Arden Jaguar's

Postby RoyvdStad » Wed Jan 04, 2012 11:07 am

Hi Guys,

As you now, I live in the small village of Mehr (D), in my village is Burg Zelem wat is owned by Jochen Arden who started in the 70ties the company ARDEN Automobile.

I am a big fan of the Arden tuned cars, so I would like to post some pictures of the tuned Arden Jag's and the small Jaguar Castle here in Mehr.

Enjoy:

Really interesting pictures, I love those last couple especially. The all black look always appeals plus I really like those deep-dish lattice wheels, they look like 17's. I'll have to hunt for a set to hang off mine.

I have a few press pics and stuff from the press packs and original brochures of the time when Arden was introduced to the UK, will try and remember to get them scanned in.

My God, an Arden Lynx Eventer! :shock:

There is a member of the forum from France who owns an XJR with Arden twin headlights, it is the only one I have seen outside a brochure.

I have a few Arden photos buried in my computer, but I doubt any of them will be new to you if you collect them. I will have a look for them.

Fascinating stuff. That Eventer is a right honey!

Is Burg Zelem moonlighting as a branch of HSBC?
