- street racing
- Street racing is a form of unsanctioned and illegal motor racing which takes place on public roads. Street racing can either be spontaneous or well-planned and coordinated.
- All the big driving genres – arcade, rally, F1 – have been done to death, so developers, already fascinated by crime and edgy urban themes, have turned to street racing: the popular culture of taking your Mum's Citroen Saxo, sticking a massive spoiler on it and then annoying tax-payers by racing

A Wide-open LA Like You’ve Never Imagined
Midnight Club Los Angeles drops players into a painstakingly recreated version of world-famous Tinseltown. Broken down into five distinct open-world gameplay areas, linked on the game map, cumulatively these areas comprise a massive area, much larger than anything ever seen in previous Midnight Club releases and possibly larger than any existing racer to date. Within these areas, Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, Hollywood, Mulholland Drive and Downtown LA, players are free to engage in mission play driving them to attain and customize a wide range of authentic world-class street racing vehicles, or to simply explore the city, taking on all comers in a variety of race types as they wish. Regardless, along the way they will experience not only the visual realism of the iconic boulevards, freeways, and landmarks made famous in TV and movies, but also the realism of the living breathing LA urban experience. Here traffic backs up then clears as people go to and leave work for the day, weather systems come and go and day turns to night, then back again. All the while the race goes on. It’s all part of the living, breathing LA. It’s all part of the Midnight Club.
Midnight Club: Los Angeles will feature an astounding selection of vehicles in the Muscle Car, Exotics, Tuners, Motorcycle and Luxury car categories. At the time of publishing only a fraction of the total list has been announced, but a good sampling of what players can expect at launch can be seen below.

Midnight Club Los Angeles continues the tradition of offering some of the deepest vehicle customization you will find in any video game. The hottest licensed cars and bikes in the world are at your disposal – kit them out, supe them up, and personalize them down to the last detail to make them all your own. Visit the Club’s in-game garages located in Hollywood and Santa Monica and let your imagination run wild – tweaking and fine tuning through the following three different types of vehicle modifications:
Performance & Handling – To become a street legend, you’re going to have to tune your vehicle for maximum performance. The garage offers three levels of upgrades for virtually every component on your vehicle, but it’s up to you to craft the winning combination that will give you the edge on the competition.
Exterior – For the Midnight Club, stunting is a habit and its clandestine Los Angeles garages have all the toys needed to ensure heads turn in this jaded town. From making sure your car is dripping in candy paint, to adding unique body kits and jaw dropping extras, the garage offers practically limitless possibilities to personalize your vehicle with aftermarket accessories and customizable options.
Interior – Don’t embarrass yourself by pulling up with an outrageously kitted-up car that has a ‘me-too’ factory interior. Not a good look! You’re going to be spending a lot of time behind the wheel, so renovate and make yourself feel comfortable.
Beware or Befriend the Local Competition
The street racing scene of Midnight Club is tough, but tight, meaning that everyone that you meet in expansive Los Angeles could just as easily be an ally as an enemy. One thing is for certain though, they are all willing to throw down at the drop of a hat. Just a few of the faces you’ll encounter out on the streets are:
Karol, Age 45 – A veteran of Moscow’s underground street racing circuit, Karol moved to LA in the 1990’s after the collapse of the Soviet Union. If you’re looking for cars, he’s your man. He owns two successful garages and claims to be able to get hold of any vehicle, no questions asked. He also sees himself as a philosopher and will bend your ear if you left him. He mostly races around Hollywood and the Beaches and his rides include a 1975 Datsun 280Z, 1969 Boss Mustang 302, 2006 Dodge Challenger and a 1971 Lamborghini Miura SV.
Annie, Age 31 – Annie has a rep as one of the fiercest drivers in the city. She detests posers and wannabes, is intelligent and sharp-tongued and pulls no punches when it comes to cutting the competition down to size. She has been spotted in everything from a 1983 VW Golf GTI, 2006 Pontiac Solstice, 2008 Chrysler 300C SRT-8, 2008 Audi RS4 and a 2004 Ford Shelby Cobra Concept and can usually be found hanging out near Pink’s Hotdog Stand in Hollywood along with her crew.

