    This one is a bit tricky. The only way I was able to achieve that kind of speed was using the Bugatti Veyron and using the Le Mans circuit. Please note that you need to use the alternate version (Mulsanne) without chicanes on the long straight. The usual Le Mans layout does not provide straights that are long enough.

    Edit: Thanks to J1MMEH G for pointing out that this can (and should!) be done in free mode :)

    SkrypekThis one can be a little frustrating. The road is kinda narrow, and you have to be pretty carefull, it's easy to scratch the sides at those high speeds. It's just long enough to reach 384 km/h at the very end before hitting the wall on the curve ending the long straight, so if you use breaking assist it may cut you ooff when you are just about too reach the target speed.

    Super easy to get without having to buy, upgrade or tune anything. You should also unlock the following achievement in the progress:

    Forza Motorsport 4Flat OutThe Flat Out achievement in Forza Motorsport 4 worth 6 pointsEarn a perfect Speed score.

    What you need to do is from the main menu go into:
    Free Play > Hot Lap > Bugatti > Veyron 16.4 > Le Mans > Old Mulsanne Circuit

    The plan is to reach 240MPH (~390KMH) on the extremely long straight. Just drive like you normally would for the first section and when you get on the straight floor it.

    It'll take a while to get up to the intended speed but you will eventually reach it, most likely on your first attempt.

    If you, against all odds, haven't reached the speed required when at the end of the straight you can always turn around and drive down the straight again!

    PUDDIE NZIf you have an issue and don't make it on the straight, just turn around and do it the other way. much easier :)

    Watch the video!!!
    Info prior to watching: In order to get his achievement you first need to enter freeplay mode, choose the Bugatti Veyron for your car and the Le Mans circuit as your map. Then get ahead earlier in the race and maintain your lead onto the straightaway. You should be able to gain enough speed to get the achievement on the straightaway.

    Tips if you are having trouble:
    Go to tuning, inflate your tires to 100%, change your gear ratio to the preset speed option
    Use the rewind button if you run into a wall or if you do not have enough speed going into the straightaway
