We were able to get the location of the chest by getting two stars twice in our Bugatti EB110, so don't worry too much about tuning up one of your Retro Supercars.

The area will pop into your map and guide you to the north part of the Teotihuacan drag strip. You'll find the chest at the north-most tip of the drag strip, just in front of the large pyramid.
