The Mercedes-Benz X-Class has been getting a lot of attention, with tuning firms handing the German automaker’s bakkie extra kit and, as with the case of Race! South Africa, more power. Now British outfit Kahn Design has unveiled its menacing widebody kit for the premium pick-up.

Based on the Mercedes-Benz X250d 4Matic double cab, which makes use of a 2,3-litre four-pot, the most notable addition to the modified X-Class is the blacked-out grille resembling the panamericana item found on Mercedes’ AMG models.

The exterior package further include a slightly revised front bumper, extended wheel arches and privacy glass. The 22-inch alloy wheels can also be specified in a black finish.

Step inside the double cab and you’ll notice reupholstered front and rear seats which trimmed in quilted leather, and feature embossed studs donning the tuner’s name.  Red contrast stitching adds a dash of colour to the cabin. The dashboard, gear lever, centre armrest and signature Kahn Design door panels are also finished in hide.

As mentioned, the kit only comprises of cosmetic updates, and thus no tweaks has been made to the Nissan-derived mill, which, as standard, churns out 140 kW and 450 N.m of torque (on tap from 3 750 and a low 1 500 r/min, respectively).
