Colin McRae Rally is a singleplayer and multiplayer racing game developed and published by Codemasters. It is part of the Colin McRae Rally series.

Despite its name, the game is actually based on Colin McRae Rally 2.0, with thirty stages from that game being faithfully reproduced.

Originally released for iOS and Android in 2013 and 2014 respectively, it was ported to Windows and MacOS and released on Steam on July 31, 2014.

It was delisted from Steam on January 10, 2019.
