This pioneering vehicle was built using a Mercedes chassis as its foundation.

In the early 1990s, DARTZ gained significant recognition for its armored vehicles, catering to high-profile clients such as government officials, celebrities, and business tycoons. The company expanded its product line to include luxury BONDs (Bespoke Opulent Noble Drives), leveraging its expertise in security and opulent customization to create unique and exclusive vehicles.
