Sith Lords Be Like, “Mmmm” With Kahn’s Custom Mercedes-Benz X-Class

One of the most insane makeovers of the Mercedes-Benz X-Class came from Carlex last year and had a whopping price tag of €105,000 ($116,237/£92,949). Now, Kahn’s interpretation is not exactly restrained either, nor cheap, for that matter.

In exchange for £54,999 ($68,736/€62,034), the British tuner will sell you the pictured right-hand drive example, with only 101 miles (163 km) on the clock and one previous owner. It’s powered by a 3.0-liter V6 diesel, which makes 258 PS (254 hp / 190 kW) and 550 Nm (406 lb-ft) of torque, paired to a 7-speed automatic transmission.

Unless you are unfamiliar with the modern Mercedes-Benz lineup, it’s impossible not to spot the changes. The black grille, which matches the rest of the exterior, has an AMG flair, and further down, the bumper has been reworked. Contributing to the revised stance of the premium pickup truck are the fender flares, 22-inch rims available in black, dark window surrounds and privacy rear glass.

For the interior, Kahn has chosen quilted soft leather with red contrast stitching, which has been applied to the front and rear seats, dashboard, door panels and center armrest. The specially branded and embossed seat studs and a few other features complete the makeover.

In spite of the Nissan Navara platform, this is a Benz, so it stays true to its kind by offering a wider selection of gear, including an eight-speaker sound system, electrically adjustable front seats with heating, satellite navigation, Bluetooth, DAB radio, cruise control, dusk-sensing headlights, rain-sensing wipers, parking sensors and many more.
