Dartz Ditches Whale Penis Upholstery

You probably remember the $1.5 million ultra luxury SUV from Russia that featured ruby red matte paint, gold-plated bulletproof windows, 22" Kremlin Red Star bulletproof wheels, Tungsten exhaust,Tungsten and white gold gauges with diamonds and rubies, white gold diamond and ruby encrusted badges - grill, side and dashboard, Special edition Vertu mobile phone with "alert" button, additional outside kevlar coating, a Rogue Acoustic Audio System and whale penis leather upholstery. Well, it seems that they’re backing out of the hole whale skin business.

Unfortunately, this show did not last very long. The weird interior choice got a lot of negative response from Greenpeace, the World Wildlife Fund, and apparently even Pamela Anderson. So the company is forced to rethink their choice for the interior.

The Russians were very thrilled with the idea of saving the whales, and made this official statement (typos are theirs):

We have no any ideas to kill the whale or something like that. All we want - to make just luxury car. Real luxury car which will be world number one car. Our brand was started at 1869 when in Riga was opened Coach Factory or Russo Baltiysky Vagonnij Zavod - PBVZ, and first products was luxury train coaches. At 1907 was made a decision to open Car Department, and at 1909 first car left factory - the name of this car was RussoBalt.

"This was luxury and sport cars. At 1911 specially for Monaco Rally car got french style name - RussoBaltique. At 1912 factory made world first 4 x 4 wheel drive car, and at 1914 - armored car. All we want to unite luxury and armoring traditions of RussoBalt factory in one car, which brand celebrated 100 years now. At 1922 RussoBalt was renamed to PROMBRON'"

"We just looking for most expensive products for this car - and that's why we choosed whale penis leathure when we checked it is most of most. After wave of protest we realised our mistake and make a decision not to use natural leathure at all. We will focus on world most advanced nanotechnologies to achieve interior highest quality using artificial materials which also was never used for cars. We want to tell our hello to all whales: "Our Sea Brothers! We all know that earth are stand on three whales - we will keep You live! We don't Earth fall down to Ocean!
