1001 Video GamesOutRun 2006: Coast 2 Coast appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.
ContestIn March 2006, prior to the game's release, a contest was announced where you could win an OutRun 2 arcade cabinet:
Imagine you're the passenger in an OutRun Ferrari racing down the highway at 200mph. What would you look like if you put your head out the window? SHOW US! Get a camera, get creative, and upload your picture to WIN!The pictures were to be uploaded at the now defunct website: www.outrun2006.com/facemaker
MusicA majority of the music has great nostalgia value since they are either the original tracks from previous Outrun games or remixes. In fact, there are three versions of the classic tracks "Passing Breeze", "Magical Sound Shower" and "Splash Wave" included in the game (although you have to unlock most of them).
