Carlex’s Outlandish 6×6 Mercedes-Benz X-Class Is Ready For The Mars Mission

Work has just commenced on what’s bound to be the most outlandish Mercedes-Benz X-Class ever built.

The project is the brain child of Carlex Design’s pickup division, Pickup Design, and will see an X-Class transformed into a six-wheeled beast that could very well match the G63 6×6 for off-road capability and on-road presence.

These renderings of the vehicle show that it will enjoy a modified front fascia that includes a heavy-duty winch, reshaped bumper, menacing bumper, and an LED light bar on the roof. Elsewhere, the pickup will get off-road wheels and tires, flared wheel arches and new side steps.

As with any six-wheeled conversion, the most significant alterations will be made at the rear. Carlex will stretch the pickup’s bed to ensure there’s room for an extra axle and two more wheels. A series of alterations will also be made to the shape of the pickup’s bed, including widened arches, a new tailgate, and the fitment of a small lip spoiler. Additionally, Carlex will fit sharp rails to both sides of the bed.

Carlex hasn’t provided all that many details describing exactly how it will go about turning these renderings into a reality.

However, if the finished product does end up looking this good, X-Class owners may start lining up for their own 6×6 conversions.

    Its amazing, i think it’s the best concept design Carlex has done yet. Its so good that they should produce a concept design with 2 axle version also.

    Vehicles don’t get much crazier than this…
    Actually the Raptor and Silverado 6×6 are crazier. For one, they are bigger. 2, they have wayy more horsepower. 3, they don’t have a spoiler

  • I really think this whole 6×6 trend is crazy. but it sells sadly.
