I tried doing Red Light Runner with the Koeningsegg for this, and I usually took out about 4 cop cars each round, then I deliberately failed the mission, either by letting time run out or not reaching the points target. I counted 117 cop cars, but no achievement unlocked. This has led me to believe that you MUST finish races in order for them to count. If you can prove me otherwise, please let me know!

I ended up using Escape Artist in the tier 1 with the Koeningsegg. I was able to take out 3 cars and escape with enough time left to hit 1 or 2 stars. What I found to work best is to brake alot when the cop car appears. He will always try to adjust to your speed, so if you brake, he'll immediately brake as well. Just brake down to 20-30mph, and keep hitting the brakes and releasing them at a steady rhythm until you're just behind the cop car.

When you're close enough, release the brakes and accelerate up to the side of him, then slam into him. Brake again, so that you don't fully overtake him, then slam into him again. Repeat this process until you take him out. If you go too far, you can either brake and let him pass you or you could just put your car in reverse and go far enough to get behind him again. In some situations, if you're at a 90 degree angle in comparision to the cop car, you can just slam into him, reverse, slam into him, reverse, etc.
