The first video footage of Apple’s self-driving car has already surfaced on the internet, just over a month after the company first received permission to drive on public roads.

Apple’s self-driving car is actually a Lexus RX450h outfitted with sensors powered by Apple’s own autonomous driving software. Video of the car in action reveals Apple’s project is already highway-worthy as the company races to catch up to its competition.

Watch it cruise the road with ease:

The short video was filmed by an eagle-eyed Apple fan in Palo Alto. Apple is currently registered to drive three self-driving cars with six dedicated drivers, all of whom are way smarter than your average Uber driver.

Footage of the Apple car was published last month, but this is the first time we’ve actually seen the car moving down the street. Rather than developing its own car, Apple’s auto project is reportedly focused on creating the software platform for autonomous vehicles.
