The export version, the "Jaguar International" was marketed as a M1.6 aircraft but whether it ever achieved it in service, I've no idea. It did have a slightly more powerful engine and the intake was...

I see RA2335 dates from Nov 2014 so probably not a Shoreham response. Could it be a knee-jerk response to an impromptu Typhoon 'display' over RR Filton which was readily visible from Abbey Wood?
