In case you haven’t heard of Russian SUV manufacturer Dartz, here is all you need to know; they create the world’s most insane and heavily armoured SUVs available. In line with this ethos, the company has revealed its latest creation with the Dartz Prombron Black Shark.
Based around the platform of the Mercedes-Benz GL63 AMG, the Prombron Black Shark features a completely custom body as well as some serious engine modifications. From a styling perspective, the Prombron Black Shark is definitely a case of function over form. It looks completely unlike the GL63 AMG on which it is based with every single panel completely new. Additionally, a massive set of wheels have been added.
Some of the key features include electrochromatic windows and B7-grade armour with the body made from Kevlar and titanium. As a result, the car can withstand magnetic mines. Elsewhere, the Prombron Black Shark uses a bulletproof rotating front grille to ensure no damage can be inflicted to the engine. A fingerprint scanner and retina scanner has also been implemented for additional safety. Another interesting feature is the disappearing door handles which Dartz says act as an “anti-paparazzi shock-device”.
As for power, it is equally insane. When fitted with a heavily modified variant of AMGs twin-turbocharged 6.0-litre V12 engine, the Prombron Black Shark is said to develop 1500 hp. Additionally, the smaller AMG twin-turbo 5.5-litre V8 is also available.
Discussing the car, Dartz boss Leo Yankelovich said, “Let’s face it; you are bored of serial-made cars. We all are. Downsizing, eco-friendly recycled plastic materials and law regulations are making ways to stand out among the best in the car industry very inconvenient.”
