The Toyota 86 AR app (available on iOS at the AppStore and Android at Google Play) used a giant 9.5m x 6.5m marker.  Positioning the iPad far away from the scene means you get to see the car speed over 120km/h across a large flat sectioned off sanded area, leaving virtual skid-marks, as is life-sized.

There is also an amusing sequence where a person is chased by the virtual car.
