I can’t ever see myself ditching this Akira livery in The Crew 2

Now I just need to find a biker gang

It may not be an exact replica of Kaneda’s bike from Akira, but this user-made livery for The Crew 2 is good enough for me. I think it captures the spirit of the design; my imagination can do the rest.

I’m at the point now in the open-world racer where I don’t particularly want to bother beating every single event or grinding for vehicle parts when I could just as easily be out there on a road trip without a care in the world. That’s my favorite aspect, by far — just hitting the road and only making pit stops when I see something interesting off the beaten path or encounter other like-minded players.

You know what makes road trips better in The Crew 2? Driving a cool-looking ride. I haven’t tried to create my own designs yet, but I have been regularly looking out for neat player-made liveries these past couple weeks. Tonight, I found one that I immediately had to track down in the game.

The creator’s original post has since vanished, but I managed to find their Akira-themed livery on PlayStation 4 and equip it to my Ducati Panigale R without much fuss. I’m so glad that I did! Credit to daRuckus2o3 for taking the time to transform 360 shapes into such a slick motorcycle livery.

I couldn’t resist jumping off the Luxor Las Vegas pyramid. It just seemed like the thing to do.

If you happen to be playing and enjoying The Crew 2, let this be your casual reminder to dig into the user-created liveries. You can customize your vehicles at your home in Miami or Los Angeles.
