Jaguar F-Type Coupe spied testing at Nurburgring

The highly anticipated Coupe version of Jaguar's F-Type sports car has been filmed undergoing track testing at the Nurburgring Nordschleife.

Spotted pulling in for fuel just outside the track, the development prototype was clad in the eye-bending black and white camouflage paint that has been adopted by manufacturers in recent year to thwart the lenses of spy photographers.

It wears the same steeply raked roof as previously seen on Jaguar's C-X16 concept car, which gives the F-Type a newly squat rear stance and will broaden the car's appeal to those put off by the soft-roof of the currently available convertible version.

The engine line-up will remain unchanged from the roadster with a choice of two supercharged 3.0-litre V6 engines with 335bhp and 375bhp, and a supercharged 5.0-litre V8 with 488bhp – a staggering amount in a car as compact as this.

Rumour has it that Jaguar is also developing a new entry-level version, which could be powered by a turbocharged 2.0-litre motor, which would develop around 240bhp.
