And the LFA that BMW didn't have? And the GT86 that BMW will have as FWD?

With its efforts at the Frankfurt Motor Show dedicated to hybrid technology, one of the key attractions of the Toyota stand will be the international debut of the Yaris Hybrid-R Concept an exercise in exploring how hybrids can deliver greater performance and driver enjoyment.
Visually, the Yaris Hybrid-R Concept is not that far off the production Yaris Hybrid model that was launched in 2012. Large alloy wheels and a roof spoiler have enhanced the sporty three-door profile, while a larger air dam flanked by big vents distinguishes the front end.
The Hybrid-R employs a 1,6-litre GRE (Global Race Engine), developed by Toyota Motorsports, that is supplemented by dual electric motors on the rear axle that essentially make the Hybrid-R an all-wheel-drive car.
The Hybrid-R also features elements used on the TS030 Hybrid racecar that scored Toyota a second overall at this years 24 Hours of Le Mans, like a super capacitor that stores energy recovered under braking and discharges that quickly too.
