The Mercedes-Benz X-Class may not have been around all that long, but the folks over at Carlex Design have already released a handful of extreme body kits (including a Maybach-inspired version) for the Stuttgart-based brand’s bakkie. But this latest “X-Class Exy 6×6 Concept” takes things to the next level.
Yes, the Poland-based tuner’s “Pickup Design” division is in the process of building a six-wheeled X-Class with a suitably lengthened loadbed. Though technically still a concept, there’s little doubt the firm will eventually put it into (likely limited) production.
While Carlex Design hasn’t yet released much in the way of technical information, it seems likely the 6×6 concept is based on the X350d 4Matic, which employs a 3,0-litre V6 turbodiesel worth 190 kW and 550 N.m.
As you can see in the accompanying images, the tuner has handed the Navara-based X-Class not only an extra axle, but also extreme off-road rubber, widened fenders, unique panels above the two rearmost axles, dual-exit exhausts and a bold X-motif on the tailgate (which also gains a cheeky spoiler).
Up front, you’ll find various new items, including larger air intakes a fresh grille, a bonnet protector, a bonnet vent and even a winch, while a large LED lightbar is mounted on the roof. In short, it looks something more like the original X-Class concept … just with two extra wheels.
With bated breath we wait…
