Quick description; I took photos of 200+ cars in under 45 minutes (Xbox One X + external SSD so mileage may differ).

Select any Drag Race and choose "Change Car". Using X you can sort on Car Type. Scroll all the way left to the first Car Type and choose the lowest level car like D, C or B if possible. Now start the Drag Race and if everything works, you will be matched with 4 to 8 different cars from this particular Car Type.

Once the race starts, hold UP on the D-pad for about 0.5s, move the camera back a bit (showing all cars in one shot) and press the right BUMPER/SHOULDER on your controller. It will quickly take a picture (not saving / editing / focusing as usual), tally all unique cars in the photo. Press B a few times and immediately Quit the Drag Race.

Now for the rinse & repeat; select the same Race, choose Change Car and select the NEXT Car Type. In some cases you can't easily change within the previously selected Car Type. By the time you done all Car Types (from left to right), you should have 160 to 220 photos already. If you are under 200, start from the left of the Car Types again and now select the highest possible car like X or S2. It matches you with different / unique cars for you photos.

As posted in the news section, this achievement will not pop or go live before Thursday June 18 and one should have/get an update for the game in the process.
planchetflawThanks for the bumper point. I've always been using A. This saves so much time.

WhiteythereaperProbably easier to sort by Car Type and go through each class E to X, avoiding trucks, vintage racers and any other category of small numbers of vehicles

Edit: also avoid forza edition cars, they tend to give the Drivatars the same car for fairness

WcG iFredy29I was going to leave a guide for this but obviously one has been done and my method is similar.

Another thing to to point out as the achievement is not out yet, if you've already done 200 different cars you should get the achievement on release as it's most likely retroactive like other achievements released for this game.

ElSelchoIt definitely unlocks retroactively. So if you already took 200 pictures it will unlock next time you start the game.

OMGWTH00111111Didn't unlock retroactively for me. When game launched I took pictures of 300+ cars. About two weeks ago went into the game and noticed all the cars with cameras above them checked my progress I was on 0. Now currently on 10 yay. I know it won't take that long but I've already done this amount once now gotta do it again. Also, house cheevo won't unlock as I've already bought the house.

FZurBiagreat solution, it was quiclky in this way

XxFrAsZeRxXNot sure if it’s because I’m on PC, but the game doesn’t have that RB option. Also, is there a way to check progress somewhere?

EDIT: You should probably mention you have to buy the house to start the promo first for those not aware.

Fuzzmeister JStarting with S2 cars seems much quicker than D

TobesPlaysTo add to this - If you pick different styles of cars, you'll definitely get a good handful of new "other" cars every time you start a new race. Picking a rally car, picking a truck, etc.

ChucklestyleWorks great, started at Trucks all the way at the right and worked backwards through the vehicle types. One or 2 races were a bust but I got it before I hit the end of available types.

MAJICO70As said by @XxFrAsZeRxX, you should purchase 'Sunflower Meadows' house to be able to start taking promo pictures
