Carlex Design is targeting 1,998 owners of the Mercedes-Benz X-Class, with two different tuning upgrades.
Offered in 999 units each, the first package (note – not the truck) turns the Nissan Navara-based pickup into a more capable off-roader, hence its new name: Exy Off-Road.
Priced from €13,995 (equal to $17,277) in Europe, it adds a special wrap on the outside, together with a new body kit, plastic cladding, bulging fenders, winch, roof-mounted lights, chunky all-terrain tires and jacked-up suspension.
Black is the dominating color inside, where this tuned X-Class gets leather upholstery, glossy accents and carbon fiber trim, in addition to the ‘Exy’ lettering embroided into the seats and the ‘Carlex Design’ logo on the dashboard.
The second tuning job is called ‘Urban’ and it will set you back for €16,995 ($20,980). This one adds a specific exterior finish, along with a different body kit with carbon fiber inserts, wheels and lowered suspension.
Inside is where the action takes place, as the cabin has become more upscale with the addition of leather on just about every visible surface. The red-finished leather is contrasted by white stitching, and this version of the X-Class also gets carbon fiber trim, glossy accents and the ‘Carlex Design’ logo.
So, given that customers need to provide the tuner with an X-Class before they can turn it into either the Off-Road or Urban editions, with the base model starting from €37,295 ($46,040) in Germany, would you actually do it?
