Audi R8 ePerformance coming to Frankfurt, will rival SLS AMG eDrive

About two weeks ago, Mercedes-Benz confirmed that it is working on a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG with electric-drive, scheduled to debut in 2015. It is now reported (or rumored) that Audi will be showing a concept at this September’s 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show that will compete with the SLS AMG eDrive.

Known as the Audi R8 ePerformance, the electric version of the popular super car will carry electric motors and large batteries.

There are no official details on the technical specs of the R8 ePerformance so we’ll have to wait for Audi to make something official.
