Honda’s next-generation Civic Type R will come one step closer to its showroom debut next month, when a new concept previews in Geneva.

The new hot-hatch has been showcased officially in recent months during track testing, but only while wearing layers of black camouflage.

This new concept, teased with a dramatic illustration today, will offer a first official look at the new ‘CTR’ without a hint of disguise.

How close the concept’s styling will be to the final production model is unclear for now, although it is clear we can expect new bumpers and a giant rear wing integrated into the existing tail-light design.

The black-on-black test car revealed last year also wore bolt-on guard flares, but this illustration suggests we could see pumped guards incorporated into the sheet metal.

Honda has previously confirmed the the new Civic Type R will be powered by a 2.0 litre turbocharged engine, producing "in excess" of 206kW.

Those figures will make the new 'CTR' more powerful than Volkswagen's new Golf GTI and Ford's Focus ST, not to mention Renault's Megane RS.

It will match Opel's Astra OPC however, which also features a 206kW 2.0 litre turbo engine. Of course, the Astra range is no longer offered in Australia.
