No matter what Jaguar F-Type you buy, it could be a V6 or a V8, your ears will be treated to a jolly nice time. However, it’s looking like a less tuneful version of Jaguar’s pretty coupe and cabriolet combo might be on the way: a diesel.
Oh yes: alongside the long-rumoured new entry-level 2.0-litre four-pot Igenium petrol F-Types, it seems Jaguar is also about to introduce the 2.0-litre diesel version from the engine family to the sports car. Spy shots from our photographers captured an oil-burning F-Type test mule with JLR engineering big cheese Mike Cross behind the wheel, and after running the plates on the DVLA database, the publication found that the car is registered as having a 2.0-litre diesel engine.
This could of course amount to nothing - plenty of cars never make it past the testing stage, after all. But if this did happen, what would you think of such a vehicle? Does the idea of a diesel F-Type disgust you, or is the prospect of a torquey little diesel Jaguar roadster/coupe weirdly appealing? Let us know in the comments.
