Arden, the German tuning firm that's been tweaking Jaguars for decades, is teasing us with this concept shot of its new Jaguar XF AJ 21. We just drove the 2009 Jaguar XF and felt the sheetmetal was lacking some excitement. In a good manner, it appears that Adren has addressed some of our concerns with its aerodynamic sport package including new front and rear bumpers, new side skirts, and a more aggressive wheel package. Look closely and you'll notice the cat is back on the hood (maybe too much redundancy, considering the badge is just below it as well?). Expect more photographs, specifications and pricing in the near future.

      Not redundant at all. My '98 XJR has the leaper on the hood and a growler on the grill.

      This kit does not help the XF. I like the XF well enough and the parts i don't care for, this does not address. The grill looks absolutley silly.

        correction: those wheels are far better than the stock.

      NO thanks, would rather wait for XFR than some poorly done body kit.

      FX could have been a car that would have saved Jaguar, now its just going to prolong its struggling by a few years.
        • 6 Years Ago
        The XF outsold all other Jaguar models combined in February.

        Do you really think a car that single handedly doubles their sales numbers is "just going to prolong its struggling by a few years?"
        • 6 Years Ago
        Given their poor lineup and dismal sales number any new model will increase their sales many-fold. If you sell 1 car a year, then selling 2 will not be such a great achievement, despite that it doubles your sales.

        Come on, for a mass-production company 1,000 cars is an incredibly bad performance. Doubling that is just adding another 1000 to the mix.

        Had they retained the original design, they would have attracted younger buyers. They decided to stay conservative and retain those 1000 95-year-olds. Smart? I don't know.

      Devastatingly messy.

      I'm sorry, but this is just a photo rendering of what they're planning to do. It really drives me up a wall when tuning companies release renderings of supposed products, but don't have the actual products to back it up.

      It actually looks a lot better that the production version. If only they could do something about these ugly headlights.
        • 6 Years Ago
        I second that

        those headlights just don't fit a Jag
        they're more liek VW or Hyundai, but definitely not Jag

        I stil think the concept front end should have been kept itact.

      just imagine, with the amount this probably cost you could get a custom shop to make it look like the concept

      Cheap looking wheels. The XF looks fine the way it is, however the XFR will be more aggressive looking.

      This car looks hilarious... Don't know if that's what they were going for.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Looks like an IS 250.

      rims are cg

      this one retains a lot of the concept cues which is the car they should of made in the first place..not the water down version...
