VW_RRGTI_MainMenuVolkswagen and Firemint's Real Racing GTI free promotional game for the iPhone has been released to the App Store. The 59.3MB download offers a Volkswagen branded racing experience with one main track and six 2010 GTI sport hatches.

The free Real Racing GTI App is available worldwide and spares no detail, allowing players to experience every thrilling aspect of the all-new 2010 GTI right in the palms of their hands on iPhone and iPod touch. From the redesigned exterior with more aggressive headlights and the famous red-striped grille, to the sporty interior with a race-inspired steering wheel, the all-new 2010 GTI races its way to life on the screen for a thrilling gaming experience.

The three game modes include Quick Race, Time Trial, and GTI Cup Championship (across three tracks). Aside from being a great ad for Volkswagen, Real Racing GTI also serves as the Lite version of Firemint's widely acclaimed Real Racing [$6.99].

As part of the launch promotion, Volkswagen is giving away six limited edition 2010 Volkswagen GTI MarkVI prize cars to six U.S. players of the game. Details of the giveaway will be posted at http://www.VW.com/RealRacingGTI.

We loved the full version of the game, so this free Lite version is a "must try" for anyone who hasn't played the game yet.

    It'd be nice if owners of the full version could get this car in their game too. Feels just redundant for me to have to download a trial to use this car.

    if ppl STILL didn't "get" this game, i douno why they would after GTI addition.

      $6.99 is still a premium-priced app for one to invest without a Lite version. I'm sure VW paid a hefty premium for this Lite app. Good move by Firemint. I already got RR, so it doesn't affect me one way or the other.

    Is it just me or the detail on the vehicles in this one greatly exceeds the one in the full version? WTB update of car details for all models in game!

    So...lemme get this straight:

    VW is paying Firemint for advertising their car, and at the same time the game serves as a lite version for RR?

    Kudos to Firemint. Brilliant move that rakes in some cash for being a VW ad AND might serve to increase sales of RR.

    Whoever came up with the idea at Firemint deserves a raise.

    This is a totally cool idea. Real Racing is by *far* the best racing game the iPhone has .. and now people can try out this version and realise "hell yeah, Real Racing *is* worth the asking price." That's the one premium game I never regretted paying for. It's sooooooo good. {/end fanboy}