• Jay Leno was born in New Rochelle, New York, on April 28, 1950. After The Jay Leno Show was cancelled in January 2010 amid a host controversy, Leno returned to host The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on March 1, 2010.
• Leno has been married since 1980 to Mavis Leno; they have no children. He is known for his prominent jaw, which has been described as mandibular prognathism. In the book Leading with My Chin he stated that he is aware of surgery that could reset his mandible, but does not wish to endure a prolonged healing period with his jaws wired shut. Leno claims to sleep only four to five hours each night. Leno does not drink or smoke, nor does he gamble. He spends most of his free time visiting car collections or working in his private garage.
• Leno reportedly earns $32 million each year; his total net worth is unknown, but has been estimated to be at least $150 million or more. In an interview with USA Today, Leno claimed that he has never spent any of the money he’s made from The Tonight Show, and has always lived off of the millions of dollars he makes each year from performing stand-up.
• JAY LENO’S Vehicle collection
• Leno owns approximately 200 vehicles, including about 100 cars. He also has a website called "Jay Leno’s Garage," which contains video clips and photos of his automobiles in detail. He has a regular column in Popular Mechanics which showcases his car collection and gives advice about various automotive topics, including restoration and unique models, such as his jet-powered motorcycle and solar-powered hybrid. Leno also writes occasional "Motormouth" articles for The Sunday Times, reviewing high-end sports cars and giving his humorous take on automotive matters.
• Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance Class Winning -. Cars and Contemporary, modern and old century works of art at auction for buyers and collectors at Christie’s.
• A dark-red 1934 Alfa Romeo P3 Grand Prix racing car going for between $2 million and $3 million. A 1947 166 Le Mans Ferrari Berlinetta, believed to be the second Christie’s annual Pebble Beach auction remains the preeminent classic car sales event in the United States. High-end automobiles often are sold there for more than $1 million. The other major venue has been Christie’s auction in Tarrytown, N.Y., just north of New York
• Ferrari ever built, running between $900,000 and $1.2 million. A 1958 Cadillac Eldorado once driven by Frank Sinatra fetching up to $ 120,000. These and many other classic car offerings are expected to generate between $5 million and $7 million when Christie’s puts them on the auction block on June 19.
"There is crazy money out there," said David Gooding, senior vice president of Christie’s International Motor Cars. The auction, to be held at the Petersen Automotive Museum in the Fairfax District, is part of the four-day "California Classic" event that includes a classic car rally to Santa Barbara and a concourse on Rodeo Drive.
• While the Christie’s automobile division is based at the firm’s Beverly Hills office, it has not held an auction here since 1983 because other venues were viewed as stronger draws. But the city’s soaring discretionary wealth, largely from the entertainment industry and Wall Street, has steered Christie’s back to L.A.
"When we car folks think of automobiles. we think of Los Angeles," said David Brownell, technical editor of Hemmings Motor News. "It is the car capital of America. Detroit builds them, but L.A. worships them. Christie’s is the top auction house and Petersen’s is the top museum for cars. It’s the perfect marriage." But now the auction house has decided L.A. has sufficiently rebounded from its early-’90s slump. "We definitely felt there was room for another car auction," said Gooding. "There is a lot of room for cars that sell for $50,000 to $ 100,000."
• Not surprisingly, cars that were driven by celebrities are prominently featured at the upcoming auction – and many of them have interesting histories. Sinatra, for example, was stopped by a California Highway patrolman for speeding in his Eldorado during a run from Las Vegas in 1958. Years later, the patrolman’s brother, a car collector, bought the car and gave it as a gift to his sibling, who is now selling the car.
• Another star car is Jack Nicholson’s pale green 1948 Chevrolet Fleetmaster convertible used in the film "Two Jakes." Paramount Pictures. which produced the movie, gave the actor the car as a gift. Christie’s estimates it will sell for between $30,000 and $40,000.
• Estimating the value of a celebrity’s car is dicey, especially when it comes to Sinatra – who since his death has been at the center of a nostalgia boom. Prices can soar way beyond the realistic value of a vehicl
