Grenade-proof with whale-penis leather seats, by Dartz

If four-wheel-drives weren’t politically incorrect enough, a Russian car maker is offering one with whale penis leather trim. (Drive)

I’m guessing most of us probably wouldn’t shell out $1.6 million to ride around on whale penis, even if we had the money, but I could very well be wrong. For those who are interested, Russian armored car builder Dartz, manufactures the Prombron Monaco Red Diamond Edition with leather seats made from “whale-penis leather". 

Dartz claims the Prombron is the world’s most expensive SUV, but not just because of the mammalian delicacies. Options on the rig are indubitably suited to a wealthy individual who prefers to be swaddled in the aquatic crotch of luxury during their travels, yet still fears being blown to bits via grenade launcher, machinegun and the like. 

The Prombron meets their diverse needs with features that include bulletproof gold-plated windows, exhaust made of tungsten, diamond and ruby encrusted gauges, exterior Kevlar coating, and of course, “whale-penis leather”. 

Weighing roughly 4 tons, the Prombron powers away from would-be assassins with a V8 engine that puts out between 400-500hp. In the unfortunate event an attack should occur, the vehicle is "rocket grenade-proof" according to the website. 

The hefty sticker price also includes three bottles of the world’s most expensive Vodka, which should come in handy if you have to make use of the armor. But Dartz does not promote drinking and driving. 

*”Save the whales” people might be less pissed to know that the Blue Whale penis can grow over six feet long, significantly reducing the number needed to wrap a Prombron seat.
