Arden AR 11 Takes One Last Stab At The Range Rover Evoque Before It’s Replaced

Arden has made a name for itself modifying and customizing Jaguars and Land Rovers. And for its latest project, it’s taken on the Range Rover Evoque.

Dubbed the AR 11, Arden’s take on the smallest Range Rover adopts a full aero kit, upgraded engine, fresh exhaust system, new wheels, and a refitted interior.

The body kit includes a new front spoiler, rear-bumper inserts, and side sills. Inside, Arden has fitted the little luxury SUV with aluminum pedals and a fresh set of floor mats. The engine, though unspecified, is said to have been upgraded by an extra 35 horsepower. (The example pictured is an HSE Si4 with the 2.0-liter turbo four rated standard at 240 metric horsepower.)

The quadruple stainless-steel exhaust pipes are designed to help it breath easier and sound better. And it all rides on a suspension dropped by an inch and a half, and fitted to a set of 22-inch alloys.

Though showcased on an Evoque convertible, the components are equally applicable to the three- and five-door versions with their rakishly fixed roofs.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen Arden apply its talents to the Evoque – but it may be the last before it’s replaced. Land Rover has a new model in store to replace the one that’s been on the market now since 2011 – longer than anything else Land Rover makes, and second only to the Jaguar XJ under the group’s umbrella.

The upcoming next-generation Evoque is expected to borrow much stylistically from the larger Velar, bringing with it all manner of modernized equipment. And we don’t doubt for a second that aftermarket outfitters like Arden will be quick to offer their own enhancements once it’s out.

          I’m talking about the Evoque in general, not nessecarily the convertible. Although I don’t hate the convertible.
