Mercedes-Benz X-Class Exy 6x6 Concept

Mercedes-Benz X-Class Exy 6x6 Concept news

X-Class 6x6 Concept, penned by Carlex Design, in the works.

CARLEX Design, known for its memorable and unique automotive designs, has penned the X-Class EXY 6x6 Concept.

The brand’s German division – HQ is in Poland – designed the complex version of the Mercedes-Benz X-Class, and it’s oozing with equal parts boldness and quirkiness.

Carlex Design didn’t release any specific information when it launched the images to its Facebook page earlier this week – along with: “See our new, amazing concept design for the Mercedes X-Class EXY 6x6. We are beginning a new week with a strong entry” – but there are a few significant tweaks, other than the addition of two extra wheels.

The ballsy six-wheeler features a longer tray, massive air-intakes, a bonnet scoop, in-your-face fender flares, a light bar up top, and a centralised winch positioned beneath the number plate. A big X marks the spot on the rear tailgate, which is positioned above a new rear bumper. 

Mercedes-Benz’s X250d, which generates 140kW and 450Nm, is currently on sale, but the looming X350d gets the 3.0-litre six-cylinder turbo-diesel and will punch out 190kW and 550Nm.
