  • Extra points

    If you see a police car ahead, ram it to get him to chase you. Lose the police car and you will get extra points for a hit-and-run. Look for the dirt road shortcuts to lose the police and get ahead of other drivers. Also, choose to be the police in Hot Pursuit mode. You will get 25,000 points each time you complete one mini-mission.

    Start You're The Cop mode in single player under the beginner difficulty setting. Select either the Crown Victoria or the BMW M5 (the opponents are easier to catch). Then, go to National Forest and catch the fourth and third cars. On the last two, hit the third one to make him lose control, then arrest the first place car. Immediately catch the second player that you forced to lose control to minimize the time to around 138, if done quickly enough. The procedure is quick but easy, giving you over 25,000 points if you throw in a couple of jumps. Then, restart and do it again.

    When you are racing and are approaching the finish line, press L2 to do a 360 camera spin. If you manage to get your car on the finish line when you do the 360 camera spin, you can gain 175,000 points, if you include a couple of jumps. Note: This only works once, so it must be done accurately.

    In a one player race, when your back tires are on the finish line press L2 to do a 360 degree camera spin around the car. If done correctly, your score will now show about 180,000 points. If your back tires are barely on, then you will only receive about 2,000 points. Note: This can be performed more than once per race. In a clean race, in order to unlock the car all you have to do is finish without hitting any walls.

  • Police check

    If you have the Rear Mirror option on, you should see a meter (radar detection meter) at the bottom of it. If you do not see this meter, it indicates that there are no police in the current race. If you happen to see that meter at the bottom of your rear view mirror, be aware as there are law enforcers on that course.

  • Police detection

    When you are driving, be aware of the shadowed bar below the rearview mirror. It will start to climb with green and then red as you close in on a cop. If a cop is already chasing you and has issued a roadblock, watch the bar. If the strip started with yellow, it indicates that a road block is approaching.

  • Get the police off your tail

    If you have one or two police chasing you, swerve around things such as incoming traffic, trees, poles, or any other immobilized objects. The police may not see it and crash into it. This gives you an advantage to lose them. If you are way ahead of the pack and do not feel like having a police on your tail, if your radar detector detects an incoming radar (or police), zoom on the road (R2) in front of you. See where the police are parked, and slam into the back of their car. It will be a hit and run, but the police car will be dead. You will not even get a yellow star. Also, when you want to get rid of the cop chasing you at a close distance, get just behind him so that your front tire is touching his back tire. Then, turn your car slightly in the direction of the cop car. The officer will get turned around and end up facing in the wrong direction. This should give you enough time to get away. If you are really lucky, he may hit the other racers and cause a big accident.

  • Predict police actions

    Turn the "Speech" option on high in the "Audio" screen when the police are on your tail, especially when police may be present on the race course. Be aware that the police may say something about roadblocks and where they are, as well as what they may try to do to end your speeding frenzy.

  • Yellow stars

    On the upper-right corner of the screen are four star shadows. Each time you break a law or do something bad, you will get a yellow star. For example, a hit-and-run is two stars. If you get four yellow stars, you should beware of roadblocks, including the choppers.

  • Clean race

    There will be two objectives you will have to do to unlock two kinds of cars. These two involve clean racing. For a clean race, avoid hitting any object that inflicts damage on your car, such as hitting another car, a wall, etc. Hitting road signs, going offroad, or landing very hard on big jumps are excluded since those do not do any damage.

  • Scared opponents

    All of your opponents can be scared. If your opponents are directly besides you, suddenly steer towards them, as if you were trying to ram their car off the road. They will panic and veer away from your sudden move. If you are lucky, they may veer away too much, thus causing them to crash into an object, slowing them down. You can also do this to police that are on your tail.

  • Ferrari 360 Challenge

    You must complete all events in Ultimate Racer and World Championship modes. Complete Bonus Event 31 for both to unlock Super Bonus Event 32. Either Event 32 in Ultimate Racer or World Championship modes will unlock the same car. Complete Event 32 successfully and the Ferrari 360 Challenge is yours.
