Need for Speed: Most Wanted (2012) Ultimate Speed Pack Contents
If you've already completed most of the main game, this DLC is pretty much an extension of that. To unlock both single player achievements, you'll need to shut down the new Most Wanted car, and place first in each of the 25 new events. There are 5 events for each of the 5 cars. 4 of the 5 cars will be available for use as soon as the DLC is purchased. The 5th, is unlocked by winning the new Most Wanted event.
All the new Jack Spots are marked by a flaming wheel icon on the map. They are available from the start, and do not need to be discovered.
There are also 5 new billboards to collect. For now, they don't appear to unlock anything. For completionists and people that like competing for jump distances, you can see all 5 new billboard locations in the video below.
There are two new achievements which require access to multiplayer. They involve unlocking several license plates by completing some of the new online milestones. The majority can be completed by yourself in a private game, but you will need to have some friends to earn them all.
The cars will need to be unlocked first, which is done by completing 24 events in Speedlists using Exotic cars. The most time consuming part of the DLC will be driving 200 miles in each of the 5 cars to unlock all their mods. If you hit the interstate and keep your speed up, it should only take around one hour for each car. It can be a bit of a grind, but can come naturally if you enjoy just playing multiplayer alot.

Finish first in every race in the Ultimate Speed Pack (Single Player)
There are 5 new cars, and each car has 5 events. Unlike Second is Nothing (achievement from the main game), this achievement isn't unlocked by winning just once in each unique event. Placing first in all 5 events using all 5 cars is required to unlock this achievement. (25 events total)
The events consist of a mix of races and speed runs. The majority are new (indicated by a red icon in the Easy Drive menu), with a couple of old events borrowed from the main game. Start with the easier events and unlock mods to make the higher difficulty events easier.
Four out of the five cars are, along with all their jack spots, are available as soon as the pack has been purchased. The Hennesey Venom GT Spyder is unlocked by winning the "Most Wanted Venom" event and shutting them down after the race.
The new cars in the Ultimate Speed Pack:
Shut down the Hennessey Venom GT Spyder (Single Player)
"Most Wanted Venom" is the one new Most Wanted event. It's the same as the other Most Wanted events from the main game; win the race and score a takedown on them after the race to earn their car.
The event available as soon as the DLC is purchased. Any car can be used, so if you already have a car with all pro mods and already beat the other Most Wanted, this shouldn't be any more difficult than those. Compared to the other Most Wanted events, police offer much less resistance, and there much fewer spike traps.

Unlock 'Supersonic', 'Super Powered', 'Super Natural' and 'Super Freak' License Plates (Multiplayer)
The first 4 of 5 DLC cars will need to be unlocked for use in multiplayer to earn each of the license plates required. This is done by completing Speedlist events in Exotic cars. If you're not sure which cars are Exotics, just use the cars in the DLC. The Zonda R is available from the start. Winning is not required, and can be done in public or private games. The requirements for each car are as follows:
Supersonic -Drive a Pagani Zonda R above 210MPH across the McClane Bridge
You'll need to unlock some mods to increase your top speed before attempting this. If you used the Zonda from the start to unlock the other cars, you should have a good amount of mods unlocked already. I used Track Tires Pro, Burn Nitrous Pro, Lightweight Chassis Pro, Aero Body Pro, Long Gears Pro.
Super Powered -Jump a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse further than 175 yards at Ripley's Point
Ripley's Point is a fairly large area with a good number of jumps. This is fairly easy even without many mods.
Super Natural -Record a 750 yards Drift on the Peterson Street Loop in a Lamborghini Aventador J
I attempted to just drift in circles, but the road isn't wide enough. 750 yards is almost the entire length of the loop. Get some speed before entering the loop and hold the drift until you see the plate unlock. Watch out for traffic.
Super Freak -Jump at least 6 cars in a McLaren F1 at Hodges Airfield
This is NOT cumulative. 6 other players are required, and needs to be done in a single jump. Can be done with any jump in the Airfield. Find players in the Achievement Trading Thread. Players that have not purchased the DLC can help as well.
Takedown an opponent with 'Ultimate Fan' as your License Plate (Multiplayer)
Unlocking the cars
First, the new cars need to be unlocked for use in multiplayer. This is done by completing Speedlist events in Exotic cars. Winning is not required, and can be done in public or private games. A Speedlist consists of 5 events, so this can be done after playing 5 Speedlists. The requirements for each car are as follows:

Unlocking the license plate
The 'Ultimate Fan' license plate is unlocked by unlocking all Standard Mods on all 5 of the Ultimate Speed Pack cars in multiplayer. This can be a bit of a grind because it involves driving 200 miles in each car. All mods can be unlocked in a private game by yourself, with the exception of Impact Protection, which requires 10 takedowns. The requirements for unlocking mods are unchanged in the DLC, and are as follows:
Off-Road - Jump 1,500 yards with Reinforced Chassis equipped.
Track - Drive 25 miles.
Reinflates - Drive 50 miles.
Burn - Free
Powershot - Drive 100 miles.
Lightweight - Get 60 Near Misses with Short Gears equipped.
Reinforced - Drive 200 miles.
Aero - Drive 5 miles.
Impact Protection - Get 10 takedowns with Powershot equipped.
Long Gears - Drift 5,000 yards with Track Tires equipped.
Short Gears - Drive 10 miles
Once 'Ultimate Fan' is unlocked, choose that as your license plate. Find another player and score a takedown to unlock the achievement.
Find players to boost takedowns in the Achievement Trading Thread. For driving 200 miles, you can start a drift in a big open area like the airfield, then rubber band/tape your controller and increase your driving distance while you do something else. Be sure to have at least reinflates equipped because your tires are prone to popping. Donuts work too, but will obviously be slower. Also note, if you're using a wireless controller it'll still disconnect after a few minutes of inactivity.
Another thing to keep in mind when driving 200 miles, is the game rarely auto-saves when playing a multiplayer game on your own. Be sure to quit to single player once in awhile and wait to see the auto-save icon so that progress won't be lost if you disconnect from Autolog or turn off your console.

Edited Sidekicked achievement. I'm pretty sure Pro Mods aren't required. Mistakes were made. All I feel is shame.

The worst part of this DLC is 200 miles x 5 cars. But just found a neat little spot to grind it while AFK.
In the airfield just drift in the centre, there is enough space then rubber band your pad and tape the accelerate and walk away, only important thing to note is you could do with inflate mod otherwise your radius may wander.

Does anyone know if the online pass is needed to unlock and progress with the DLC cars in multiplayer? It seems reasonable that they'd allow you to use them when playing online without a pass.

Sidekicked has glitched on me which I'm pretty annoyed about considering the amount of time and miles I have sunk into the DLC
I have done all 5 cars and earned the 5 Motorhead license plates but the Ultimate Fan tracker in game shows 4/5 cars, the Aventador J is the culprit, despite having all mods for the car it shows 9/10 and thus I can't unlock the Ultimate Fan license plate. Tried a new save but as all stats are server side in MP its no good

I don't know if this has been asked but is the DLC worth the 800MS.? I would hate to blow the points on a bunch of buggy/glitchy DLC that seems lately to be the norm on al Add-on's. Thanks for any responses.
