The Arden Motor Co. Ltd., produced a light car powered by a 2 cylinder engine, either an 8hp air-cooled V-twin J.A.P. or of 10hp water-cooled vertical twin Alpha. In 1914 a 10hp 4 cylinder Alpha was offered, the extra power of which justified adding a 3-seater clover-leaf body to the 2-seater already available. The twins were dropped after 1914, and a new model for 1916 was an 11.9hp four of 1704cc. All Ardens had 3-speed gearboxes and shaft drive.
