New viral site teases electric Audi R8 concept?

Audi R8 Electric Teaser

Almost a month ago from today, we heard a little rumor that Audi will be showing a new concept known as Audi R8 ePerformance, an electric-version of its popular supercar, at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show. We’re expecting that the concept, if shown, hints at a future production model that would compete with Mercedes-Benz’s SLS AMG with electric-drive.

With the Frankfurt Motor Show just days away, Audi has released a new viral campaign called “Electricity Untamed.” Each “weird” video ends with a little teaser of what looks to be an Audi R8.

We’d love to say that an electric Audi R8 is no longer a rumor – but we’ll have to proceed with caution.

You can check out the “weird” videos we’re talking about after the jump. Our favorite is Go Kart and Mower.
