A keen angler recently went to Polish tuner Carlex Design (the same folks who did that steampunk Mini Countryman a while back) for a revamp of his Volkswagen Multivan. What resulted is perhaps the most striking – yet fishing-unfriendly – interior we’ve ever seen in a van. Below the shoulder line, if a surface isn’t covered in cross-stitched Alcantara, then it’s covered in cross-stitched leather. Even the steering wheel airbag boss. And the seat supports. And the cupholders.
The brown hue of the Multivan’s interior is called Criollo, named for an especially fine specimen of cocoa. The finishing touch on the overhaul is a fileting knife that Carlex made for the owner. We imagine he’ll use the knife for the marine life, but keep his van far away from it.
