Carlex's Mercedes AMG GLE 63 Has So Much Caramel You Can Taste It

Tuning / 5 Comments

One of the most tastefully modified interiors we've ever seen.

Most major tuners have carved out a niche for themselves - an area of expertise that they've become closely associated with. For Hennessey, that's pushing the limits of how much power can be reasonably extracted from already fast cars, as in the case of the new Chevy Camaro ZL1 Exorcist. For Carlex Design, the focus is on creating beautifully detailed and luxurious cabins. This is a tuner that's not shy to take a Rolls-Royce Cullinan's magnificent innards and say, "we can do better than that." Carlex's latest reveal is an even more lavish interpretation of the Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S Coupe.

In case you forgot, this brute of an SUV packs a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 with 603 horsepower and 627 lb-ft of torque. It's hardly short of luxury in stock form, either, with standard Nappa leather upholstery with gorgeous trim options like Grey Linden wood or AMG carbon fiber. Carlex has equipped its GLE 63 S with caramel-tinted leather upholstery featuring grey inserts, perforation, and embroidered motifs. Almost everything, from the door panels to the dashboard, is covered in this lovely upholstery. Special floor mats with leather trimming and metal emblems have replaced the stock mats.

We appreciate that Carlex has applied its logo tastefully around the interior. It's not too big or too garish, fitting in perfectly with the classy environment. For the trim inserts, carbon fiber has been used in this application. Outside, it's pretty much stock AMG fare and that's no bad thing. The large Panamericana grille, black 22-inch AMG wheels (a $2,000 option from Mercedes), and this particular Satin Grey paint give the 63 a sinister appearance that's almost at odds with the mature interior. Carlex did not indicate a price for this opulent cabin makeover but it's unlikely to be too much of an imposition for those who can spend $116,000 on an SUV.
