Mercedes-Benz X-Class Gets a Dark Military Look

Giancarlo Perlas September 14, 2020

Despite the three-pointed star brand’s decision to ax the Mercedes-Benz X-Class, tuners are still not giving up on it. Recently, Kahn Automobiles released a modified version of the auto with a dark military-inspired design.

Currently, Kahn Automobiles offers plenty of accessories for those who want to customize the appearance of the X-Class. However, this particular setup for the right-hand-drive variant of the X350d model is getting plenty of attention because of its very sinister aura.

The whole upgrade costs £63,999 or $84,552 based on prevailing exchange rates. It features a tubular metal brush bar and front grille with vertical slats similar to the design of AMG vehicles. The pickup possesses a set of five twin-spoke wheels with vented rims too.

Furthermore, the exterior comes in 3D texture black military paint with a satin finish. Except for the three-pointed star logo at the door of the pickup bed, everything including the chrome highlights of the vehicle is painted black. Kahn Automobiles also offers an optional bullet-resistant glass for the auto.

Meanwhile, the interior receives a quilted high-quality leather in black with red accents and diamond stitching. The company offers added customization options for the cabin of the X-Class upon request of the customer.

The upgrades are merely limited to the aesthetics of the Mercedes-Benz X-Class. Thus, its 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 diesel engine remains untouched. As a recap, the unit produces 255 hp and 406 lb-ft of torque. All that power is distributed via a seven-speed automatic transmission.
