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.
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.
This commercial for Die Hard Platinum batteries illustrates why expensive batteries are sometimes worth the price. Drive into the Mohave desert, shoot the truck's battery with a .458 caliber rifle, then it still works to start a truck. Very convincing.
