Carlex Design’s Exy Monster X Concept Is The Meanest, Most Eccentric X-Class Yet

Poland-based Carlex Design wants people to know it has a division called Pickup Design that helps transform ordinary workhorses into custom creations tailored to its customers’ wishes.

Thus, it searched for a way to promote its activity than to create some outlandish projects. The new Exy Monster X Concept definitely fits the bill, as it imagines a radically modified Mercedes-Benz X-Class with three driven axles and a wild widebody kit.

Oddly enough for a pickup truck, the entire bodywork is made of carbon fiber — including the aggressively-designed bed bars. Speaking of the load box, it’s covered with a yellow protective paint that provides a stark contrast with the vehicle’s carbon black exterior.

The same yellow hue is used on the brake calipers, tow hooks, and the bar for the roof-mounted lights. The seats are yellow as well, but that’s the only interior element we can spot through the heavily tinted windows. Knowing Carlex, the cabin should be in the same vein as the exterior.

The tuner says the X-Class donor vehicle was significantly lowered and widened courtesy of huge fender extensions also made from carbon fiber. Other striking design details include the tailgate’s X-shaped design, massive wheels shod with Bridgestone Potenza high-performance tires, and new bumpers that feature a winch at the front and wide trapezoidal tailpipes at the rear.

By the way, the front and rear winches aren’t for off-roading. According to Carlex, the Monster X Concept is configured as a track safety car, which also explains the roof-mounted emergency lights. Come to think of it, the carbon-ceramic brake discs may also come in handy on the track.

While only a concept, for now, the Monster X will “soon become the king of highways and global tracks,” according to Carlex.
