KAHN X-CLASS

This isn't your average truck.

If you’re not familiar, Kahn is a United Kingdom-based Automotive fashion house that’s been modifying vehicles in their own unique style for over 20 years. They’ve recently turned their attention the Mercedes X-Class pickup truck with some stunning results. 

When automotive design house introduces a body kit on to a production car the results can vary wildly. In this particular case, Kahn nailed their rendition of the Mercedes X-Class. 

There’s no extra horsepower or wild lift kit, instead, Kahn focused on refining the exterior body panels and interior trim. For starters, all exterior chrome was removed and replaced with a more elegant black trim. 

To further distinguish Kahn’s X-Class from a stock version there’s a completely new front bumper. This vented bumper adds aggression lacking from the stock car and matches well with a new grill which is reminiscent of the AMG GT. Kahn also added larger vented wing flares which go a very long way in changing the style of the X-Class. 

More special X-Classes:

To finish off the exterior look Kahn added a set of massive 22-inch wheels which are available in a silver trim or all-black depending on customer preference. This new exterior treatment certainly adds presence to the X-Class while still looking cohesive. 

Moving on to the interior Kahn completely reupholstered the front and rear seats in contrasting quilted leather. These red-accented seats are a massive departure from the factory seats and add a custom look while retaining OEM like quality. The door cards, dashboard, and shifter knob all receive similar leather trimmings to keep the interior cohesive. 

Kahn will sell you this exact X-Class trim in both diesel or petrol versions for £24,000 over the truck’s base price from Mercedes. Kahn is currently selling a completed version with the petrol V6 for only £54,999.00.
