With about a month left until the Frankfurt International Motor Show, Toyota teases us with a... badge.

Yes, for now it’s just a badge reading Hybrid R, from which we learn that it will bring Toyota’s racing hybrid technology on road vehicles in the near future.

"At the forthcoming 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, Toyota will present an exciting new concept that brings Toyota Hybrid System-Racing technology to the road (and track)," reads the Japanese firm's statement that accompanies the picture of the Hybrid R logo.

With no other details available, we can only think that it might be close related to the automaker’s Supra replacement jointly developed with BMW, which might be based on the Toyota FT-HS hybrid concept car revealed in 2007 and which you can see in the picture bellow.

Stay tuned to find out more details as soon as the automaker will reveal them.
