• The updated Jaguar F-Pace SVR is spotted testing at the Nürburgring.

• The model is wearing full camouflage. 

• Reports suggest the newer model will have a tweaked front bumper section and a fresher headlight design.

There are certain cars I've driven that standout in my mind more than others, one of those is the Jaguar F-Pace SVR. Why? Because it's bloody loud. It'll quickly turn your neighbours red with rage when the 5.0-litre V8 supercharged engine starts up. 

It also has a variable valve active exhaust system that opens exhaust flaps for an even more thunderous noise. The SVR's exhaust is 6.6kg lighter than the standard F-Pace system.

It's a wild car with 405kW and 680Nm which sees it reach 100km/h from standstill in 4.3 seconds and onto a claimed 283km/h top speed. It's a genuinely phenomenal machine in the day and age where performance SUVs seem to have no limits. 

It needed intense stopping power and fitted with larger 395mm front and 396mm rear brake discs. The brake discs feature an advanced two-piece construction on the front and rear to reduce weight. 

And so for 2020, the British carmaker is preparing an updated SVR that was spotted testing Germany's famed Nürburgring. It's completely covered in camouflage as it laps the track at high speeds. 

According to reports, the SVR model will sport a tweaked lower front bumper and newly-designed headlights that are more in line with the Jaguar design philosophy.

The interior will benefit from several tech upgrades seen in recent Jaguar Land Rover models. 

What we can tell from the video is that the SVR is still as loud as the pre-facelift model. The engine hasn't been altered and produces over 400kW and close to 700Nm.   

The international reveal of the deafening SVR is unclear, but we're hoping to see it naked (sans camo) before the end of the year. For now, revel in the noise of that snarling V8 engine and its supercharger whine. 

The cvdzijden supercar video YouTube account said: "This time I have filmed the 2021 Jaguar F Pace SVR doing some laps on the Nurburgring. The 2021 Jaguar F-Pace has a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine that will produce 410kW and 502 pound-feet of torque! This video shows you some action and lovely V8 engine sounds! I hope you enjoy the video."
