Well i'll tell you based on my opinion..first use an RX-8....then when tier 2 car's show either Lotus Elise or Porche Cayman S and tune them on the setting's you prefer.Now when your in the last stage on Darius's turf..But either Ford GT/Lamborghini or the Mercedes.

Mitubishi the perfect
Guest said: 29th Jun 2019 | REPORT
yeah well that depends on your playstyle, i used murcielago for a challenge to beat darius, well did the job, overotook him on cannon, tip tho, dont tune for topspeed in boss battle for darius since there are many turns, and exotic cars of lamborghini are a bit hard for steering,

Corvette Z06 in Silverton and Camaro SS in Kempton. While in Downtown & Fortuna, it's the 1969 Dodge Charger R/T

Its murcielago
Guest said: 13th Mar 2017 | REPORT
murcielago is bad because he has to much power to turn
Guest said: 19th Jul 2017 | REPORT
murcielago is good agaist all races but not so much with Darius, but in like cop chase but that is so fun in a Dodge Carger R/T I got to 20 mins in a Charger in a cop chase so fun
skyline_2fast_luffy answered:

Best car to beat Darius is Chevrolet Corvette Z06.I overtook Darius in Canyon.
Murcielago answered:

Based on opinion, the 300C SRT8 is best for the first section of the game. For the 2nd and 3rd, definitely the Charger R/T. For 4th, either the COrvette Z06, or some people said that the Dodge Challenger Concept is pretty good in the end.

you should use the mercedes slr mclaren ,gallardo,elise
mustanggrande answered:

I started with the 69 Camaro, then the 69 Charger, but I tried the Skyline, kept losing the final canyon race so I bought the 1970 Hemi Cuda, and go figure, I beat it on my second try.

davy14uk answered:

Clearly it's up to what best suits you but tier 1 RX8,tier 2 Dodge Charger or RX7

And tier 3 is really up to what Type of car your used to

super cheat man answered:

I think wolfs DB9 is the best car in the game

This is what i was looking for
Guest said: 25th Aug 2016 | REPORT
Well don t think so I couldn t win the last race with it so I got rx7 instead and it was way too easy
shakey_jake answered:

Definately the Lotus Elise, I did the whole game with it apart from the last boss race. Once you have tuned it up to it's best it's just as good as a level 3 car plus it looks cool :D

I beat entire game with it also, except I beat everything with it
chitownzfinezt answered:

Well I don't know about all these rookies but you can beat the game by using the tier 1 camaro, and samson as you're blocker, but yea all those cars are ok if you can't win with tier ones.

chitownzfinezt answered:

I used personally the camaro tier 1, I beat the whole game with it, but for all you starting use any tier 3 when you get it.

I can c the lancer is an exotic (?)
Guest answered:

Finish Challenge so you get 240 SX
Take Camaro, do a few races. No mods.
Sell Camaro for 15k, buy 240 SX and mod it.

I took a fully modded Z06 at the end. When I finished, I had 2 cars with 827000 to spend.

Guest answered:

Ill use Tier 1: rx8, Tier 2: rx7/lotus elise, Tier 3: skyline/ carrera gt/ corvette(I use this one and I pass darius that easily in canyon duel) and use samson, colin, and yumi for your crew

Hope it helps

Guest answered:

Dodge Viper, it humiliates the AI with it's insane accelleration. It's like you're playing a time trial.

Guest answered:

My opinio the best car for the downtown, fortuna and kempton is the nissan 240 sx. Before you start the carrer, go to challenge series and beat the checkpoint race with challenger, murcielago and lancer. The car is really cheap, 18 000, and I just overrun wolf in his murcielago in the canyon race.

