The new Jaguar F-Type isn’t keeping to what I’ve got in mind when thinking about classic British engineering and flowing, sensual bod-lines. I feel like looking at a modified Nissan 350 Z, and that’s not really a good thing. However, German tuning company Arden has decided this car is worth their time, so they’ve just previewed their tuning program for the Jaguar F-Type Coupe. Like it?
There’s still work to be done, but according to the tuning garage the new parts and pieces fit perfectly and allows the Jaguar to look stunning. At this time, visual updates are limited to a few metallic finishes and that shiny new set of Sportsline 21-inch alloys costing around 8,200 EUR ($10,820). But most importantly, the Leaper, Jaguar’s hood mascot, is back although it features a “Made in Germany” stamp.
With no further details available, we’ll just have to believe the people at Arden when they say that all 6- and 8-cylinder engines hiding under this Jaguar’s hood will features power upgrades. I will say, though, that with this kind of revived legends it’s all about the feel and the sound.
