Merc’s x-class plays rough

Saturday Star - - MOTO RING L U X U R Y -

IF YOU’VE ever won­dered how cool the Mercedes-benz X-class would look as a butched-up 6x6, Car­lex De­sign is here to an­swer your prayers.

The Pol­ish tun­ing firm has re­leased sketches of its lat­est project, the X-class­based EXY 6x6, and although it is strictly a con­cept for now, we wouldn’t put it past the team to build a few of these.

No in­for­ma­tion on the 6x6 has been re­leased as yet, but it is clearly geared for some se­ri­ous bundu bash­ing, with its raised ride height, off-road tyres, pro­tec­tive cladding and winch.

The tuner has added plenty of flair to this cre­ation with a num­ber of unique de­sign touches, like the sten­cil-style roll bar and black x-shaped tail­gate.

It’s not clear at this stage what pow­ers this X-class, but we’d like to think that, at the very least, the boys at Car­lex have used the 190kw/550nm V6-pow­ered X350d as a start­ing point.

You might also want to rather look at Car­lex De­sign’s May­bach-in­spired X-class EXY Yacht­ing. | IOL Mo­tor­ing
