The first gameplay footage of Codemasters' GRID 2, the sequel to Race Driver: GRID, has been released... and it looks stunning.

Two videos are available to view. The first takes you on a high-octane chase on the California coast in a head-to-head, point-to-point duel between a contemporary Boss Mustang and a classic Mustang Mach 1.

The second is a street racing stage in Chicago, where muscle cars, including the Camaro SS, Z06 Corvette and Boss Mustang, charge through skyscraper-lined streets and chase through tunnels.
