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.

      Does it come with a sick bag?

      I don\'t know where this is coming from but I get the impression that Carlex Design is somehow \"more than leather\". Anyone else get that?

      Tastefully luxurious.

      I'd like to know what the outside looks like. If they went bananas with the coverings inside chances are the VW van has a phantom top outside to compliment.

      This puke colored interior is a nice match for Volkswagen cars. They should bring it to more models.

      What is up with wrapping every darn surface, including those you never touch, in leather and suede? Seems out of control and kinda tacky to me.

      Anyone with this kind of money for a fishing van, is probably not afraid to use it for fishing.

      That is actually tastefully done. I would not mind being in that cabin if it didn't belong to a van (just a matter of personal preference).
