The Daytona 500

Fresh faces guide Real Racing 3's return to the DAYTONA 500. Partnering in-game with renowned NASCAR driver, Danica Patrick, racers will get to experience an intimate look at the road to the thrilling event. To accompany the event, Real Racing 3 will be on-site at Daytona International Speedway creating a series of exclusive videos to feature both in-game and on our social media channels. Racing legend Dario Franchitti will be with us at the DAYTONA 500 to lend his expertise and charisma in what will be a jam-packed weekend of excitement! The 2017 Ford Fusion race car will be earnable in-game during the DAYTONA: The Great American Race special event, starting February 21 (AEDT). The 2017 Chevrolet SS race car will be earnable in-game during the Maplethorpe Jimmie Johnson Championship limited-time series starting March 26 (AEDT).

2016 Lamborghini Centenario

Built to celebrate Ferruccio Lamborghini's 100th birthday, the 2016 Lamborghini Centenario is the supercar worthy of a centennial tribute. The bull leaps from 0-100 in 2.7 seconds and outputs 770hp thanks to a tuned 6.5-liter V12 engine. Not to sit idly on 53 years of engineering, the Centenario debuts the new Lamborghini rear-wheel steering system to improve agility and steering. Of course, only 40 of these tributes were produced and sold to the most committed devotees, so good luck driving one in real life. The 2016 Lamborghini Centenario will be earnable in-game during the Lamborghini's Legacy special event, starting March 12 (AEDT).

1995 McLaren F1 GTR

It's hard to imagine that on top of extensive bodywork changes, the 1995 McLaren F1 GTR actually had to be restricted to 600hp in order to compete in the '95 24 Hours of Le Mans. Reduced weight, and aerodynamic adjustments helped compensate for the neutering, leading to a faster, nimbler supercar that would lead McLaren to a historic victory in France. What was once a road-first supercar, became an on-track legend - a testament to the British manufacturer's engineering prowess. The 1995 McLaren F1 GTR will be earnable for in-game during the Flag Racing F1 GTR Championship starting March 5 (AEDT).

It's a smorgasbord of global entertainment with even more to come this update, so pack your bags because there's a heck of a lot of international racing to do!
