Limited Edition Mercedes-Benz Is A 6×6 Carbon Fiber Pickup Truck

Mercedes-Benz X-Class

A Polish auto design and customization company by the name of Carlex Design teamed up with another company called Pickup Design for an incredible project that has built upon the already formidable Mercedes-Benz X-Class vehicle. In this collaboration, the two companies transformed the vehicle into a carbon fiber beast with 6 wheels. They called the project EXY Monster X, and it was announced last year, but only the most enthusiastic collectors and gearheads will be able to have one of these in their driveway when they are eventually on the market. Additionally, Carlex Design announced that this would be a “one-off” production project, so there will only be a limited number of them available in the entire world.

The entire body of the Mercedes-Benz X-Class three-axle pickup was modified so the whole body was made out of carbon fiber. It was then lowered and widened, then equipped with ceramic-carbon discs, which can be implemented on the race track. As an extra touch, they added a lightbar on to the roof, and huge fenders to accommodate larger off-road tires. The car even has a bed box coated with protective structural paint. The car is also equipped with two winches at the front and rear, which means that it can easily be used as a track safety car.

According to Motor1, the companies have not put forward any details about powertrain tweaks. For example, the stock turbodiesel 3.0-liter V6 with 258 horsepower (190 kilowatts) and 406 pound-feet (550 Newton-meters) of torque that the original version packed may not be enough to keep up with all of the customizations that have been made to the vehicle. There is also no information about the controls for the three-axle setup, leaving questions about whether a full 6×6 mode would be possible.

Carlex Design makes a variety of different customized luxury vehicles, and this will only be the newest offering from an already successful company. In fact, they are responsible for creating the Mercedes G-Class, which is originally a military vehicle that has been top-ranked among the most in-demand cars since 1979. This is also the company behind the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta, which is obviously among the most expensive and powerful vehicles that they have worked on. However, many of the customizations on this company’s most popular offerings in the past have been mostly cosmetic, whereas this new take on the six-wheeled version of the Mercedes-Benz X-Class involves more in-depth customizations and modifications.

Unfortunately, there is no official announcement on the company’s website about when the vehicle will actually be available for purchase. Although, for the vast majority of us, anything that this company offers is likely far out of our price range, and only reserved for the biggest spenders, as even small cosmetic accessories for your car could cost thousands of dollars.

What do you think? Will you be making a special order of this vehicle when it hits the market despite the potentially astronomical price tag? Or will you opt to get one of the new Tesla cyber trucks instead?

Mark Horowitz is a graduate of Brandeis University with a degree in political science. Horowitz could have had a job at one of the top media organizations in the United States, but when working as an intern, he found that the journalists in the newsroom were confined by the anxieties and sensibilities of their bosses. Horowitz loved journalism, but wanted more freedom to pursue more complex topics than you would find on the evening news. Around the same time, he began to notice that there was a growing number of independent journalists developing followings online by sharing their in-depth analysis of advanced or off-beat topics. It wasn't long before Horowitz quit his internship with a large New York network to begin publishing his own material online.
