The moon rover Audi lunar quattro celebrates its film debut in Ridley Scott’s sci-fi blockbuster “Alien: Covenant” which premieres worldwide this May. Audi experts have developed the Audi lunar quattro in cooperation with the German start-up “Part-Time Scientists”. It will soon embark on an actual mission to space.
Director Ridley Scott has integrated the Audi lunar quattro into “Alien: Covenant,“ a new chapter in his groundbreaking “Alien” franchise. The crew of the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world. When they uncover a threat beyond their imaginations, they must attempt a harrowing escape. In its film debut, the Audi lunar quattro is an integral part of the Covenant mission and is deployed to help Faris (Amy Seimetz) navigate and assess the challenging, unknown terrain of a new planet.
Incorporating the Audi lunar quattro into the film is part of the collaboration between Twentieth Century Fox and Audi. “The ‘Alien’ franchise is the best way for us to garner suitable attention for the moon rover developed by Audi, and to showcase Audi’s intelligent technologies in a visionary environment,” explains Giovanni Perosino, Vice President International Marketing Communication at Audi.
“Fox’s partnership with Audi on ‘Alien: Covenant’ is an opportunity to bring to the forefront the innovative work Audi is doing in exploration,” said Zachary Eller, Senior Vice President Marketing Partnerships at Twentieth Century Fox. “We’re happy to continue our long relationship with Audi that has allowed our filmmakers to incorporate authentic, leading-edge technology into their futuristic worlds.”
As part of the collaboration, a short film created by Twentieth Century Fox, 3AM and Audi was captured on one of the movie’s biggest sets. It shows the Audi lunar quattro patrolling the Terraforming Bay when it detects an unidentified lifeform and goes to investigate what lurks in the dark.

The Audi lunar quattro is preparing for an actual mission to the Moon. Since 2015, the premium manufacturer from Ingolstadt has worked with a team led by Robert Böhme, founder and CEO of “Part-Time Scientists”, on developing the rover. Audi experts have supported the Berlin-based start-up, in particular with Audi’s all-wheel drive expertise (quattro technology), expertise in lightweight construction, experience in developing vehicles with electric and plug-in hybrid motors (e-tron), and with design optimization.
By selecting the finest materials, the developers have managed to reduce the weight of the exploration vehicle to just 30 kilograms. The Audi lunar quattro is 85 percent aluminum, produced by the 3D metal printer at Audi’s headquarters in Ingolstadt. A pivoting solar panel supplies the rover with energy. On top of that, you have intelligent quattro drive technology and the efficient e-tron motor. The car manufacturer’s Mission to the Moon is nearing completion: In the very near future, we can expect to see the advanced Audi lunar quattro set its course for the Moon.

Wanna enjoy a good package deal from BETTER to drive a Audi?
It’s more cost efficient than a hire purchase
Attending the launch was Dr Haji Supry bin Haji Awang Ladi, Director of Land Transport who was the guest of honour.
So far the responses have been overwhelming since BETTER was introduced last November. Their numbers are expecting to increase with the current expo at The Mall and hopes the roadshow can educate potential consumers on the value they can get for renting their cars and also give them a new concept of “ownership” when it comes to BETTER.
Did you know that the BETTER app won the Silver winner award in Singapore Mobile Excellence Award for the Best Campaign and Direct Response and also in the informative use of mobile technology, outshining other banks in that category. Do download the popular app now in Brunei and they have already more than 30,000 downloads as of now. Amazing!!
Do drop by The Mall and check out BETTER Car Expo which will be until 7th May 2017.

This is the second time that Bang & Olufsen (Brunei) and Ergozones (Brunei) are having a roadshow at Pusat Insani, Seria. The first one was a huge hit and it’s no surprise for holding another similar roadshow to showcase their latest products.
If you are into audiophiles or/and a big fan of Bang & Olufsen, you will appreciate what they are bringing to you. The main attraction is definitely the Beocube which was constructed since Sunday. It’s basically a mocked up cube room, designed to bring the best sound from the awesome speakers from Bang & Olufsen and Malek Manan, Resident Audiophile for Bang & Olufsen (Brunei), guided the visiting guests and showcased what the B&O speakers are capable of and why the brand is the perfect choice for customers.
I was also impressed with the inner walls as they have a special padding to bring the best out of the speakers inside the Beocube. We were treated to a playlist of music and trailers and I began to appreciate the precision and the quality more than before. The firmware update(s) itself makes a difference for the listeners to enjoy at the optimum level.
There are three sections to the Flexible Living roadshow. Two sections are showcasing Bang & Olufsen products while the other is showcasing Ergozone products such as the newly launched SoFi Mesh chairs by HÅG.
Do look for Jack Chin who has many experience in demo-ing HÅG brands. I find the experience sitting on the SoFi Mesh pretty comforting and all. Yes, we do take for granted on how we sit and thinking that any chair will do the trick. HÅG enhances your sitting experience and you will appreciate more in a long run on how it can benefit you even when sitting down.
The Flexible Living roadshow final day will be tomorrow, Friday 21st April until 9pm. So what are you waiting for? And the admission is FREE at Pusat Insani, Seria. For updates, you can follow Bang & Olufsen (Brunei) Facebook and Ergozones (Brunei) Facebook.
So much to love about Bang & Olufsen speakers
Another speaker to look out for – Beoplay M5 with a true360 sound
