The Mac version of Colin McRae: Dirt 2 was delayed a few months to get it ready for Lion, and now it is finished and ready for consumption. Download the game from many direct download sites including the Mac App Store. The game is available for $39.99.

From the press release:

    Feral Interactive today announced the immediate online release of Colin McRae: DiRT 2. The game’s release has been delayed from July in order to improve compatibility with Mac OS X 10.7 Lion.

    Combining sublime handling, gorgeous visuals and dynamic competition, Colin McRae: DiRT 2 sets a new standard for racing games on the Mac. The game features nine incredible locations around the globe, 41 tracks and over 100 separate racing events, all of which combine to deliver a spectacular, nerve-shattering racing experience.

    Colin McRae: DiRT 2 puts players behind the wheel for a world tour that runs from the mud-soaked Malaysian rainforest to the open desert roads of Morocco and on to the rain-slicked streets of Tokyo. Racers compete in a variety of contemporary sports racing styles, including three special ESPN X Games events. Additionally, the game lets players experience intense multi-car races in head-to-head competitive online play.

    Colin McRae: DiRT 2 includes a premiere collection of officially licensed rally cars and off-road vehicles such as the Mitsubishi EVO X, the Subaru Impreza STI, and the Colin McRae R4. All the cars can be customized to suit the driver’s preferences, experience and racing style, while the adjustable assists and difficulty levels mean that the game can be tailored to suit the skills of the individual.

    When you’re burning rubber, mistakes will happen, but the game’s “Flashback” feature allows racers to repeat the last few seconds of their drive, giving them the chance to correct the mistake that would otherwise cost them dearly.

    “DiRT 2 is an utterly compelling experience,” said David Stephen, Managing Director of Feral Interactive. “For fans of racing games, the Mac just got a lot more interesting.”

    Colin McRae: DiRT 2 for the Mac will retail in North America for US $39.99, £24.95 (inc. VAT) in the UK and €29.95 (inc. VAT) throughout Europe.
