Dartz Black Snake revealed for China

 Dartz Black Snake revealed for China
Dartz Black Snake - low res - 25.1.2013

Reportedly based on the Mercedes GL63 AMG

Dartz has announced plans to offer a new Black Snake in China.

Designed to commemorate the "year of the snake," the model is based on the Mercedes GL63 AMG and is the firm's first non-armored vehicle.

In typical Dartz fashion, the Black Snake has a boxy exterior which begs for attention. Once you get past the gold accents and the diamond-encrusted hood ornament, it is interesting to note the truck has an aluminum body which is made using the same "kapsula” technology that was first employed on Joseph Stalin’s armored car.

The S-Class inspired cabin is elegantly appointed with wood trim, shark skin floor mats and a Bang & Olufsen audio system. Buyers can also select from a variety of exotic leathers including snake, crocodile, ostrich and whale penis.

Power is provided by a twin-turbo 5.5-liter V8 engine that develops 557 HP (410 kW) and 760 Nm (560 lb-ft) of torque. It is connected to a seven-speed automatic transmission and an all-wheel drive system which enables the model to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 4.9 seconds.

While the $1,000,000 (€743,165) price tag is certainly steep, owners will receive 56 grams of Mottra caviar delivered monthly for two years.

can't this cruelty to animals be stopped? when will humans realise that we are destroying the earth? NASA found that we are losing 11.5 meters of ice every year...imagine in 30 years we won't have ice on the north and south poles....imagine what could happen?

Like Bette Midler's caracter in "Hocus Poces" asked: Tell me, friend...what is this contraption? And it's purpose??" Seriously ugly. Seriously disgusting and it will burn fuel like no other car. What the hell is it?

Honestly I like the design, it looks nice but it is sad they need to kill all these animals for the interior materials. However, the interior design looks axactly the same as the one in the S class tuned by TopCar

Shark skin for floor mats, REALLY? Or exotic leathers that includes whale penis amongst others. I mean this just screams anti-conservation to me. While at it, how about using a rhino horn as an option for a gear lever. To hell with this hideous car, i hope nobody buys it and please drop the caviar act, it's stupid.

Finally just what we need! Even though I was hoping for a dead panda as a steering wheel and couple of dolphins as pedals :( Indeed; an every day necessity. But seriously: what kind of a twisted Chinese c*nt is going to buy this piece of immorality?
