The Mercedes-Benz X-Class finishes creation in May perhaps, but tuners are nevertheless exhibiting that it is really doable to make anything wild out of the German brand’s limited-lived pickup. As an illustration, look at out this 6-wheeled truck, which a short while ago sold in the Netherlands.
To accommodate the more axle, you can find a custom subframe. There is certainly also a three.937-inch (10-centimeter) suspension lift. The more peak enables for installing new wheels with huge, off-highway tires.
Created as a one particular-off in 2020, the 6-wheeled X-Class unquestionably has a striking existence. The exterior is a brown metallic colour that evokes the shade of rootbeer. There are chrome bumpers at the two finishes, and substantial, matte-black fenders accent the sides. A tubular-steel model bar from Carlex Structure runs together the sides of the mattress and over the roof. Inside the cargo location, you can find diamond-sample metal. A “6 Wheeler” decal adorns the tailgate.
The interior remains largely inventory. There are black leather seats and silver trim. A 6-wheeler emblem seems on the passenger aspect of the dashboard. The digicam procedure nevertheless operates, even with the prolonged mattress.
The X350d drivetrain remains inventory. A three.-liter turbodiesel V6 would make 255 horsepower (190 kilowatts) and 406 pound-ft (550 Newton-meters) of torque. It runs via a 7-velocity automatic. There are no clear controls for the drivetrain in the cabin, which indicates this might be a whole-time procedure.
Carlex Structure toyed with the idea of developing an X-Class 6X6 and launched two renderings of vehicles like this. The to start with of them appeared more creation-ready but nevertheless experienced a pumped-up human body with a hood scoop and gentle bar on the roof. The illustration that arrived next was more fanciful by adopting panels with obvious rivets on to the human body, a carbon-fiber hood, and a gold-painted pickup mattress.
