German automobile manufacturer Porsche has become the first car maker to reveal a premium vehicle in a video game.
As reported by AppAdvice, an update to Electronic Arts’ Real Racing 3 contains the worldwide reveal of the Porsche Cayman GT4, a sports car with the distinctive mid-engine layout, marking the first time a real car has been unveiled through a mobile game.
Offering more downforce, traction, capacity, thrust and power than any Cayman has ever had before, the new Cayman GT4 is now available in the latest Real Racing 3 update.
“Be the first to take the wheel of Porsche’s latest marvel, the Cayman GT4,” EA teases. “Start the challenge now, only in Real Racing 3.” The game contains specific challenges designed around the new car.
In addition to the Cayman GT4, Real Racing 3 has been refreshed with other new vehicles as well. As a bonus, you’ll also enjoy more than a hundred new events and new gifts in celebration of the game’s second anniversary this month.
The newly added vehicles include the Spadaconcept supercars Codatronca TS and Codatronca Barchetta from Italian manufacturer Spada Vetture Sport.
The massive 1.47-gigabyte download is provided on a freemium basis with In-App Purchases and requires an iPhone, iPod touch or iPad with iOS 6.0 or later.
