Want to get everyone's attention? This is how.
If you want to own an armored SUV unlike anything else on the planet, you'll probably be interested in the Hummer-based monsters built by Dartz. The Latvian company is well-known for its crazy creations that both insulate occupants from external threats and flex on the proletariat on the outside. These are not vehicles that you buy if you're looking to fly under the radar, even if you're talking about a so-called regular version.
But today's Aladeen Edition SUV is even more attention-grabbing, making it the perfect buy for the extroverted industrialist. Complete with a gold exterior and plenty of protection from projectiles, this is a listing like almost nothing else.
The car includes features like a biometric gun safe for the film's protagonist's golden gun and loads of exotic materials. As an Aladeen Edition from 2012's The Dictator, the vehicle comes with Wadiyan number plates, gold badges, various military logos from the film, and "as a bonus," even the Virgin guard's berets.
Just ten of these special editions were made, but they all feature the same sort of bones as other Dartz creations, namely a Mercedes-Benz GLS chassis, armor plating, bulletproof windows, electrified door handles, a signal jammer, and dual gas tanks for increased range. A V8 was offered as was a V12, but we're not sure which is doing duty here.
There's no mention of cost but we do know that a regular Dartz Prombron cost at least $1.1 million back in 2014. It's difficult to estimate where the value of the car would be now, as it would take a very rare individual to buy something like this.
For a start, you have to be very wealthy, but while there are loads of millionaires around the globe, we doubt that a large percentage of them are hardcore fans of the satirical comedy. Would we buy one? Aladeen.
