If a special vehicles automaker wanted to build a bespoke automobile specifically for China’s wealthiest, it would adorn the automobile with every imaginable luxury appointment and would dedicate its masterpiece after the Year of the Dragon.

In Chinese culture, the dragon represents power, prosperity, and good fortune. Earlier this year, Rolls Royce took this opportunity to offer the elite ‘Year of the Dragon’ Phantom for $1.2 million. Aston Martin also celebrated Chinese New Year with special “Dragon88″ offerings for its Vantage S, Virage, and DBS models, exclusively for the Chinese Market.

Dartz decided to follow suit by introducing a Dragon of its own. The Latvian premium armored vehicle company announced 12 Dartz Prombron Black Dragon edition SUVs for a cosmic sum of $7 million dollars each. What should one expect to receive from a vehicle that’s priced to compete with a 4 bedroom luxury apartment in New York City?

The Dartz Prombron Black Dragon not only receives all the standard armor specifications, but also features a golden Dartz logo encrusted with diamonds and rubies as well as extravagant wheels with inlaid gold machine-gun bullets and dragon designs. For its interior, passengers will enjoy a 42-inch TV, an electrochromic roof, and piano-black flooring. Finally, the special Prombron offers a wheelbase stretched by approximately another two feet. Surprisingly, the $7 million price tag does not entail a dragon penis upholstery package, mythical creatures are harder to find than the whale penis used in previous Prombrons.

Chassis and powertrain comes from GM, with a choice of either a diesel or gasoline V8.
