Everyone knows that with a game like CSR Racing 2, half the fun is in buying and upgrading your cars.

Of course, you can take the long way 'round and earn money by winning races and completing challenges.

However with 29 cars to buy and many more to win, who has time to sit on their buns for hours on end to earn that amount of in-game currency?

Well, that depends entirely on what you're willing to spend.

Let's have a look at what it costs to purchase the currency needed to buy these shiny things:

Just looking at purchasable cars off the bat, you could be spending £160/$210+ on Gold, and £400/$500+ on in-game Cash.

That's not including whatever you'd spend on the different keys for entering to win rare cars (that's 10 gold keys), spending a little on Chance (that's 50 silver keys) or just choosing to win parts and prizes (a whopping 100 bronze keys a pop).
