Jaguar tests updated F-Type prototype coupe and convertibleJuly 1, 2019
Under the hood of the British novelties may be a hybrid V8 engine from BMW. Thanks to journalists, we have the very first look at the updated version of the iconic British cars.
Representatives of the British brand Jaguar have repeatedly said that the two-door sports coupe F-Type will always be part of the company’s lineup. Today we have evidence of these words – foreign journalists noticed a couple of disguised prototypes of the updated F-Type, which drove along the Nürburgring race track. It seems that this is not a complete replacement for the current car, which Jaguar mentioned earlier, because the familiar form of the F-Type is easily recognizable. Most likely, what we see here is a substantially revised version of the current model – the current generation coupe was introduced in 2013.
It is difficult to accurately determine the features of the updated appearance in the front of the car – because the prototype is covered with a thick camouflage film, but still we can see that the changes are quite serious – thin headlights with a slightly increased grille.
The final version of the model may look like a German sports car Audi R8, but with more rounded edges. Details along the sides are difficult to identify, although we suspect that the F-Type wing sculpture may still exist under the veneer. In the back of the car you can see the updated tail lights and small cosmetic changes. Obviously, the above changes apply to the version of the model in the coupe.
The motor range for the Updated F-Type is not yet known. Last year, we heard a rumor that the 4.4-liter V8, supplied by BMW, could replace the current 5.0-liter unit, inherited from Ford. It is also possible that a hybrid transmission may appear under the hood of the new F-Type.
