If you can’t wait for the Jaguar F-Pace SVR to roll out, this could be the next best thing.
The current range-topping Jaguar F-Pace S is powered by a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 producing a respectable 380 hp, but if you’re looking for a more potent model you’re going to have to wait until the SVR variant makes its debut in New York next spring. Developed by Jaguar’s Special Vehicle Operations, the hardcore SUV is expected to produce over 575 hp. If you can’t wait until next year, there is now an alternative courtesy of renowned German company Arden Tuning who has given the F-Pace S a potent power upgrade.
The Arden AJ 25 package Jaguar F-Pace includes a raft of visual upgrades, as well as three power options for all three variants. The base 20d F-Pace gets a modest 35 hp upgrade, bringing the output up from 180 hp to 215 hp, while the 30d model gains an extra 40 hp, bringing the total output up from 300 to 340 hp. As for the range-topper, the S trim has been upgraded from 380 to 410 hp with the Arden AJ 25 package, making it faster than every F-Type below the SVR model. In addition, the tuning package gives the SUV a sportier appearance thanks to several aerodynamic enhancements include a new front spoiler, side skirts, rear diffuser, and a stainless steel exhaust with an Arden sport muffler.
There’s also a hand-crafted stainless steel grille with a custom radiator badge, and the upgraded SUV rides on 22-inch alloys wrapped in Continental tires. Ride height has also been lowered by two centimeters with sports suspension. Elsewhere, the cabin features a redesigned sports steering wheel upholstered with Alcantara along with personalized floor mats and aluminum pedals. Prices for the standard F-Pace start at $41,990 in the US, but Arden hasn’t said how much the tuning package will add to that.
