One of the more popular mobile racing games on Android and Apple devices, CarX Drift Racing 2 has a new update available as of Monday (29th November). Version 1.17.0 for the drift racing handheld experience is headlined by two new cars to race with. They’re called the Consul GT and the Prestigio, likely not familiar names to car enthusiasts.
While there are no officially licensed cars in the mobile racer, these two new cars do take similarities to some well known counterparts. The Consul GT reminds us of the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe, while the Prestigio kind of looks like a Lamborghini Huracán. Also, there are some new body kits available for a handful of existing cars in the game already.
By the way, this mobile game is part of the same group that worked on CarX Drift Racing Online, which is a more fleshed out drift game that’s available on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch platforms. It’s also the same company working on the upcoming CarX Street.
Other new and exciting features are included in the changelog below. I’m checking out this game for the first time, and while drifting really isn’t my style, I must say that the graphics, features, and user reviews are pretty good. If you haven’t tried it out yet, it’s on Google Play and the Apple iOS App Store for free. Let us know what you think about it in the comments!
