Mercedes X-Class Six-Wheeler Exists And Someone Bought It

The Mercedes-Benz X-Course ends generation in May, but tuners are nevertheless demonstrating that it really is possible to make some thing wild out of the German brand’s small-lived pickup. As an illustration, check out this six-wheeled truck, which lately bought in the Netherlands.

To accommodate the extra axle, there is a custom made subframe. There is also a three.937-inch (10-centimeter) suspension carry. The extra height allows for installing new wheels with massive, off-road tires.

Created as a a single-off in 2020, the six-wheeled X-Course definitely has a putting existence. The exterior is a brown metallic colour that evokes the shade of rootbeer. There are chrome bumpers at equally ends, and huge, matte-black fenders accent the sides. A tubular-metallic model bar from Carlex Style runs alongside the sides of the mattress and over the roof. Inside the cargo location, there is diamond-pattern steel. A “six Wheeler” decal adorns the tailgate.

The interior continues to be mainly inventory. There are black leather seats and silver trim. A six-wheeler emblem seems on the passenger facet of the dashboard. The digicam process nevertheless will work, even with the prolonged mattress.

The X350d drivetrain continues to be inventory. A three.-liter turbodiesel V6 would make 255 horsepower (a hundred ninety kilowatts) and 406 pound-feet (550 Newton-meters) of torque. It runs by a seven-pace computerized. There are no obvious controls for the drivetrain in the cabin, which suggests this could possibly be a whole-time process.

Carlex Style toyed with the concept of setting up an X-Course 6X6 and introduced two renderings of vans like this. The first of them seemed a lot more generation-all set but nevertheless had a pumped-up overall body with a hood scoop and gentle bar on the roof. The illustration that arrived up coming was a lot more fanciful by adopting panels with obvious rivets on to the overall body, a carbon-fiber hood, and a gold-painted pickup mattress.
