    I think it's another lucky based achievement in this list. There are 2 ways to obtain it.

    1. Car Drop (not recommended)
    This is confirmed, but this is extremely rare to find a spot with a 10th level car. I found one at the top of the Bamburgh Castle when I have nearly done "100 spots" achievement.
    If you are not good with driving and winning races you can try to find it, but it might be test for your pattience.
    It's not recommended but if you want to do it through car drops try to start at locations where is more than 1 drop spot (Bamburgh Castle, Mudkickers, Mortimer Gardens, Quarry)

    2. Races

    You can upgrade your car by winning Head-to-Head races. After you beat your rival you'll get a reward. In a voting you can choose with your D-pad one of two cars or channel exchange.
    The best way is to find on the map car with the highest level and then win a few races.

    How many races do you have to win ? It depends on yours starting car level and on your opponents and their car levels. In my case I found a level 7 Bentley just after the game started and I had to win 3 races ( every opponent had lower car level than me )

    - If You win H-t-H race against lower lower car level you'll get as reward car with your's level + 1

    - If You win H-t-H race against the same or 1 higher car level you'll get as reward car with your's level + 1

    - If You win H-t-H race against higher car level you'll get as reward car with his level.

    Some race tips

    This might be tricky. Lower level cars mostly have good handling but are slow. You have to start h-t-h at the right direction or you might have trouble to win. At the start races have long distance (4-6 km), after some time races will be shorter, so you have less time to fix mistakes.

    The most dangerous part of this is when you'll get car with 9th level. They are very fast but also very unstable on the grass. I had some 9th level cars like Lamborghini or Ferrari and they are speed monsters but hardly to drive in this cirrumstates.
    You have advantage with power, drive carrefully with no maximum speed. Be carefull at jumps, they are really dangerous.

    There some extra tips for race strategy from ScorchPSO

    Pedle ZelnipI'm with Phil the Bear -- if you're really trying for this it's super frustrating, but if you're working towards other achievements it tends to come naturally. Probably. Well, I think, there definitely (like with everything else in this mode) a fair bit of luck.

    I've never seen a level 10 drop, but have seen a 9: https://www.trueachievements.com/gamescreenshot.aspx?gsid=22... In that same match I also saw a level 8 drop near that spot. Aggravatingly I picked up the 9, did h2h against the first car I saw which turned out to be an 8, and was started facing the exact wrong direction and they were started pointing directly in a straight line to the finish. Ended up being eliminated in the 50's even though I had a level 9 car to start off with.

    The time I did get the achievement, I picked up a level 6 (or maybe 7?), and managed to get the rest of the way on H2H victories against weaker cars. Wasn't even really trying for this achievement at the time, more the "win 3 H2H's in a match" ach.

    CuriousBacon001I recommend trying this at the same time you try to beat someone 5 levels higher than you. As the OP states, level 9 cars are very tricky to drive in these conditions, so try challenging an 8-9 while youre in a level 3-4 car. If you've already got that cheevo, then a level 6 car drop should be good enough and theyre fairly common. At least this way youll only have to win a minimum of 2 head to heads to get to level 10.

    rob25XCollected 100 car drops, not one was level 10. Found a 9 once but lost the race with it.

    Leadfoot2010I came across a pair of racers in the middle of a Head-to-Head race, one of which is a Level 10 car. I followed the racers to their destination because I know that whoever wins that race is going to have that Level 10 car. So I immediately challenged the winner, win the race, and the Level 10 car is mine!

    KinectKid333Definitely will get harder the longer you wait. The longer you wait to go for this achievement, the more the online will die for this game mode. The dead-er the online becomes for this game mode, the shorter the games will be, meaning there's less time to look for a good car drop and less time to get to level 10 by winning H2H matches.

    In fact, I think soon this gamemode will enter a weird timeframe where the online is alive enough to make boosting this achievement very difficult, but is dead enough to make getting this achievement legit very difficult as well.

    KILLANEYROCKSThis is total bs the 3 eliminator achievements are hard enough to get

    Dobermann XFuck this game again! I was level 8 against level 3, a house popped from nowhere with hard walls, impossible to get on the road fast enough to win, so the other one got a free achievement because of this shitty level design! Arg I really hate this game mode so much. Didn’t wanted to play it, but now that I’ve unlocked every other achievements I need this stupid ones.

    SashamorningDamn. I thought you needed to find a 10 in the wild. I found a 9... and promptly traded down to a 4 so I could move toward 100 cars. laugh
