Carlex Design Revives Mercedes G-Class G463 Interior While Staying True To The 90s

When you get so good at customizing luxury interiors, there’s probably no project that you won’t take on with the utmost confidence in yourself. That’s Carlex Design for you!

Their latest project here involves a 1990 Mercedes-Benz G-Class G463, a model that came out with an upgraded interior back in the day, having wooden accents and optional leather upholstery – though I bet Mercedes-Benz didn’t have anything like this in mind.

In typical Carlex Design fashion, just about every area that employed the use of plastics has been covered by leather, even the air vents!

Of course, the leather itself looks very retro, which is really fascinating to see. They also used brown velvet-like nubuck for the headliner, whereas the stereo and the buttons throughout the cabin are obviously still made of plastic.

Everything else is wood, of course, but again it’s the leather that grabs your attention as soon as you start looking at all the details carefully. It feels like you’re looking at a car interior made up of leather found on really old furniture pieces.

Also, not to nitpick, but that steering wheel would have looked better if it was covered in leather, don’t you think?
