The automotive atelier's latest work is designed specifically to blend into the woods.
Automotive atelier Carlex Design has put its sewing machines to use decking out the interior of this woodland-themed Toyota Tacoma pickup.
The interior is swathed in dark green and black leather upholstery which covers the seats, dashboard, center console, door panels, and even the pillar covers. The center sections of the seats and the front armrest have been embossed with a bespoke pattern, and a dark green headliner added. The standard front seats were junked in favor of a pair of Recaro Sportster CS buckets, and the airbag steering wheel made way for a deep dish race car item.
The exterior of the Tacoma has received attention from Extreme 4x4, too. The bodywork is coated in a unique shade of dark green, designed to blend into the background on the owner’s frequent trips out into the woods. Rally spec Rshox lift the suspension 2.7 inches (69 millimeters), and it rolls on 4Mad wheels wrapped in 35 inch Mickey Thompson mud and snow tires - the fender wells and bumpers had to be modified to accommodate them.
A 12,000 pound (5,500 kilograms) 4Mad winch is bolted to the front, along with skid plates and fender extensions. DBA brakes, a sports exhaust, and custom LED lighting bright enough to be seen from space finish the truck off.
The owner could, of course, have bought a brand new, fully loaded Ford F-150 or Chevrolet Silverado for the same kind of money they poured into their Tacoma - even getting the cost of shipping one across to Europe into account. But financial sense is not the point, is it? The owner spent all that money because he loves his Tacoma, and financial sense rarely has anything whatsoever to do with matters of the heart. Especially when it comes to cars.
