Elegance, discreet sportiness and understatement have always been characteristics of British cars. However German tuning house Arden hasn’t quite taken these into consideration while tuning Land Rover’s Range Rover, giving it an aggressive new look and the performance to match.

The Arden Range Rover AR7 puts out no less than 520hp from the supercharged V8 it houses thanks to an increase in capacity to 4.5L and a high-performance twin-screw charger. Together with 701Nm of torque the British powerhouse completes the 0-100km/h sprint in 6.5 seconds and is capable of reach speeds in excess of 240km/h. Helping the engine breathe better is a new stainless steel sport exhaust system specially made for the AR7, which is distinguished by a deep and burly sound as well as a unique tailpipe design.

Styling changes consist of a 6cm wider front apron, hand-made stainless steel grill and air vents, LED daytime running lights, pumped wheel guards, side skirts and a new rear apron. The final touch is a set of 22 or optional 23in wheels housing six-piston caliper brakes in the front and four-pot units in the back.
