Volkswagen launches 2010 GTI via iPhone App

Volkswagen had decided to laucnh the GTi using a video game for iphone and ipod touch instead of normal commercials. They figured that there are a crap ton of people with iPhones and iPod touched out there and that they will spend about 10-15 mins engaged with the app and it sure beats a 30 second commercial.

The App went live today on the iTunes store and it is called Real racing GTI (link opens iTunes) and it is available as a free download on the iTunes stores.  One of the cool features of the app is that you can upload your lap times to a leader board and upload a replay of your race to Youtube. And if thats not cool enough for you VW has built 6 special GTIs that will be awarded to players over the next 6 weeks. Who said you needed one more reason to get an iPhone?

here is a reply from a race posted to YouTube

UPDATE: Just posted pics on vortex of what makes those 6 GTIs “special”: http://forums.vwvortex.com/zeropost?cmd=fshow&id=1136
