Cannes Film Festival in a Dartz Prombron
Get noticed at Cannes - drive a huge armoured limo…

"About 70 per cent of the people want the armoured material just because they can," Igor says, "and maybe 20 or 30 per cent of them really need it. The market we're really interested in is Brazil. Everything in Brazil is bulletproof. Even the Smart cars."
While rumbling up and down Cannes' famous Croisette promenade, it suddenly occurs to me that we could wreak untold havoc on this place and probably get away with it. Anarchic thoughts of parking our Russian tank on the festival's red carpet give way to simple, pathetic posing; although this is primarily a forum for film producers to buy and sell their wares, it's also where Europe's rich - idle or otherwise - have come to see and be seen.
