The new Jaguar F-Pace SVR has been spied testing outside the Nurburgring, where the hot crossover will be put through its paces.

At the front, the Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) tuned SUV has a revised front fascia with a new grille and porous covers hiding enlarged air intakes. There's also a bunch of tape on the bonnet, beneath which hides a pair of vents.

Along the sides, tape and another piece of breathable camouflage seemingly serve to hide an enlarged set of side vents. The new F-Pace should also be fitted with new alloy wheels, lowered suspension, wide road-going tyres, and an upgraded braking package.

At the rear, the four large exhaust tips flank a diffuser-style element at the bottom of the rear bumper.

Under the bonnet, we expect to see a version of Jaguar Land Rover's 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine. Although we don't know how much power and torque this crossover will pack, the F-Type SVR has 423kW of power and 700Nm of torque to its name.

Like the lithe two-door, the F-Pace SVR will likely pair its high performance engine with an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive.

Launch timing for the hot new Jaguar SUV is uncertain, although if the company wants to gain maximum exposure for the car, a second-tier motor show, like New York, would a good bet.
