Pagani Utopia and McLaren Artura Arrive in Real Racing 3


Pagani Utopia and McLaren Artura Arrive in Real Racing 3

Despite being over ten years old, Real Racing 3 is still one of the best racing games on mobile, and the updates aren’t slowing down. Real Racing 3’s first update of 2024 has arrived, and with it comes two sensational supercars to drive and a host of new events.

Pagani Utopia and McLaren Artura now available in Real Racing 3

Real Racing 3’s latest update lets you take two new blisteringly-fast supercars for a spin: the Pagani Utopia and the McLaren Artura.

A successor to the Huayra, at the Pagani Utopia's heart is a 6.0-litre twin-turbo V12 delivering a colossal 852 horsepower. With a seven-speed manual gearbox and no dual-clutch system, the Utopia is a hypercar in its purest form. With only 99 examples planned for production, the Utopia will be a rare sight on the road, but you can drive it in Real Racing 3.

This incredible hypercar can be won in the Visions of Utopia special event running until 20 January. Pagani’s third hypercar has featured in other mobile racers but has yet to appear in Gran Turismo or Forza.

Unlike the Utopia, electrical assistance enhances the McLaren Artura's performance. McLaren’s first hybrid supercar combines a 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged V6 and an electric motor to produce 671 hp, sent to the rear wheels through an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic.

0-60 mph in the Artura takes just 2.6 seconds, while top speed is a blistering 205 mph. McLaren’s athletic supercar can be won in the five-day McLaren Artura Track Day event starting on 21 January.

Alongside the new cars, the new update marks the start of round four, bringing new limited-time events, time trials, and prizes. For more details, check out the Real Racing 3 update 12.1 patch notes below.
