The tuners at Arden think they’ve found some room for improvement, though. The German company recently announced a list of upgrades for the F-TYPE that cover both styling and performance.
Visual changes start added spats for the front spoiler, are color-coded (digitally rendered here) with other trim pieces for a nice bit of contrast. Aston Martin might accuse Arden of copying its grille “lipstick,” though. The hood ornament isn’t exactly tasteful, either.
Arden also equipped the F-TYPE with its own 21-inch alloy wheels, and lowered the suspension. While the car is now what the kids call “stanced,” the massive wheels and rubber-band tires may have an adverse effect on performance.

Speaking of performance, software tweaks have boosted output from the F-TYPE R Coupe’s 5.0-liter supercharged V8 from 550 horsepower and 502 pound-feet of torque to a supercar-challenging 582 hp and 538 lb-ft.
Or, Arden will fiddle with the supercharger and exhaust system and extract 150 hp and 110 pound-feet of torque over stock. Because who wouldn’t want a 700 hp Jaguar?
So far, Arden is offering these options a la carte, with the wheels costing around $11,900 a set, and the engine software tuning priced at approximately $8,464. U.S. availability hasn’t been discussed yet.
The supercharger and exhaust upgrade will start around $40,600, so it may be more efficient to just strap another car to your F-TYPE.
