share to other networks share to twitter share to facebook

It’s been nine years since Real Racing 3 launched on mobiles. Since then, it’s set the standard for realistic mobile racing games.

Whereas the Asphalt games are all about over the top arcade racing with huge jumps, insane speeds, and spectacular crashes, Real Racing 3 features an assortment of licensed cars, real-world licensed cars, and challenging driving physics. Essentially, it's the next best thing to Forza Motorsport and Gran Turismo on mobiles.

To celebrate the free-to-play mobile racer’s ninth anniversary, Firemonkeys Studios and EA have released a substantial update, adding four new cars and an anniversary-themed event with special rewards to earn.

New cars

As part of update 10.2, two BMWs join Real Racing 3: the 2021 BMW M4 and its race car sibling, the 2022 BMW M4 GT3. Powering BMW’s new high-performance coupe is a 3.0-litre twin-turbo inline six-cylinder engine that produces up to 503 horsepower in the range-topping Competition model.

The BMW M4 is the grand prize in Real Racing 3 Round 6

You can obtain the BMW M4 road car in Real Racing 3 for free by earning VP in Round 6. The M3 GT3, on the other hand can be won as a reward car at the Rolex 24 Daytona special event running until 28 March.

Also joining Real Racing 3’s car roster is the all-new Porsche 911 GT3 and the Apollo Intensa Emozione hypercar. Costing 525 Gold, the track-focused 911 GT3 packs a 4.0-liter flat-six engine producing 502 hp, which is sent to the rear axle.

It can be won in the limited-time Porsche 911 GT3 (2021) Limited Series event that starts on 22 March and ends on 29 March.
