The Polish-based Carlex Design company has a division called Pickup Design that helps to turn ordinary business pickups into personalized creations tailored to the wishes of their customers.
In this way, the tuners seek to promote their business rather than create unusual projects. The new Exy Monster X Concept definitely fits into the definition as it is a radically modified Mercedes-Benz X-Class with three drive axles and a brutal body kit.
Strange for a pickup, but the whole body is made of carbon fibre – including aggressively designed rollers. Speaking for the load, it is covered with a yellow protective paint that gives a bright contrast to the exterior of the car.
The same yellow paint is also used for braking devices, towing hooks and ceiling lights. The seats are yellow, but this is the only part of the interior that we can see through the darkened windows. As usual for Carlex, the cab should be as brutal as the exterior.
The tuner says the weight of X-Class is significantly reduced and expanded thanks by the huge fenders made from carbon fibre. Other impressive details include the X-shaped rear door design, massive Bridgestone Potenza tires and new bumpers with a front winch and wide trapezoidal tailpipe.
By the way, the front and rear winches are not for off-road. According to the Carlex Monster, the Mercedes-Benz X-Class tuning is configured as a safety car on the track, which explains the emergency lights mounted on the roof. The carbon-ceramic brake discs can also be used on the track.
While this is just a concept, for now, Monster X “will soon become the king of highways and tracks”, according to Carlex.
