I finally upgraded to Real Racing 3 version 2.1.0 – the “Aston Martin” update.
As the title suggests, this update represents the debut of a brand-new marque – the prestigious
British American name of Bond, James Bond Aston Martin. This version introduces double-oh-three new cars, namely the DB9, the Vanquish and the V12 Vantage S in ascending order of sexiness.
The new Astons feature in a new series, “Aston Martin Expedition”, which fits in half way up the tree between “Prestige Powermatch” and “Euro Supercar Duel”.
There is also another new series: “All Star Vendetta Series”, which is optional and may found tucked underneath the “Zenith Series”.
Other new changes in this version include Customization, Photo Mode, Gold Achievements.
The new cars feel unique. The acceleration is powerful enough to reach some serious speeds, but it is the brakes that really impress – they are absolutely legendary. Unlike the Porsche 911s, however, the Astons handled beautifully and predictably with complete control and plenty of warning that the car is about to lose grip, which makes for cars that are great fun to drive.
Stay tuned for the next upgrade — Open Wheelers.
