Has anybody tried the Phantom Corsair in terms of cost? It says in the description that it costs 24,000 to produce so I suppose it's worth a try.

would like to know this too..

was going for this cheevo today, reckon i had burned out about 40 cars from the start of the mission and then the guy tripped over something on the road and got run over..
MISSION OVER OFFICER DIED... well gutted, i was just about to start the campaign so id advise everyone not to try and get the 40+ cars in one section of the mission, do maybe 10 and then a bit of the crime, then another 10 etc etc.

This is how I got this achievement not 5 minutes ago:

The Phantom Corsair is worth 24,000 and the Deusenberg Walker Coupe is worth 25,000. Just destroy both of these, finish the case and you'll have it. They're both hidden cars, so their locations will be on the map.

Then again, you could just destroy a bunch of hidden cars and unlock the achievement, but those two cars are the only ones with values posted on the Social Club Website.

Really? I destroyed both of the cars and some other vehicles for about 10 minutes and ended up with $83,000 in total. I could try destroying a bunch of the hidden vehicles and post what my total is. Sorry about that, I was just posting from my experience.

No, I think it's me. I destroyed 3 fire trucks and like 15 cars yesterday and it only amounted to 33,000...Maybe it's because I'm on the PS3 ...I'll try again later, thanks.

Are you on GAF brah? I saw this exact same post on gaf and bookmarked it for future use on my computer. I'm just trying to see which mission is the shortest first. I'm currently going through all missions trying for 5 stars.

Im guessing the second last arson case is the shortest?

Btw awesome strat! I hope it works for me.

Damn. I did the strat and only got 16k vehicle damage. This achievement is so silly, ugh it's going to be a huge grind.

very helpful thread, using the Firetruck Method along with a couple of the hidden cars I was able to do $98000 in vehicle damage & it only took me about a half hour to do it & complete the case.

It was funny though when the guy from the Traffic desk was talking to me at the end of the case he congratulated me on my good public presence despite the fact that I destroyed everything & killed one person by running over them

This. I literally went to the phantom corsair, destroyed it, fast travelled to the other, wrecked that.
Then went to the crime scene so i got the little autosave, destroyed both cars once more, finished the case with $74,000 damages. 1100G, gotta wait for the slip of the tongue to release on the marketplace =(

Saw this tip on a Youtube video comment:

It said something along the lines of destroying the hidden Phantom Corsair and then driving back to where you find it and re-destroying the Phantom again. Personally I did this around 10-15 times and I had $229,980 vehicle damage.

EDIT: Hadn't read the thread so I didn't see that someone else suggested it above :P

Yeah i also got this by smashing the hidden cars. Was going to use the fire truck but then it occured to me the hidden cars are worth a lot more.

I used the Corsair as well. Very fast and surprisingly tough. I kept destroying them over a period of 30 min or so and wound up with over $178K in damage.

This was way easy, I ended up going overboard, and racked up like 300k worth of damage. About 10 minutes worth of head on collisions got me there in no time

Hey to anyone going way over the amount, (I'm sure it was on this site I read it)

When you hit $47,000, your partner will say, "You're a Goddamned Menace!"

It took me about 10-15 mins of easily crashing cars untill he said it, I smashed two more up for good luck & had $48,000 at the end, kind of easy!

He says this anyway when you crash. Its one of his random lines for driving dangerously.

The firetrucks? You do know that the game is heavy on the console's memory, right? Just roam around 2-3 blocks away and come back, the firetruck will respawn.

I can confirm this is false.

I just sat here, did it until he said that line and had only reached 38k for Vehicle Damage.

Players are wasting a lot of time here.

Just use the most expensive car in the game, 25,000$ one, and crash it twice. I got it this way.

Head to Social Club if you don't know the values of all vehicles.

Lie. He will say it at random times. When I was crashing around for fun the partner said it more than five times during the time where I didn't even reach to 10 000$.
