding a few extra Ladas parked on the streets, with fake communist monuments in the background and blue street signs everywhere to make it look like Moscow. Since it's a much nicer experience to shoot a movie here than over in Russia, that's exactly what they did once again…
Dartz, our favorite of all the insane Latvian armored car makers, will be supplying Bruce Willis with some armored transport for the next Die Hard film, A Good Day To Die Hard, that's due to be released in 2013.
