Rumours of a new turbo engine for Honda's next Civic Type R are heating up, and reports this week suggest the new model will be the hottest yet.

The 'T' word has been attached to talk of the new 'CTR' for a while, but according to Britain's Auto Express, a Honda head honcho has confirmed both a turbo, and a potential power figure.

Speaking with the paper this week, Honda R&D insider Yasuhisa Arai reportedly confirmed the new model will feature a turbocharged 2.0 litre petrol engine, producing as much as 300hp; around 225kW.

With those sorts of figures, the Civic Type R will move into the top tier of the hot hatch market, rivalling the Megane RS, the Focus ST and a host of others.

"We have an idea of the products our rivals are developing and regardless of what anyone else produces, our car will be the fastest front-wheel-drive model around the Nurburgring when it goes on sale,” Arai said, echoing recent comments from Honda boss Takanobu Ito.

"We will do whatever we need to in order to make that happen."

It has also been reported that the new CTR will get all-wheel-steering for increased speed in corners, along with a mechanical limited-slip differential.

The new Civic Type R is expected to hit showrooms sometime in 2015. Click here more reports on the new Civic Type R.
