Get noticed at Cannes - drive a huge armoured limo…

So, the Dartz Prombron Iron Diamond. It's difficult to know where to begin. It may not come as a total shock to discover that this is a Russian vehicle. Whether it's mega-yachts, football teams or energy supply, Russia's emergence from the Cold War as a titanic global financial force is one of the defining factors of our complicated age.
Who knows what Marx or Lenin would have made of it all. A century-long struggle for the perfect society, and you end up with President Putin and a load of Croesus-rich oligarchs who might fancy an armoured car with a sex toy in the glovebox. Or maybe a sex toy with a giant SUV thrown in. Either way, I'm not sure if this is what Gorbachev had in mind when he ushered in perestroika.
