Jaguar have been seen testing a brand new updated version of their F Type model around the famous Nurburgring and the car is looking to give out more power than any other F Type that has come before. The new model was seen wearing a body shell disguise which could point towards to some new exterior bodywork changes for the model.

We are very excited for the reveal of the upgraded F Type but no signs point towards a reveal anytime soon. More on this developing story as and when we have it.
