The Audi lunar quattro is ready for take-off, with the German company announcing its plans for the rover to complete its mission to the moon in late 2017.
Since the original announcement, the lunar quattro has shed eight kilograms in weight, and added Audi e-tron power to its repertoire.
Using four on-board cameras, the Audi lunar quattro will examine objects on the moon, while also taking three-dimensional and 360-degree images.
The Google Lunar XPRIZE competition is worth more than US$30 million ($40.1 million), and is a space travel competition aimed at engineers and entrepreneurs around the world.
In order to win the contest, a private team must get a rover to the moon, drive it at least 500m and send high-resolution images back to earth.
From an original field of nearly 30 entrants, Audi and the Part-Time Scientists are one of five leading teams in the race.
