Polish automotive tuning shop Carlex has made a name for itself by carving out a rather unique niche: yachting-inspired designs.
In the spring of 2020, the company’s first voyage into the nautical concerned a Mercedes-AMG G63. With the compass rose as motif, and with hardwood added to suggest decking and the look of decking adorning the headliner, the tricked-out G-Wagen engendered such a response that Carlex gave a Merc X-Class a similar treatment that summer, followed by a Land Rover Defender.
Most recent to receive Carlex’s fluid treatment is another Brit: a Rolls Cullinan. But it’s a more subtle job. The tuning company’s unique hand-applied silver finish — mercurial, which is to say watery — is brought to bear once again on the exterior, while the yacht-suggestive design elements inside include brown and white leather, and deck-like wood floors. And, of course, the compass rose, here embossed into the console leather.
Carlex’s website states that pricing is available upon request. As for the Steampunk Edition Cullinan and the Royal Edition Cullinan currently in the works…check back with us. They should be revealed soon.
