The considerably more hardcore version of Peugeot's RCZ coupe, the RCZ R, will make its production debut at next month's Goodwood Festival of Speed in the UK.

Revealed as a thinly veiled concept in September last year, the RCZ R offers more power and new hardware - and an Australian debut is set for early 2014.

In concept form, the RCZ R gets the same enhanced version of the Peugeot and BMW-developed 1.6 litre turbo petrol engine that drives Citroen's DS4 Racing, with a hefty 193kW of power on offer.

Thankfully, Peugeot has confirmed the production model will offer the same numbers, quashing suggestions the coupe would be dialled down to a (slightly) more tame 185kW.

Incidentally, those numbers also make the RCZ R the most powerful production model that Peugeot has ever offered.

The 193kW R will enter, of course, as the new halo model in the RCZ range - easily eclipsing the 147kW (in manual) of the regular models.

Full specifications for the production RCZ R have not been released, although the concept's Torsen limited-slip differential will feature.

Expect suspension tweaks to also feature, along with larger wheels and wider rubber.

Watch for more details to surface in the coming weeks.
