The new Land Rover Range Rover was unveiled back in 2012 and since then, it has gained lots of attention from tuners. In fact, if you remember correctly, there has been about one new tuning kit offered each week.
This week, the tuning kit comes from the German tuner Arden and is simply called Spirit. Though Arden left the bits under the hood alone, it did work hard on updating the look of the SUV .
The new AR9 body kit includes a new front apron with two air entrances for improved ventilation. The tuner also installed an exclusive, handmade Arden front grille, a completely redesigned front appearance and new side skirts. For the rear, Arden installed a new apron and new sports silencers.
The car sits on a set of 22-inch wheels painted the same color as the SUV’s exterior. As an option, buyers can also opt for 22-inch monobloc Dakar II rims painted in black/silver matte or silver/grey matte.

Range Rover AR 9 Spirit by Arden in Detail
With the new wide-body kit, Arden wanted to update both the aggressive look of the Range Rover and give it a wider stance than it has factory. To achieve this look, it installed a front apron with grille set and LED Daytime lights, large air inlets, new side skirts and a new rear apron. The wheel arches are also considerably larger — a must if you want to fit those large wheels that Arden offers.
The price for the conversion is €28,381, including all taxes — about $37,500 at the current exchange rates. Customers can opt for individual parts and will pay as follows: €2,850 ($3,700) for the front apron with grille set and LED Daytime lights, €2,450 ($3,200) for the rear apron and up to €4,590 ($6,000) for the Arden Dakar II wheels.
The new ARDEN aerodynamic collection emphasizes the clear and modern design of the Range Rover LM.
With the extensions of the new AR9 body kit, the vehicle portrays a significantly advanced appearance. The front apron contains two air entrances for an improved ventilation of the air coolers. The air entrances are protected by the exclusive handmade Arden radiator grilles and complete the specific style of the AR 9. The front design is completely new designed and emphasizes the dynamic character of the Range Rover. The design of the AR 9 is focused on the vehicle’s aerodynamic, which is emphasized by the style of the front and rear fenders. The sidebars incorporate the front and rear design and create a smooth flow for the vehicle’s side body.
Moreover, the rear apron construction guarantees the functionality of the automatic trailer coupling, and the ARDEN rear sports silencer forces open the powerful soul of the Range Rover LM. The very popular ARDEN Sportline rims are also available in 10x22” inch for the new Range Rover and can be painted in the color of the vehicle’s exterior. Alternatively you can choose the monobloque Dakar II rims in 10x22” inch, which are available in black/silver matt or silver/grey matt. As an added option, you can also select your individualized signature or family badge for the ARDEN Dakar II rim.
