Arden extracts more power and torque and adds some cosmetic touches to new XKR
10 August 2009

The Jaguar XKR Convertible has been tweaked by German tuner Arden.

The 2010 model XKR Convertible gains 29bhp and 37lb ft of torque, meaning a total output of 532bhp and 498lb ft of torque.

In addition, the speed limiter has been removed (but no top speed is quoted) and a sport suspension kit with stiffer shock absorbers has been fitted.

Other changes are cosmetic: the front grille and air intakes have been replaced with handmade, chrome-plated stainless steel grilles, and there's a new rear diffuser that houses the new sport exhaust system. The car also runs on 21-inch Sportline alloys.

No prices have been released.
