Arden Gives F-Type a Leaping Jaguar Hood Ornament

Sometimes, it’s better to leave tradition behind and look into the future, which is precisely what Jaguar and its team of designers did with the brand’s XF, XJ and F-Type models. However, if you insist on dwelling in the past, Arden has resurrected the leaping Jaguar hood ornament for the F-Type Coupe and Roadster sports cars. Available in chrome and if you’re more adventurous, in body color or gold-plated, the ornament starts from €329 (US$ 444.54 or £287.84 – including 19% tax/VAT). The German tuning firm also offers several other goodies for the F-Type series, including alloy wheels with or without spacers, a sports suspension kit, LED ambient lighting for the interior, and new software available for all engines that boosts output by 39hp (40PS) and peak torque by 50Nm, priced at €5,831 (US$7,878.85 or £5,101.54).
