Mysterious Jaguar XE test mule spied

While the video description says this is a prototype of a BMW 4-Series or M4, we could assume most likely it is a Jaguar XE mule, judging by the taillights and the rear window. The British company is rumored to be planning a range-topping SVR version of the sedan, so this could be the first time we are taking a look at the car.

According to previous reports, the machine will be equipped with a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 unit with up to to 489 bhp (364 kW). It will be mated to an 8-speed automatic gearbox with faster shifts than in the standard model. 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) acceleration will be performed in around four seconds, while top speed will be electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph).

Should be a popular vehicle but we won't be seeing it here in North America for quite some time. I mean the regular XE isn't supposed to get here until 2016, so the SVR version is going to be even further down the road from that.
It's about time we got to see a spotting like this! and still a good amount of camo on it...still some more phases for it to go through before we'll get a better look at it.
