Overspeed: High Performance Street Racing, a racing game for the PC launches from City Interactive’s Premiere Silver range of brand new games priced at just£4.99. Drivers of the fastest and most showy cars take to the streets of L.A, the birthplace of illegal street racing to become legends of the night. The competition is cut-throat but race well and climb the ladder of the underground street racing hierarchy to become L.A.’s new racing hero! As players progress through the game, they must modify their rides, take up challenges and win, win, win!

Overspeed puts players in the seat of one of 10 stock import cars challenging them to seek out random street races where you can win parts and cars. Faithfully recreated famous locations of illegal races in Los Angeles come to life for players with diversified roadways, corners, and intersections that made the dynamic street races a possibility. Players must slowly mold their vehicle into a finely tuned racing machine, capable of taking on the streets, but it won’t be easy! There are many other racers out there with these same aspirations, willing to do whatever it takes to get the checkered flag first!

Disassemble, repair, and upgrade vehicles part by part - from bumpers to sway bars - nearly every possible part that is found on an actual vehicle will not only be present in Overspeed, but removable, damageable, and upgradeable. Basic rules of tuning allows players to improve the efficiency of the engine in top gear in order to achieve more speed, change the exhaust system in order to have better acceleration, install a spoiler, a diffuser and door sills to improve aerodynamics and install a nitrous oxide system to boost the power of their ride.
