Sacha Baron Cohen is currently working up his next contribution to cinema. The Dictator is a spoof flick built around a persona very similar to Saddam Hussein, the former ruler of Iraq. Cohen has turned to Russian SUV manufacturer Dartz to supply a few vehicles for his motorcade, and the automaker responded with a set of gold-plated Kombat wagon models. A few shots of the vehicles have made their way to the web, and we have to say that they wouldn't look out of line cruising through the oil-rich sands of pre-invasion Iraq.

The Dictator is set to land in movie theaters in May 2012 with director Larry Charles behind the wheel. Word has it celebrities like Anna Faris, Ben Kingsley and Megan Fox will all make appearances in the flick, though it's unclear what part they'll play in the action. Head over to GT Spirit for a closer look at the gold-plated Kombat wagons.

      Guys, Dartz is Latvian, not Russian. Kinda shows you how much attention AB pays to journalistic integrity. It's like saying that Ford is a Mexican company and Microsoft is Australian. Dartz was founded by a Latvian Russian (a person of Russian descent born in Latvia). Welp, I just got me some OCD points.

      I believe the Dartzs are parked in front of the Plaza de Espana in Seville? Nice stand in for a palace, if I say so myself.
