On the Classic-youngtimers.com portal, photos of an unusual six-wheeled pickup truck Mercedes-Benz X-Class from the Carlex Design tuning studio have appeared. According to the website, the car has already been sold, but the amount of the deal has not been specified.
Previously, such a modification of the X-Class model was not reported. From the description it follows that the pickup received a Carlex Design subframe, increased ground clearance, black plastic fender flares, an arch in the body and wheels with custom rims and off-road tires. In addition, the stock grille has been replaced with another GTR-style grille.
This version is called the X 350D 6 Wheeler. The pickup is powered by a 3.0-liter V6 turbodiesel, which produces 258 horsepower and is combined with a seven-speed automatic.
The author of the publication notes that the creation of the six-wheeled X-Class was inspired by the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6X6, equipped with a 544-horsepower twin-turbo V8 engine. However, they wanted to create a more practical vehicle, and that is why the choice fell on a commercial pickup.
In 2020, Mercedes-Benz completed production and sales of the X-Class model, which was based on the chassis from Nissan Navara. The pickup was retired just a few years after it entered the market, with no prospect of a second generation and no successor.
