Dartz: We have two factories, St Petersburg and R___, we are based on this historical places and
for some of cars we use some pieces of historical metals or something because some rich people

car is at ____ a half, it’s a copy, 100% copy which look very close to this car but quite different.
This is a copy of car which was in Monte Carlo in 1912 rally winner and it is located in Monaco.
Dartz: We start in 1998 when we decide to make a car, we start to study the question so the most
secure system of armouring of cars is so called soviet capsula, capsula means when you build a
first body, armoured box where person sit inside and after that you build all other parts of car.
Dartz: I have two backgrounds. I am soviet engineer mechanic and I was a soviet soldier of
Dartz: Here is lot of super cars, so called super cars, plastic and metal sheet, while velocity four
tonnes of armoured ___ steel.
Dartz: Official tests are 3 or 5 bullets but for example if man have ___ he will use 30 bullets. Our
car is fast enough to drive away very fast, it’s not like elephant which you will shoot and it will
run, no, we have engine which can make it 240 kilometres.
Dartz: Oh the price of luxury car we start from 500,000 and going up.
Dartz: Before we start work in European market, and before we move factory from St Petersburg

gangster rap stars yes. That what same.
Dartz: This car we call lady’s own. Ladies now like big SUVs but not all of them can drive nice
and also they want to use a lipstick to paint the glasses and so on, so this car is tank and yeah she
can drive and paint and nothing will happen with lady.
Dartz: To avoid hijacking there are no door. There is only one from right side door to put this hand
bar. This is three door coupe.
Dartz: Now we sign contract with China and the main question is Leo, how many eagles you se the
silver eagles on this car, how many eagles will be on this car, maybe can you put one more eagle,
the second question was one more funnier, you see the stars on the wheels, Leo can we take off the
stars when we will pass the border because we are not sure that Chinese custom will allow us to go
because it’s our country’s symbol and maybe we will have a problem so this is Chinese customers,
gangster rappers they have other questions. Can you make some security safe for some big guns,
there, there, there, to push the button gun go up and so on.
Dartz: For gangster rappers the number one for them to be different with other cars it is impossible
we are one and only car which have no two similar cars every car is different so any gangster
rapper can be for example for them we created so called golden bullet wheels, in reality we created
them for Arabians.
Dartz: If we are selling safety car we must be responsible and we must know. We are not like for
example some Toyota oh in two million of our cars brake doesn’t work, send us car back, but what
we will tell oh sorry our glass was not so bullet proof, come back alive so what we can tell it’s not
