Zero 4 Champ RR-Z (ゼロヨンチャンプ ダブルアール・ヅィー Double R Dzui Zero Yon Chanpu?)[3] is the sequel to the Japan-exclusive Super Famicom game Zero 4 Champ RR. Vehicle manufacturers in the game include Honda, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Mitsuoka, Nissan, Subaru, and Toyota.[4] This game is considered to be an anime-style racing game with ans extensive simulation mode.[4] Similar in premise to Rocky III, the 18-year-old that the player controlled in Zero Champ RR became the champion of the Japanese Drag Racing World but was insulted.[4] As a result, he moved to a new city to start his drag racing career over from scratch.[4] Automatic transmission is now included but has a 0.5 second stall time between changing gears.[4]

There are three options on the title screen; the full story (involving the 18-year-old driver pursuing his dreams), a versus mode (allowing players to use all the automobiles available in the game), and a mini-story mode that allows players to play on episodic matches in selected high-priced racing vehicles (some of them costing almost one billion yen). An example of a playable mini-story would involve a Back to the Future-type scenario about going back 300 years to the year 1995 in order to beat a record in drag racing.
