About This Game

Return to the Days Of Thunder

The golden age of motor sports has returned. Experience one of the world’s most exciting racing series in GT LEGENDS, including the legendary touring cars of the 60′s and 70′s. Collect more then 90 original FIA GTC-TC team vehicles and demonstrate your driving skill on real European racetracks.


GT Legends was announced summer 2005 and presented to media with a response that was overwhelming. The only concern expressed by the media present at the time was that they were previously blown away by GTR, and now they wanted to rate GT Legends even higher!


GT Legends keeps the authentic driving experience from GTR and takes the game play to a new level with a career mode. Enjoy the historic GT cars with vehicles like Ford Mustang, Shelby Cobra, Corvette, Jaguar, Lotus, TVR and other goodies from the 60’s and 70’s.

One of the best racing experiences I've ever had using a controller.

My favourite racing sim for years. A must have for any racing sim and classic car fans.

Community still alive and kicking, plenty of mods around.
For online racing, your best bet is to find a group that has scheduled events. I race(d) at racedepartment.com, great guys there. Even got a few poles and wins; every single one of them in the Mini :D

A huge THANK YOU to whoever had a part in bringing this amazing game and the GTR games to Steam - you deserve a standing ovation.

If you missed this classic gem and have ANY interest or appreciation of racing sims, now is the time to get it. GT Legends and GTR 2 are still as good as every other racing game available, and for my 2 cents the only games that top them are still being made. The initial package brings a lot to the table but the daunting collection of cars and tracks from the sim-racing community available makes it an absolute must-have.

This is racing... get in it

Game is perfect, no other word for it. It has everything going for it, there's not 1 bad thing about this game.

1) Cockpit view is amazing.

2) Night time racing is awesome.

3) Night time racing in a convertible with cockpit view is one of the best experiences i've had in a racing game.

4) Night time racing in a black Chevrolet Corvette in cockpit view (windscreen is incredibly narrow) is absolute boss. Unbelievably good.

5) The endurance races (20/60 laps) don't feel like endurance races because every second is great.

5) The handling is perfect. The cars don't feel like a yacht, but you can't just throw them around either. It is balanced perfectly.

6) Moving up in cars is great. Going from a Lotus Cortina, to a Ford Mustang, to a Chevrolet Corvette, to a Ford GT is great. The speed difference is notable in each jump, and the engine noises, especially from Cortina to Mustang, is awesome.

7) Physics are crazy. You can easily flip or roll the car, but that adds to the fun.

8) No popularity simulator single player crap like most modern racing games have, just simple trophies.

9) Great selection of cars and tracks.
