“Midnight Club: Los Angeles” is the fourth instalment of the “Midnight Club” series of racing games developed by Rockstar Games. Players can buy new cars over the course of the game, but the Audi R8 must first be unlocked through the Rockstar Social Club. This car becomes available for purchase after the player completes all 12 Social Club Challenges in the game. You must create (or log into) a Rockstar Social Club account and sync it to “Midnight Club: L.A.” before these challenges can be completed.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • £76,700 in game money
  • Rock Star Social Club account linked to Xbox Live gamertag or PlayStation Network ID

  1. 1

    Start any game mode in "Midnight Club: L.A." after synching your Rock Star Social Club account to the game. The Social Club Challenges measure your progress automatically. These challenges will not typically be completed in order.

  2. 2

    Earn a total of £0.6 million from winning races to complete the first Social Club Challenge. This is a cumulative total of all race winnings--you do not have to win the £0.6 million at once.

  3. 3

    Drive a total of 5,000 miles to complete the second Social Club Challenge, which will take about 25 to 50 hours of game play to accomplish. This will also complete the sixth Social Club Challenge, which requires you to drive for 25 total hours.

  4. 4

    Win 350 total races, and 25 races in a row. It does not matter which races you win to complete this challenge. This will complete the third and ninth Social Club Challenges.

  5. 5

    Drive 10 miles on only the two side wheels. This will complete the fourth Social Club Challenge. Hold down the L1 button (PS3) or Left Bumper (Xbox 360) to enter the special ability mode. Press left or right on the thumbstick to drive on your left or right set of wheels.

  6. 6

    Drive 15 miles on the two rear wheels to complete the fifth Social Club Challenge. Hold down L1 or the Left Bumper on the controller to enter special mode. Pull back on the thumbstick to perform a wheelie. You will also complete the seventh Social Club Challenge (which requires using 5,000 special abilities) while completing the fourth and fifth challenges.

  7. 7

    Jump slip roads during races. The eighth Social Club Challenge will be completed once your total jump distance is over 200 meters.

  8. 8

    Ram your car into 1,000 opponent cars and 10,000 objects during races. This will complete the 11th and 12th challenges. You will destroy at least 250 cars doing these challenges, which will complete the 10th challenge as well.

  9. 9

    Go to the garage once all 12 challenges are complete. The Audi R8 will be available for purchase for £76,700.

Tips and warnings

  • The Audi R8 is one of the faster cars in “Midnight Club: L.A.,” but several of the other exotic cars are faster. However, it is one of the most cost-effective cars in the game, due to the relatively low $118,000 price tag.
