Carlex Design Waves Magic Wand Over Mercedes-AMG C43’s Interior

Unless you already consider the cabin of your Mercedes-AMG C43 to be sufficiently sporty, you will probably want to take a look at just how extreme it can become under the right tutelage.

Known for providing extensive makeovers to just about any car interior you can think of, Carlex Design really went all out for this project, ditching most leather and plastic surfaces in favor of dark Alcantara with red contrast stitching.

The red contrasting theme is found throughout the car, on the seats, door panels, center console, upper and lower dashboard, steering wheel and even in the back, where the tuner left its mark by dropping a couple of logos.

As for the patterns used in the design, they are quite dynamic in nature, turning a half sporty, half elegant interior into something worthy of a hypercar, which the C43 is by no means.

Just to throw a few numbers at you, the Mercedes-AMG C43 is powered by a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine, producing 367 PS (362 HP) and 520 Nm (383 lb-ft) of torque, sent down with the help of a nine-speed 9G-Tronic automatic transmission and a 4MATIC all-wheel drive system.

Keep it straight, and it will do 0-62 mph (100 km/h) in 4.7 seconds, 60 mph (96 km/h) in 4.6 seconds, and max out at an electronically limited 155 mph (250 km/h).
