The folks over at Carlex Design seem to quite enjoy kitting out double-cab bakkies, having given many a pick-up an extreme exterior makeover and a plush cabin. And, despite already offering a conversion for the Volkswagen Amarok, the Poland-based firm has now released a slightly different option.

Just 500 units will be produced, each bearing a 13-piece body kit, mud-flaps and an individually numbered plaque.

The add-on parts – which include bumpers (fore and aft), chunky wheelarch extensions and a bonnet guard – have all been coated in special protective paint. The kit furthermore includes bold body decals and 18-inch alloys wrapped in 265/60 BF Goodrich All Terrain rubber.

Inside, you’ll find swathes of Nappa leather, decorated with “unique seams and quilting patterns”. A new steering wheel, wrapped in a mix of conventional and perforated leather, is also included, along with fresh floor mats.

And what if you want to give the Amarok’s 3,0-litre V6 turbodiesel heart a fresh soundtrack? Well, on the list of options (which also includes a Pedders suspension lift kit and roof-mounted lights), you’ll find a custom exhaust system equipped with Maxhaust’s sound booster, which the firm promises will give the bakkie “a true rally character”.

The price for the conversion (sans extras)? Some €13 995 (that’s about R230 000)…
