Did you think that the most select aftermarket specialists only used the most radical supercars on the market as bases? Well, we are sorry to disappoint you, now you can see that you were a bit wrong thanks to the latest project of Carlex Design.
The preparer is based on a Ford Transit Custom and elevates your design to something we’ve never seen before. With an Ecoblue mechanic under the hood that we have not confirmed if it suffers any touch-ups, this Transit Custom is presented with an interesting aerodynamic package that, without a doubt, has nothing to envy to the preparations M-Sport.
Although this time they do not bring the commercial vehicle closer to the world of rallying, they do offer us a vision of what a Ford Transit Custom ST or RS in case of reaching production. Okay, it would not be very operational for daily work, but it would not leave us indifferent and it would have its audience. Of course, it is not cheap either, because the starting price is 6,495 euros in Germany.
Baptized as Custom X, this Transit includes among its novelties a more aggressive front bumper with a splitter and side slats, a custom grille with the centrally positioned preparer logo, wild side skirts, fender extensions and a newly made rear bumper with a prominent diffuser and dual tailpipes.
They finish the whole a roof-mounted spoiler and various details in red that contrast with the rest of the bodywork, which can be ordered in various colors. Of course, a new set of alloy wheels in 18-inch size Shod with Michelin Pilot Sport 4 tires in size 255/45 R18.
He suspension system has been lowered to offer a more sporty behavior. Inside, Carlex has given the Custom X a racing car image thanks to new bucket-style seats covered in leather and Alcantara. This upholstery is applied to other components combined with contrasting red stitching, as is the case with the new steering wheel.
Customers can further customize Transit Custom with various additional extras, such as Westphalian tow bar and tow bar cables, as well as with a false engine noise controlled by the mobile app that makes this van sound like it rigs a mighty V8 block to its guts, even if the engine has been kept unmodified.
