South Africa behold! Our new best friends are Polish.

Carlex Design, a Poland-based set of mad men and a woman, have created the X-Class off-road! Nice. But that’s not all bro…

Check this out: Poland is our new favourite European friend. Yes, we love Poland. Why? We couldn’t tell you before today but now we can bro.

Yes, Carlex Design, a creative place born from the freezing vodka shots of a town called Czechowice – Dziedzice (yes, we can’t pronounce it either), has produced something to warm all of our South African hearts. A Mercedes-Benz X-Class on steroids that they call the Off-Road - and we call outrageous!

We absolutely love it, all 1000 of them that will be built, and wonder with a warm sense of intrigue whether we, here in Africa, will ever get to see one. Because, be assured, it will be lapped up by every bakkie-loving Meneer from Pretoria to Paarl, via Kimberley.

But wait, there’s more – check out the Mercedes-Benz X-Class EXY (like EXY my Sexy?), which is an urban-hot version of the same thing, with ghey-like tyres and an attitude out of Edenvale. It too, be assured, will be lapped by every bro from Midrand to Mondeor, via Vilakazi.

Disappointingly though, there seem to be no upgrades on the engine front. But, we’re used to that now, aren’t we Ranger Raptor? Who needs the go when you’ve got the show?

We do Poland. We do! Don’t ruin a perfectly good friendship…
