Arden Jaguar XF AJ 21

The Jaguar XF has certainly become the flagship of the British manufacturer's brand, so it was only a matter of time before the Jag-specialists at Arden got down and dirty to enhance the sporty sedan giving those power obsessed Jaguar enthusiasts a little something before the high-spec XF-R arrives this summer.

Highlights of the Jaguar XF AJ 21 are certainly found under the bonnet with power upgrades for each of the four engines, the top of the line Supercharged 416hp 4.2 liter V8 engine gets a displacement increase to 4.5 liters raising the power output to over 500hp.

The exterior has received the typical Arden treatment with extensive aerodynamic modifications. The AJ 21 gets a new front apron with a larger grille and larger air intakes contributing towards better cooling for the the engine and brakes, the lower front spoiler helps enhance the aerodynamic performance of the model, particularly at high speeds. The integrated LED-day lights help pimp the overall look of the vehicle.

As we head to the rear, notice the small openings on the rocker panels just in front of the rear wheels, this is an additional air intake added by Arden to help cool the rear brakes. The rear itself receives a few subtle changes including a new rear lid spoiler and a marked rear diffuser. The package is completed with a set of 21" wheels in Arden “Sportline” design, a special developed Arden sport suspension and a stainless steel sports silencer system.
