The Mercedes-Benz X-Class did not last long on the market due to slow sales. Still, there are people who are fancy of the X-Class and the best proof is that someone decided to convert his pickup truck into an insane six-wheeler.
Sold through Classic Youngtimers, this six-wheeler started its path as a regular X 350d. and the previous owner managed to have a custom subframe installed allowing it to fit the third axle along with two additional wheels. The bespoke X-Class was built as an off-road ready to be pushed to its limits.
If we dive further into the upgrades made to the off-road, it’s obvious that the suspension has been jacked up by 10 cm making room for the custom-made alloy wheels mounted with off-road tires. Plus it brings a flared front and rear wheel arches to suit better its bold new exterior.
For more visual stand out the X-Class got its front grille inspired by the Panamericana grille found on the AMG models, while the new axle, the bed of the truck was extended and equipped with a roll bar and cage signed by Carlex Design. The ‘6 Wheeler’ decal on the front of the front to put more accent on the extra axle and wheels.
The engine still remains the same as the stock vehicle offering up to 255 horsepower and 550 Newton meters from the powerful 3.0-liter turbocharged diesel V6 coupled to a seven-speed automatic transmission. Would you dare to drive such a beast?
