Carlex Design Builds Another Sporty Mercedes V-Class

We’re starting to think Carlex has a “thing” for the Mercedes Vito, since this isn’t the first tuned example we’ve seen them put together.

The exterior is pretty much identical to that of another model the tuner modified last year. It features an aggressive body kit with a custom front spoiler, side skirts, a rear diffuser, custom exhaust tips, new wheels and decals.

However inside, it’s a completely different story. Where that Vito had a black and white leather theme, this one is rocking all-black aesthetics with white and lime green contrast stitching here and there.

The lime green can be found on the steering wheel and across the seats, both in front and in the rear. It works pretty well with the overall dark cabin, adding to its “charged up” contrast.

Still, we feel like the tuner could have went a step further, as they often do, and put some leather across the dashboard and on the door panels – like they did on this old Viano.

Carlex says that the tuning kit will be available by the end of this year for the entire V-Class range.
