Description of the video above: How I made 62,500 points in Iceland, Season 8, Gate Drift. For some racing fans this event is one of the hardest challenges in Asphalt 8: Airborne's career mode. With Koenigsegg Agera R, Upgrades 4/3/4/3, Rank 1581. Not perfect, missed two gates. Played with iPad Air and tilt controls.

Essential reading especially for Asphalt newbies:

Gameloft: Frequently asked questions about Asphalt 8: Airborne (The same in German.) The FAQ in this thread as well: Part #1, #2 and #3.
List with all races of career mode with "recommended ranks". Helps with decisions what to buy and what to upgrade.

Some leaked information and early tests (updated):

Interesting not only for devs Developer's Diary (located in Barcelona):

47 new licensed super sports cars, among them: Lamborghini Veneno, Ferrari FXX Evoluzione und Chevrolet Corvette C7! Complete list of cars v.1.0.1

I made the next screenshot on iPad 4:

Wikipedia: Chevrolet Corvette C7:

The Chevrolet Corvette (C7) is a sports car being produced by the Chevrolet division of General Motors introduced for the 2014 model year.
"Asphalt 8 features eight all new maps from the Nevada desert to the city streets of London, the canals of Venice plus a bonus revamped Monaco track for our A7 fans. Yes, there is snow. And dust. And rain! Hydroplane through the water-soaked streets of Tokyo after a heavy downpour or slip and slid across frozen tracks in Iceland. And each map features a host of alternate routes to explore and conquer.

Brand new physics engine. Gate Drift & Infected. In Gate Drift you’re challenged to ‘drift’ through multiple gates. The more you get through, the more points you get. While, Infected is more of a big game of tag. One player starts as ‘infected’ and must hit another car to pass the infection along and regain their health. If they don’t pass the infection to someone within 20 sec they’re eliminated.

Pull death-defying stunts, destroy objects in your path, and catch major air off ramps all thanks to the new physics system! But, don’t think you’ll be by yourself on these epic tracks. Asphalt 8 will feature both synchronous and asynchronous multiplayer so you can challenge your friends around the clock!" (Source: Gameloft blog.)

Download size is 884 MB, install size is 1.47 GB (you'll need twice that size temporary for install or update over the air). Supports Game Center & iCloud (debut in the Asphalt series btw—was "Gameloft live" before).

Listen to some beats during download!

For some local buddies and me personally each Asphalt series version (since Asphalt 4/iPhone 3G) was always our favorite iOS action/arcade game and since the iPad best video game of all times and all consumer software/hardware platforms because of the exciting local multiplayer features! And I'm pretty sure this won't change with Asphalt 8: Airborne! (I've tested, played and reviewed ~8,000 iOS games since 2008 and several other gaming platforms.)

Some images by Gameloft:

Some more leaked screenshots (by Gamereactor Danmark):

Edit. Made this screenshot with my iPad 4 right now (tap/click for original pixel resolution):

With Audi R8 e-tron in French Guiana.

Short test on iPhone 4 (no online multiplayer, only local via WiFi what's okay for me), iPhone 5 and iPad 3: Passed. Failed: iPad orig. ("iPad 1"; can't install "not compatible because of missing gyro sensor", obviously A7 was the last Asphalt for iPad orig.—and A6 the last for OS X btw with local mp of course).

Thermo-nuclear green "Infected" mode in Barcelona w Audi RS 3 Sportback:

Back in 1932, Mercedes Benz had came out with their Motor and Formula One racing car, The Silver Arrow. The Silver Arrow was very successful, and the most popular car for german racers in the 1930s. 79 years later, at the 2011 LA Design Challenge, Mercedes Benz were showing off their concept car, Silver Lighting.

And no, I'm not affiliated with Gameloft in any way. Just enjoying and recommending highly, highly A8!

Greetings from a little country in the Alps
one of the gorgeous tracks in Asphalt 8: Airborne!
PS: And no, you can't drive through avalanches in real life.
