CSR Classics

Classic cars emanate a certain timeless charm capable of enchanting car fanatics in any era. Brought to you by the creators of the best-selling racing hit CSR Racing, CSR Classics delivers the same gameplay experience, but instead of contemporary supercars, it puts you behind the wheels of drag-strip classics from the past 60 years including the Shelby Mustang GT500, the Ford GT40, and the Plymouth Superbird, just to name a few. To make the game more true-to-life, you have to restore your own ride, transforming a rusty pile of junkyard-worthy trash barely reminiscent of a car into a timeless beauty. The next step is trying to take over the city by challenging the gangs that own the streets and defeating their most skilled drivers, or you can always opt for the action-packed multiplayer mode and face off against millions of worldwide challengers to climb the leaderboards and get special cars and prices not available elsewhere.
