Small edit: Any further small notes about this achievement, as more updates are released for this game, can be found in the comments of this solution. I will only update the main solution if any major time or money savers come up.

Alright, so here's the deal with this achievement. To put it short, if you don't want to dish out 100$ MINIMUM and MANY! tens of hours for this achievement, just ignore it. This is one of the most ridiculous achievements out there up to the level of "Seriously..." from Gears of War 1 (if you don't pony up hundreds of dollars for credits too), to give you a rough idea. This will be more of a general guide for this game, but will focus mostly on this achievement.

Now, with that out of the way, let's go into a bit of detail. To get this achievement, you must obtain 5 stars in ALL of the events in seasons 1 to 8. Season 9 is NOT required for this achievement, [05/02/2016] nor is the Tag Season. [05/02/2016] There are 234 events in total (6 new events were added recently) that you need to complete with 5 stars. In general, you get 3 stars in an event if you finish in first place and you get another 2 if you accomplish 2 special requirements that you can see after you select the event.

In this game, there are 2 currencies:
1. Credits, that you earn normally through gameplay and you use them for purchasing cars, decals, car upgrades, boosts and basic Pro Boxes (that give you 4 random cards used for further improving your cars);
2. Tokens, that you can earn from timed events (from finishing the event once in 1st place or/and from qualifying high on the event's leaderboard, based on your lap time in non-multiplayer timed events or on your score that you accumulate by beating other people in multiplayer timed events) or buy them with real life money (which is the main way to get these) and use them to purchase cars, decals, boosts and advanced Pro Boxes (that give you rarer cards for much better car improvements). [05/02/2016] You can also acquire 1 token for watching an ad whenever it is available in the Token market screen.

Whenever you get a new car, always buy the first set of upgrades for it. They are pretty cheap and makes winning the event a bit easier. Don't take the recommended rank into consideration too much, you can still win events with a bit of struggle when the difference between the recommended rank and the rank of your car is about 100, after which it becomes VERY difficult or impossible to win and at that point you need a better car or you need to upgrade your current car a bit more. You will get a feel for it as you progress through the game.

Many times you will come to an event where you need a car that costs WAY more credits than you currently have. It's best to move on to later events, getting five stars in them, in order to rack up credits, because later events will reward you with more credits (the base credits for ending in 1st place, that is; credits for performing stunts, drifting, doing perfect runs, etc. remain the same, regardless of the event).

When you cannot progress anymore because you don't have enough stars for the next season and need to buy some cars that cost a lot more credits than you have, find the shortest and latest event that is available to you and farm it for enough credits to buy a car and go on from there. When you get new cars, always skim through the earlier events just to check if you can use them in those too.

Eventually, you will unlock season 9, where only maxed out cars can be used. I, personally, ground the Lamborghini Countach 25th Anniversary vs. Ferrari Testarossa event in season 8 (~4500 credits in 3 minutes) to get enough credits to fully upgrade the Audi S4 in order to use it in its MAX event from season 9 (~4600 credits in 1 minute and 40 seconds; about 2 minutes with time in between races) and then ground that one to fully upgrade the Cadillac CTS-V Coupe Race Car in order to use it in its MAX event from season 9 (~4600 credits in 1 minute; about 1 minute and 20 seconds with time in between races) and that is the fastest track I've discovered with the best payout. Events from season 9 where you use top tier cars will give you a bit more credits, but upgrading those cars to MAX will take A LOT of credits, so I don't consider it worthwhile.

Alternate credit farming method suggested by Tendoman77: "the Mclaren P1's final race. If anyone manages to fully max and pro it out you can earn just over 6k per race, and with a 24 hour x2 boost its over 12k! Even though its a Unplugged event it only takes around a min to complete since its on such a short track, plus the opponents aren't too hard to beat."

At this moment you should understand the rate at which you can earn credits and to give you a rough idea of how many credits you need overall just to buy all of the cars you need for all of the events, you will need more than 10 million credits, which is absolutely INSANE. Just for one car you will need a whopping 2.25 million credits, which is soul crushing. If you don't pay any money for credits, you will need to grind that one event (the Cadillac event mentioned earlier) more than 2000 times, or between 40 and 50 hours continuously, most likely more.

Now, the credit grind is colossal, but ultimately doable. Let's talk now a bit further about real life money. The events where you will need token cars (which are cars you can only buy with tokens) are found within the "New Events Available" section within seasons 3,5,6 and 8. [05/02/2016] New events were added where token cars are needed: in Season 1 you need the Renault DeZir which costs 180 tokens, in Season 2 you need the Azura NSX 2005, which costs 525 tokens. There are 6 token cars you must purchase and their total cost amounts to, basically, 100$, a 100$ token pack to be more specific. You need a total of 12300 12550 13255 tokens to buy these 6 cars and the 100$ token pack will give you 15000. Financially speaking, there's no better choice.

Now, you might wonder that you can save yourself some money by earning some tokens from timed events, but I tell you, it is really not worth it to struggle to get a good enough position on the event's leaderboard AND maintain it constantly until the event ends, just to receive a few hundred tokens and events last as much as a week. You'd need to put in WAY too much time to maintain your position and ultimately, it would only be a waste of time. [10/02/2016] I've learned from recent reports that participating in timed events is actually a viable solution for obtaining this achievement. Be forewarned though, that you will need plenty of dedication and perseverance to gather enough tokens through timed events and other in-game activities. It is a many months long ordeal, but it is possible.

That's about as much as there needs to be known about this achievement. To end this wall of text, consider going for this achievement ONLY if you have 100$ that you want to spend in this game and would feel no remorse in doing so OR if you plan on spending many months painstakingly gathering tokens through timed events and other activities.

To whomever manage to obtain this, I bow to those people. This is one beast of an achievement, both EXTREMELY grindy and VERY expensive for such a little game like this.
