Set your phasers on fun not stun to watch one of the best car ads of recent times.

Audi have lined up Star Trek's original Spock, Leonard Nimoy, in a head-to-head with the franchise's new Spock, Zachary Quinto to promote their new Audi S7.

The ad has gone viral with nearly 1.9 million views on YouTube inside three days.

The two Spocks take on each other in a number of one-upmanship challenges with the Audi (driven by the younger Spock) taking centre stage over a Mercedes, driven by Nimoy, who even finds time for a verse of The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins from The Hobbit.

The latest Star Trek movie, Into Darkness, is set to open in cinemas New Zealand's main centres tonight.
