The anticipated car reveal in Real Racing 3 has arrived.

Last week, the wildly popular racing game received an update that added new cars (the Italian-built Spadaconcept supercars Codatronca TS and Codatronca Barchetta) from a new manufacturer (Spada Vetture Sport), new events, and new gifts in celebration of the game's second anniversary this month.

In addition, the update teased the worldwide reveal of a new vehicle from a prestigious manufacturer.

And it's here: The renowned German automaker Porsche has revealed its latest car, the Cayman GT4, right within Real Racing 3.

Porsche says that it has designed the Cayman GT4 “not just to survive on the racetrack, but to blow it away”:

More downforce. More traction. More capacity. More thrust. More power. More than any Cayman has ever had before. That’s what makes it the Cayman GT4: the super GT with the distinctive mid-engine layout.

If you want to be among the first to get behind the wheel and drive the new Cayman GT4, or at least a virtual version of it, start the challenge specifically designed around the vehicle in Real Racing 3 now.

Real Racing 3 is available for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad on the App Store as a free-to-play title.

The game has been a hit among mobile racing enthusiasts not least because it features vehicles that are based on, per its name, real cars.

And now, Real Racing 3 has also become a platform for the grand unveiling of a real car. Apparently, the Porsche Cayman GT4 reveal in Real Racing 3 marks the first time a real car has been unveiled through a mobile game.

Real Racing 3 is developed by the Electronic Arts (EA) subsidiary Firemonkeys Studios, which is behind the mobile edition of Need for Speed: Most Wanted.

In November last year, EA announced that Firemonkeys had been developing another mobile installment in the Need for Speed series called Need for Speed: No Limits.

We'll see if that game will score EA and Firemonkeys another first in the mobile gaming industry.
