Hamburg, November 25 th, 2011 – Volkswagen makes the dreams of all sports car fans come true with the recent release of Sports Car Challenge for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad, which gives you the chance to sit down behind the steering wheel of six of the hottest super cars of the world. The list of cars includes precious high-speed racers such as the Audi TTS Coupé, the Bentley Continental Supersports ISR, the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport, the Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera, the Porsche Cayman R and last but not least the Volkswagen Scirocco R – all of which are prime examples of the perfect blend of raw power and extraordinary designs. Sports Car Challenge is now available for your iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and can be downloaded for free on the App Store.

The game has been developed by the Hamburg-based mobile gaming specialists of Fishlabs Entertainment and stands out as another premium title in state-of-the-art quality. Especially the photorealistic design of all cars is unprecedented on the ad-game market. Extremely detailed 3D models and special shaders for the cars’ paintjobs, metal parts and surface areas make for a stunning visual treat in console quality and a huge variety of authentic colours and rims enables the gamers to fully customize the car of their dreams before they hit the track and experience the realistic driving physics and genuine engine sounds of all six supercars. According to their own preferences, the gamers can chose between automatic and manual gear shift and acceleration and hence experience first-hand what it feels like to go through the seven gears of a four-wheeled powerhouse such as the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport.

With top speeds of more than 400 kilometres / 250 miles per hour, you can race along the track via accelerometer or touch screen and prove your driving skills in three different race modes, namely time trial, slalom and braking contest. Furthermore, full support of Apple’s Game Center enables you to share your personal records with friends and fellow speed freaks whenever you want.
