The streets of L.A. The birthplace of illegal streetracing. Here, the drivers of the fastest and most showy cars are the legends of the night. The competition is cut-throat. Modify your rides, take up challenges and win. Climb the ladder of the underground hierarchy and become the new king of L.A. Overspeed puts you in the seat of one of 10 stock import cars challenging you to seek out random street races at nighttime, earning parts and cars. You slowly mold your vehicle into a finely tuned racing machine, capable of taking anything 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. The player is able to disassemble, repair, and upgrade their vehicle part by part. From bumpers to sway bars...nearly every possible part that is found on an actual vehicle is not only present in Overspeed, but removable, damageable, and upgradeable. A detailed city resembles the feeling of Los Angeles, with diversified roadways, corners, and intersections that made the dynamic street races a possibility.
