Honda's new Civic Type R is creeping closer to a showroom debut, with new spy photos revealing a number of new details.

Spied at the Nurburgring this week, the new hot hatch was caught wearing new production parts, including a large rear wing, big wheels and a meaty brakes package.

There's also a sharp new front bumper, flared bolt-on guards to accommodate a wider track, and a set of fat pipes poking out of the rear bumper.

While still wearing a full layer of camouflage, it is clear Honda isn't playing 'silly buggers' with its new hot hatch.

And fans have a lot to look forward to with this new Type R. The previous model was no shrinking violet, but this new model is expected to be the hottest 'CTR' ever offered to the public.

Speaking with press in 2012, Honda boss Takanobu Ito was very clear on the new Civic Type R's mission: to be the "fastest front-wheel-drive vehicle on the Nurburgring race course".

To make good on this claim, it will have to knock off a lap of the venerable 'Ring in under 8:08 minutes. That's the mark set by the current record for a front-wheel-drive car - Renault's stove-hot Megane RS 265.

Honda has been less open about the Type R's powerplant, but with goals like that, we can likely expect a turbo mill to drive the new model.

Reports in recent months suggest turbocharged engines with either 1.6 or 2.0 litre displacements, and a "target" power figure of 225kW.

Other rumours suggest a hybrid powertrain - again benefiting from turbocharging - and even a twin-clutch automatic transmission.

For now, it remains unclear when Honda will offer a first official look at the new model, but with the Tokyo Motor Show on again this year, we could see a concept appear sooner rather than later.
