This Merc is ready for the Water Wars!

Carlex Design, our favourite Polish friends, are back. And guess what - they're prepping for the water wars.

We love the Polish. Always have, always will, but we're not entirely convinced the X-Class ever needed six wheels and that there is the truth of it.

The Americans do it best, you see. Hennessey gave us the 6-wheeled VelociRaptor and the 6-wheeled Goliath and both make six wheels look pretty casual, if six wheels could ever look casual.

But the Mercedes-Benz X-Class is just not fat enough for six wheels and quite frankly it looks a little stupid, even if deep down we kind of like it and dream of a Witkoppen where these are everywhere.
