Carlex's EXY 6x6 X-Class concept gets the track treatment

THE TRACK isn’t a natural habitat for a 6x6 rig, but that didn’t stop the creative minds behind Polish-based vehicle customiser Carlex Design from applying some artistic license to its latest iteration of the Mercedes-Benz X-Class EXY 6x6 Concept.

Called the EXY Monster X Concept, Carlex Design envisions a three-axle X-Class with a gratuitously wide body made from carbon fibre, while its chassis sits on a lowered suspension setup, track widened and its standard brakes swapped out with a set of carbon-ceramic items.

Round the back the all-black EXY Monster X’s massive cargo bed is given a striking yellow paint job with a rear winch fitted to the back of the cab.

Complementing its motorsports intent, the EXY Monster X cops a bank of external hazard lights on its roof, and comes fitted with road-oriented tyres finished with huge motorsports-inspired tyre sidewall letterings.

Like the X-Class EXY 6x6 Concept, Carlex Design didn’t reveal any technical details of the EXY Monster X Concept, or if they have any solid plans on building one, though according to their Facebook page, the company claims it has “left the design studio to soon become the king of highways and global tracks” under Carlex’s Pickup Design brand.
