Leonard Nimoy and Zachary Quinto Spock Audi ad

Star Trek stars Leonard Nimoy and Zachary Quinto, who have both portrayed the Vulcan Spock in the series and on film, star together in a new ad for Audi that's filled with nostalgic Trek references.

The two stars begin by playing chess against each other on tablets before betting on who can make it to the local country club first for lunch. Loser has to buy.

"Stand by to have your wallet emptied by a tractor beam," Nimoy says.

"Anything's possible," Quinto laughs, "but probably not that."

The two get into their cars -- Quinto eases into his Audi S7 while Nimoy struggles to get his clubs into his Mercedes, ultimately having to belt them into the front seat.

The ad features a classic reference to Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and Nimoy singing his 60s song "The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins.

Quinto reprises the role of Spock in Star Trek Into Darkness, which hits theaters May 17.
