OK, so what 's next with Gollywood's 'It' couple, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian (Kim-Ye)? A pair of armored SUVs, that's what's next! West, reportedly doled out a cool $2 million for the ultimate his and hers Prombrons built by Latvian-based Dartz Motors, so that his brand new baby, North, can be shuttled around in transportation that is practically indestructible!
'Kim-Ye's' SUVs can reportedly withstand gunfire, bombs, landmines and rocket propelled grenades.
But pray tell, how will the four-wheeled tanks stand up against unidentifiable spit-up and poopy diapers???
The Hummer-like SUVs which the manufacturer touts as being 'the world's safest daily vehicles,' sports a blinged out and menacing looking exterior. Each ride is customizable according to the builder and are typically purchased by the rich and famous, the moneyed masses, who have fears about being kidnapped or having their pricey cars hijacked.
Each and every Prombron built is unique in that each customer brings their own special requirements which will be configured into their design. The Prombron's wheelbases come in short and long lengths with the average being about 208 inches. There are three trim levels-- Red Diamond, Black Russian and Black Dragon.
The vehicle which weighs in at over 5,500 pounds has a 6.0 liter V-8 that kicks out 552 horses. The hefty transporter can reach a top speed of 194 and can sprint from 0 to 60 in about 4.9 secs. Fuel-wise, the Prombron is a lush--about 10 mpg city/17 mpg highway.
Back in 2009, Dartz made headlines when it introduced a $1.6 million, bullet-proof vehicle with seats that were made out of whale penis. (Don't adjust your screens, you read it correctly!)
Seats made out of WHALE PENIS?
Ok, 'nuff said....
