Real Racing 3 10-year anniversary update adds four new cars and a new track

For ten years, Real Racing 3 has remained one of the best mobile racing games. Launched back in February 2013, Real Racing 3 showed how realistic a racing game could be on mobile. With hundreds of licensed cars, realistic handling, and high-fidelity graphics, it's effectively the Gran Turismo and Forza Motorsport of mobile racing games.

Since then, regular updates adding new cars and features have kept Real Racing 3 ahead of the competition.

To celebrate its tenth anniversary, FireMonkeys is releasing a substantial update that adds four new cars, a new track to race them on, and an array of new events.

New cars

Available to download on 31 January, the Real Racing 3 10-year anniversary update adds the Nissan Nismo GT-R LM to the roster.

This one-off homologation special was built so that Nissan could enter the GT-R in the 1995 and 1996 24 Hours of Le Mans. You can earn it in the five-day Track Day: Nismo R33 event starting on 31 January.

A multitude of Mazdas have also arrived, with the original 1989 Mazda MX-5 (NA) and its newer 2020 sibling joining the roster. The original can be earned in the Miata Mastery Bonus Series event while the 2020 model can be won in the International Street Clash event.

The Jaguar Lightweight E-Type is also a bonus prize for completing Season 2 Round 4.

As a bonus gift, all Real Racing 3 players will receive a free Porsche Carrera S as part of the ten-year anniversary celebrations. You can also win the 2021 Porsche 911 GT3 with a commemorative livery by entering the Gold RR3 10th Birthday TTC event.

New Track

As well as new cars, Lime Rock Park also arrives in Real Racing 3. Located in Connecticut and home of the Skip Barber Racing School, the US circuit is coming to Real Racing 3 on 26 February.

There are also new 2022 Formula 1 Invitational races to tackle along with new Flashback, Limited Time, and Bonus Series events.
