Not too long ago the internet was abuzz with chatter about Jaguar introducing a lower priced, four-cylinder F-Type.

That's not a huge surprise or leap of faith considering the company does have a robust four-pot engine that can be sourced from the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque, and it could lower the F's barrier of entry.

We've posted spy shots of the alleged car and now we're seeing the first video of it. BUT, something's not quite right.

Just listen to it.

Now the YouTube account that posted this clip states that this is the four-cylinder testing on track, but if you close your eyes and listen good, there's no way this is a four. It sounds too rich and has a note only a six could make. Also, the cracks and bangs on the overrun has it sounding quite like the already out V6 variant. I should know as I've driven it on an autocross.

So, what is Jaguar REALLY up to? Is it already working up a revamped F-Type convertible to push out to the market in preparation for the Mercedes-Benz GT AMG?

What say you, Spies?

**Check out the latest spy video of the Jaguar F-Type below!

In this video you can see an F-type being tested on the Nürburgring Nordschleife on the 11th of April 2014. It's wearing a F-type S jacket, but listen to that engine. It's clearly a smaller engine. Jaguar was also testing a V6 and V8 F-type on the Nordschleife the same day, which were much faster and had a much louder sound from both the intake and exhaust. What do you guys think this F-type is hiding under the hood?
