Those of you shopping for a completely autonomous Touareg that can make your morning commute while you're asleep at the wheel are going to be disappointed. Team Buffalo's entry in the 2005 DARPA Grand Challenge, which was posted on eBay Motors a few days ago, is based on a 2005 Yamaha 350 Bruin ATV.

The bidding started at $.99 cents and is up to $2,500 on the bidding of 12 interested parties, though the reserve has not been met. On Team Buffalo's website the group expressed regret that its entry did not make it to the finals and that the auction is an effort to hopefully recoup at least some of the project's cost.
