18.05.2015: World’s Most Expensive - RussoBaltique Vodka, featured in "House Of Cards" https://vimeo.com/120876099 and World’s Most Expensive Caviar – RussoBaltique Imperial Prix 1912 - This exclusive set of DARTZ car ownership privileges went to Cannes Film Festival. At the event’s charity auction,
"Dartz offered up for sale its RussoBaltique line of vodka, as featured in the hit show House Of Cards (see below), as well as its RussoBaltique Imperial Prix 1912 brand caviar, considered to be among the finest and most expensive in the world. The company often includes the items with the sale of one of its vehicles.
At the auction, a bottle of the vodka (in its 'Table Edition' glass bottle) plus a case of the black caviar with 24k gold finally went for 125,000 euros (approximately $138,800). Dartz is quick to point out that this amount was more expensive than many of the luxury cars on display in Cannes."
Dartz’s visit to Cannes traces the steps of the founders of the original RussoBaltique brand, A. Nagel and V. Mikhailov, who in 1911 left the company’s headquarters in Riga, Latvia to travel to the south of France. They reached their destination in a total 195 hours, giving them an average speed of about 10 mph. And incredibly, they did this while driving a convertible in the middle of winter. read more...
"What do you buy when an ordinary luxury car is just not good enough? How about a Dartz Prombron?
This monster is built on a Mercedes-Benz chassis. The list of options and features is breathtaking: V8 or V12 six-litre engine, a top speed of 194mph (312km/h), armour-plating, bullet-proof windows, electrified door handles, a choice of exotic leather interiors, dual petrol tanks, signal jammer... the list is almost endless.
The vehicle, which costs at least $1.1m (£730,000; €1m), is the brainchild of Leonard Yankelovich. He was born and grew up in Latvia, when it was still part of the Soviet Union. He trained as an engineer, and made a fortune from customising windows and other car parts in the 1990s." read more...
