Jaguar F-type Coupe tuned by Arden

Tuning specialist Arden has given its own twist on the F-type Coupe, with various styling upgrades, and an uprated supercharger kit. Details here

German tuner Arden has bravely decided to offer modifications for the Jaguar F-Type, a car widely acknowledged as one of the prettiest coupes on sale. Having specialised in customising Jaguars since the 70s, Arden has a large amount of experience in working on the Coventry carmaker’s vehicles.

One of the most striking modifications is the option of a leaping cat for the bonnet, something not seen on factory European Jags for decades. Other modifications include front and rear spoilers, aluminium grilles and contrasting trim on the rear diffuser.

The display car is also sporting Arden’s own 21-inch alloy wheels (costing just short of £4900), sitting at a wider track thanks to 30mm wheel spacers and lowered suspension, squatting the car 25-30mm closer to the ground.

Customers can also get a set of Arden badges for the boot lid, as well as a custom leather dashboard, two-tone seats, aluminium pedals, new floor mats, carbon accents and brushed aluminium or wood trim for the interior.

Arden offers a power hike to go with the external mods, remapping the ECU to add around 40bhp and 35lb ft of torque to the entire range of F-Type engines. That’d push the total output of the fastest 5-litre V8 F-Type R to around 582bhp and 536lb ft of torque, no doubt reducing the standard 0-60 time of 4.0secs.

For those wanting even more power, Arden will add more boost to your F-Type with an uprated screw supercharger kit. Power can be increased by around 148bhp and 110lb ft of torque, although the tuner hasn’t confirmed if this is available on all engines. If it was, that’d see the R’s power increase to 690bhp, bringing the fast coupe into line with the Lamborghini Aventador.

These mods don’t come cheap however, with the remap costing £4500 and that supercharger kit an eye watering £22,000. Even the bonnet cat costs £218 and the leather dash commands around £2500. The prices might be as premium as the badge, but what you will have is added exclusivity for a car that has sold remarkably well across Europe. And if you opt for the suspension and supercharger, it could swap the sports car tag for full blown supercar too.
