Real Racing 3 just got a pretty impressive bump to version 2.0, bringing with it 2 hot new cars to drive and a brand new, real-time multiplayer mode.

This remains alongside the new mode, which uses Game Center to power the show.
EA has pushed out another impressive update to its equally impressive iOS racer, Real Racing 3, that for the first time brings cars from Ferrari into the mix.

And, Real Racing 3 also now has a brand new Time Trial mode for you to give them both a run out in.
