Honda has announced two brand-new concept cars will make their debuts at the Geneva Motorshow in March.

First up the Japanese manufacturer has released a teaser image of it’s brand new Civic Type-R concept, showcasing an aggressive looking rear spoiler.

The image, shown from the rear, shows the R will come with the huge wing, which is moulded into the rear lights. Below it are dual twin-tailpipes and a small diffuser.

Down the side big air vents allow hot air to escape brakes hidden behind giant black-and silver alloy wheels.

The Civic’s profile is given a bold stance with extra-wide wings over front and rear wheels and black side-skirts channeling the air around the rear.

It’s the first view we’ve had of the new R, which Honda say will go on sale in 2015.

Alongside the aggressive R, Honda also release an image of a more economical FCEV concept.

They say this is a cue to the design characteristics that will be seen in a new fuel-cell powered car to be released in Japan and the US next year.

Sleek white lines cover the rear wheels, in a style reminiscent of the Honda Insight, while above the FCEV is swathed in glass.

As well as the concepts Honda say they will reveal the powertrain of their NSX replacement and the new livery for their World Touring Car Championship team.
