Today we received the announcement of the Dartz Aladeen Edition Prombron, a gold-coated version of the real armored SUV from the Latvian customizer whose tastes know few bounds -- much like its new signature client, Sacha Baron Cohen's Admiral General Aladeen from the upcoming movie, "The Dictator." Here's how much it will cost to drive like the ruler of all Wadiya. Dartz touts their armored SUVs as the world's most expensive, and with prices north of $1 million for the Monaco Red Edition, no one disputes that. Built in Latvia with custom armor, blast-proof windows and V8 engines of up to 400 hp, Dartz claims its vehicles can withstand hits from rocket-propelled grenades while swaddling passengers in luxury, although no one has recorded the outcome of such a test to date. Dartz's largest claim to fame so far involved a custom Prombron interior featuring leather from whale penises -- an option dropped after opposition and free publicity from Greenpeace and the World Wildlife Foundation.
