Jaguar F-Type Roadster spied with a new bonnet, possible four cylinder winter testing in extreme cold

We saw the Jaguar F-Type Roadster with the top down and a new bonnet in November testing in Southern Europe.

Here we have pictures of a similar prototype with the soft top in place testing in extreme cold near the Arctic Circle.

This is most likely a prototype testing a new entry-level engine, that is rumoured to be a 4-cylinder engine with around 240bhp.

The current engine range includes a 335bhp 3.0-litre V6 supercharged petrol engine in the base model, 375bhp from the same unit in the F-Type S, while the F-Type V8 S is powered by a 488bhp 5.0-litre V8 supercharged petrol engine.

There are no other changes as it is clearly too early for a facelift, though the new entry level model is expected to have minor exterior updates to distinguish it from the V6 and V8 models.