BadAssKicker answered:

The best:
Tier 1 - Camaro SS
Tier 2 - Charger R/T
Tier 3 - Corvette Z06
Camaro can easily beat angie and charger can beat kenji single handedly and wolf with a little effort and buying corvette will result in destruction of darius

Guest answered:

First use RX8 then RX7 or the Porsche finally use a Corvette of Lamborghini murcilago

Guest said: 24th Jun 2016 | REPORT
In career only cars they give me is the rx7 and camero, so how can I get another car?
Guest answered:

Personally. I would say that the one of the best cars to beat darius in is the corvette (carefully and awesomely upgraded). IT practically PUKES smoke on darius +The viper ain't bad either.

Guest answered:

240SX is great

I've completed 62% of the Career Mode with it and nothing else. It can also compete with any classes (heck I even won the Race Wars using 240SX while the race are filled with Lambos, Vettes, Vipers & Porsches)

Guest answered:

I was able to use the Camaro until I got to Silverton so I then bought the charger ( new ) I then later bought the viper to beat Darius.

Guest said: 10th Jan 2017 | REPORT
the first you pick the rx8, then in stage 2 RX7 or Charger RT (if you got kenji/angie pinkslip) and the final bought viper/carrera gt yo beat Darius
Guest answered:

Use the Lamborghini Murcielago or McLaren SLS easily the two best cars in the game, very similar in everything, I think the Murcielago had a tiny bit more top speed and McLaren has a tiny bit more handling, easily way better than the low top speed and terrible spinning out Corvette or Viper, and their acceleration is not that off of the Viper or Corvette, so with a whole lot better handling these are easily the best choices in the game. Tuner cars just suck, yes you might be able to beat the easy AI but that's the AI and they're easy on story mode, Tuner cars just suck not enough acceleration to even bring their top speed into the conversation which is more than muscle but they accelerate so slow they never reach it. Go with the Lambo or Mercedes

Guest answered:

I beat the whole game with just the tier 1 Camaro and Angie's car. It took me a week to win the final race against Darius but I somehow got ahead of him on the first turn and avoided getting T-boned.

I passed Darius on the first turn and he was dust. I used my completely stock Subaru Impreza.
Guest answered:

Use the corvette you can overtake darius in the first corner

Guest answered:

Watch professional speedrunners. They always pick the best possible car. For example, early on they buy the mazdaspeed 3 because it is better than most T2's once upgraded

won every race with 240sx
Guest answered:

Beat the game with jaguar xk lol. Modded it with horsepower and acceleration.

Guest answered:

The Corvette is BY FAR the best car I'm the game. Fully tuned, only a Viper can rival it's acceleration, and if you throw into the ecuation it's the muscle car with the best handling in the game, you get the ultimate car. Breathtakingly fast at both straights and corners. Ridiculous car. Like Usain Bolt at Berlin 2009

Guest answered:

It doesnt matter what car you drive against Darius,you need to know how to drive,I was boring one day and I (just for fun) I beat Darius With almost every car at first so it's not that hard to win against Darius.

Guest answered:

I used the Mazda rx-8 and then I was lucky enough to get all 3 boss cars so I used those for a while but I had to use the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution (I got frim beating Kenji a second time) and I beat wolf with it and got the lamborghini murcielago and beat Darius with that. I don’t RECCOMEND using the lambo murcielago for Darius’s battle, because I barely did it and it wasn’t easy.

If you want all the pink slips. Then first turn off the autosave feature. This way if you don't get the pink slip, you can do boss race again. Then save it after you have won the car.
Guest answered:

I'm using supra actually :v

Guest answered:

Use the Nissan 240sx upto Tier-2 races then after use Corvette Z06 for rest of the game. Also start the career with Tuner class. This way you can unlock Z06 by completing a checkpoint race in silverton.

Guest answered:

Every Tuner or Exotic car sucks against end game bosses when it comes to downhill. I highly recommend tier 3 muscle cars: Chevrolet Corvette Z06 or cheaper Dodge Viper SRT-10. Their handling might a bit suck, they beat every car when it comes to acceleration and top speed. With such high acceleration you overtake bosses on the first 100 meters

Guest answered:

Camaro ss shelby mercedes

Guest answered:

It is the Porsche Carrera GT, If you get the right tuning it is a monster
