Ten Things We Learned This Week
Modified 6x6 Mercs, suitcase scooters and flying Leons: it’s another weird week in cars

You can now buy a modified 6x6 Mercedes with matching baseball bats
Dartz, Top Gear’s favourite Latvian car company bar none, has announced its latest assault on common sense: the Dartz Red Russian.
It features a fetching pink camouflage paintjob, floor coverings made from shark leather, dancing female silhouettes on each side and, naturally, a case containing painted custom baseball bats should you fancy a quick game of rounders outside Knutsford Services.
Not sure? Dartz boss Leo Yankelovich sent TG this characteristically wonderful email to explain the inspiration behind his new 6x6:
“No worries - after Russians saw the last 6x6 - they asked for more :))).
Attached are the next "babies" which happened after sex between MRAP and G-Wagen during Die HARD 5 :). As we think this baby not so ugly like original 6x6 - but not sure other people will think so.
Carpets and interior - from blue whale enemy - white shark. It look like we will make also Camel Trophy edition - for Middle East, Red Russian - for Russia, and Yakzhemash!!! - for Kazakstan :).
Maybe London needs own edition - but I think Russian will fit London.”
