The test model has recieved minor tweaks to the styling of its nose and was spotted lapping the 'Ring clad in a camouflage body wrap. Though initial reports suggested the car was running a V6 engine, DVLA records reveal the car is in fact using a 2.0-litre four-pot motor.
This petrol engine could either be based on the 237bhp one found in the 2.0-litre XE, or alternatively it could be Jaguar's upcoming 2.0-litre petrol Ingenium engine. Either way, insiders expect power output to reach as much as 300bhp.
The addition of a four-cylinder unit to the F-Type range has long been rumoured, and the arrival of this prototype suggests it's on course to arrive next year.
On the car's exterior, the front bumper lacks the air intakes that sit either side on the current V6 model, and instead makes do with slimmer gaps below the grille. This creates an overall cleaner, more aerodynamic look.
