App Review: Real Racing 3 With BMW Generations Challenge Content

In recent months, an app that has received a fair bit of usage through my limited free time is Real Racing 3. An amusing race game experience for a tablet or smartphone, the game has provided some wonderfully rendered digital representations of popular race tracks and automobiles. The list of race cars available on the app currently amounts to 146 spanning the gamut of classes and categories.

Real Racing 3's gaming action is also an ever-expanding virtual world. During Daytona Speedweeks, an expanded collection of NASCAR experiences were added to the game. Real Racing 3 also provides a frequent assortment of limited-time challenges allowing users of opportunity to win game currency and even vehicles by accomplishing races on a scale. For April, a Generations Challenge had added a pair of BMWs to the Real Racing 3 platform.

Representing an era where car manufacturers competed in auto racing with specially-prepped, limited-production factory vehicles, the BMW 3.0 CSL have now been added as a new playable vehicle on Real Racing 3. The real-life version of the BMW 3.0 CSL debuted on the race track in 1972 as a lightweight version of the previous 3.0 CS. The race cars were able to boast weight-savings thanks to thinner sheetmetal body shell and the use of aluminum for door, hood and trunk panels. Removal of trim pieces and other components deemed non-essential for racing was also employed on the BMW 3.0 CSL. The 3.0 CSL's aerodynamic bodywork resulted in the vehicle being called "the Batmobile".

The reign of the this vehicle was iconic for BMW. During its competitive racing years, the BMW 3.0 CSL would be driven to divisional European Touring Car Championships in six seasons from 1973 to 1979. Two Le Mans class victories and a 1975 IMSA GT Championship were also attributed to the vehicle before it was retired.

Needing only a tablet, Real Racing 3 will introduce many of us to the beauty of the BMW 3.0 CSL. I recommend that you complete the Generation Challenge. With a minimal expense of in-game currency, the classic BMW 3.0 CSL is practically gifted to you in the first two levels of competition.

Joining the BMW 3.0 CSL in the Real Racing 3 game is a digital recreation of the modern recreation of the 1970s car. Talking about the BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage R, the concept car was introduced in 2015 as a celebration to BMW's 40th anniversary of officially operating in North America. Heavily based on the original race car, you can notice the resemblance with the large rear spoiler. The BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage R uses 21st century engineering to revisit the lightweight construction measures. This time, a carbon fiber roll cage is integrated into the vehicle. Other details of the BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage R includes laser lighting, 21-inch alloy wheels and a minimalist interior.

Unlike the 1970s version of the vehicle, winning the BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage R is a trickier undertaking. I'm currently trapped within the third level due to expensive in-game currency needed to upgrade the vehicle to win upcoming stages. Time and time again, this becomes the real problem with Real Racing 3. Sometimes, the upgrade or the cars are simply too costly. Of course, like almost every free game app, Real Racing 3 offers the opportunity to in-game credits with real money. So, as I'm writing this review, the 3.0 CSL Hommage R untouchable for me.

Although the distinctive design of the Fiat 500 can still attract admiring stares, the brand has amounted to a very tiny share of the market with the 500x crossover being the only product available in recent years.
