The X-Class never quite hit the mark but Carlex Design has breathed some life into the failed double-cab bakkie from Stuttgart and it looks quite convincing, don’t you think?
The Mercedes-Benz X-Class had a short life. It was revealed in 2017 and in May 2020 it was announced that the production of the Navara-based X-Class would come to an end at Nissan’s plant in Barcelona, Spain, which has since shut down completely.
Nonetheless, these developments haven’t stopped tuning specialist, Carlex Design, from getting to work on the X-Class to create a beefed-up bakkie that might get a few enthusiasts riled up.
The upgrade is called the Exy Extreme+ and as for the styling upgrades, the X-Class wears a striking body kit that incorporates a new bumper, grille design, headlights design, bonnet lip, unique taillight frame design, wheel arch extensions, a rear spoiler as well as a redesigned rear bumper. This X-Class rides on 18-inch alloy wheels and is also equipped with a front skid plate, custom side steps, sports bar and an LED light bar which completes the look.
The interior comes with black leather and Alcantara trimmings for the seats, dashboard and doors panels while yellow accents add a splash of colour to the interior. A custom steering wheel is also fitted which adds a sportier touch. This X-Class by Carlex Design also boasts a 100 mm suspension lift as well as a new exhaust system.
