Audi has launched a new 'Electricity Untamed' microsite, which refuels rumors of a possible R8 ePerformance Concept.

The site, ElectricityUntamed.com, boasts several viral videos as well as a countdown to the Frankfurt Motor Show. This likely means Audi will introduce some kind of electric vehicle (or hybrid) at the show, and all indications point to the long rumored R8 EV as hinted by the attached image.

As we have previously reported, the R8 ePerformance Concept is expected to be an electric vehicle which is powered by a massive lithium-ion battery and a series of electric motors. While Audi has vehemently denied its existence, the original rumors suggested the car would debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

If the R8 EV does exist, and is planned for production, it would square off against the Mercedes SLS AMG eDrive. As Mercedes has already confirmed, the SLS AMG eDrive features four electric motors with a combined output of 392 kW (526 hp) and 880 Nm (649 lb-ft) of torque.
