Land Rover Range Rover AR 9 Spirit V8 Supercharged by Arden

In 1972 Jochen Arden laid the foundation stone for the present company Arden and in the following decades it became synonymous with elegant design paired with the most modern technology in the English luxury car segment. The company is dedicated to upgrading Jaguar, Range Rover, Bentley and MINI cars, being a true British company. The latest of their projects is a supercharged Range Rover.


The Range Rover got the tuner’s AR 9 Spirit wide body kit which includes illuminated sidebars. The SUV is also equipped with an electronic lowering module and rides on a set of large 22-inch Dakar II alloy wheels. Arden has placed a high-performance exhaust system featuring flap control on the vehicle and they also refreshed the front and rear fenders. Although there are not any pictures with the inside of the vehicle, the tuner announced that it features a black leather upholstery with bright stitching while the front and rear side carpets were replaced with leather decorative stitching. There's also an aluminum pedal set and suede carpets featuring leather piping. So we might say elegance defines their SUV.


The Range Rover program doesn’t include upgrading the engine. However, on request the Arden team can increase figures of the supercharged V8 5.0-liter engine by 138 PS (101 kW) and 120 Nm (88 lb-ft) and also get the top speed to 161 mph (261 km/h). Arden set the price for the vehicle at 159,900 EUR and their model has covered only 1,900 miles (3,057 km) so it’s a bargain for the Range Rover lovers.
