For this achievement you need to earn a Platinum medal while completing a story mission with a Street Car. There are a few pre-requisites that you’ll need to complete before being able to attempt this achievement. They are:

• Reach Player Level 50 – This unlocks the ability to earn platinum medals.
• Buy a high quality Street car.
• Tune a Street car to above 1200

Reaching Player Level 50
Reaching Player Level 50 is very straight forward as you earn XP for everything that you do in the game and, just by following the story missions to the end and attempting some Skills as you go, you’ll comfortably reach level 50.

Buying a quality Street Car
The following are the best street cars in my opinion, and certainly the ones that helped me get the most platinum medals:

• BMW Z4 sDrive35is 2011
• Nissan Skyline GT-R (R34)
• Mini Cooper

However, these are by no means the cars you must use and you may well find yourself with another car that you feel more comfortable with.

Tune a Street car to above level 1200
This requires you to unlock platinum level parts for each part of your car. Please see the guides for the The Modfather achievement for a thorough walkthrough of how to tune-up your car to level 1180 and beyond, all the way up to 1299. You can access the guides here:

Recommended Street Car Missions
With a highly tuned, good quality Street Car you should have no problem getting platinum on either of the following missions, each of which are low level missions that take place in Detroit:

• The Initiation
• The Driving Test

Medals are awarded based upon your score and the biggest influence on your score is how quickly you complete the mission. You also get a small bonus for how much time you spent in 1st place in the race.

For The Initiation, if you can get a completed time of less than 1:38 and stay in 1st place for at least 90% of the race, then you are guaranteed Platinum.

Helpful Videos
Below are a couple of youtube videos I found which demonstrate getting a platinum medal on the missions mentioned above. Credit for them goes to Tiago G, who is the owner of both videos.
