    After you have beaten the city champ (unlocked about half way throught the career) you will be asked by Karol to buy a 50% stake in his garages. To do this you must raise $1,000,000 dollars in total. After you have completed this mission the achievement will unlock. Now you can go and see Karol to beat the career. I would make this your priority over beating vehicle champs because once you've paid Karol all the cars and upgrades are free (expect unlock-only).
    To get $1mil I started by doing some more of my missions, for example the tournaments and beating some of the kingpins (unlocked cars can be sold for quite a bit). I also sold all my vehicle except the one I use the most (the Ninja bike). From there I just did 'Welcome to Hollywood' in arcade mode. It is the shortest race, and with 7 opponents, traffic off and on hardest difficulty you can get about $5,400 every race.

    LuckyKant You can sell all of your vehicles and if it takes your cash to over $1mill, you will get the achievement. Do not leave the garage. Once you have the achievement, exit to the dashboard and you will have all your cars and the achievement.

    ScuzzyBunny To clarify...when you buy the garage you have access to EVERYTHING for free, but the "Dub" edition vehicles appear locked (if you have the complete edition)...you CAN still purchase them, they just have the locked icon on them.
