A new racing title, offering “console-quality” graphics and gaming, sped onto iOS today.

Called GRID Autosport, the AAA racing game offers 100 cars and a whole lot of circuits — all for the one-off price of $9.99, with no additional charges for later content. Check out the spectacular trailer below:

While I haven’t had the opportunity to dive into the game for a full review just yet, it looks and handles beautifully — with the latter being especially crucial for a precision racing game. Steering is done using tilt and touch control, although there is also MFi support available.

The game features a bunch of real life cars including ones made by Alfa Romeo, Aston Martin, Audi, BMW, Bugatti, Chevrolet, Ford, Honda, Mazda, Nissan, Subaru, and more.

One word of advice, though: The game is pretty large. The actual download is 4GB in size, although a DLC pack is 912MB, and 623MB for the HD textures back.

GRID Autosport is available to download for $9.99 from the App Store, available for iPhone SE, iPhone 7 or newer, any newer iPad, and iOS 11.
