The tarmac roads of Night City are decked with some dazzling cars that redefine the way one explores the open-world of Cyberpunk 2077. Many of them are inspired by real-world speedsters, crossovers between 80s-retro rides and futuristic modular concepts, with enough horsepower to leave everyone behind in the blur of the rear-view mirror. While others are functionally superior and are as reliable as they come.
Sure, one could always force one’s way into strangers’ rides and roam about. But if you want to call a car at a moment’s notice and feel like you own it, then the following are the ones to choose from. They are the fastest, most glorious vehicles in Cyberpunk 2077 to ride as you explore the world around you and traverse long distances in style.
1. Rayfield Caliburn
Starting with the most expensive ride you can get in the game, Rayfield Caliburn is well worth the price tag with its stunning design, modeled after Bugatti Chiron, and its searing fire-breathing engine. Driving the Caliburn is like operating a jet on the road due in no small part to its aerodynamic body. With a whopping 1660 HP, it is easily the best looking ride on any block. Named after the Sword in the Stone in King Arthur’s legend, this beast is definitely one that will crown one the king of the streets.
If you don’t want to shell out the exorbitant amount of 157,000 eddies, you can still possess this car by completing the quest “Hidden Gem” in Badlands.
Top Speed: 211 MPH
2. Porsche 911 Turbo
Any best cars list will remain incomplete without a Porsche, be it in 2020 or 2077. This is Johnny Silverhand’s custom vehicle and though it only has an HP of 296, it still is quite stylish and a popular choice amongst Porsche fans, especially when we consider the fact that it is the only real-world vehicle that’s part of the game.
You can get your hands on Porsche 911 Turbo by completing the side quest “Chippin’ In” and sparing Grayson who gives you the key to the shipping container.
Top Speed: 192 MPH
3. Quadra Type-66 “Cthulhu”
Rise and rise the Lovecraftian beast of deep time and unleash the monstrosity that is Quadra Type-66 “Cthulhu”. Easily amongst the most stylish cars that you can find in Night City, it is like a fast and powerful tank that can ram through traffic without coming apart. But the car can also be a little demanding, not one to stick to the road for a comfortable ride; only if you can drift your way around town will the true potential of this beast can be understood.
The car is unlocked once you eliminate all Cyberpsychos.
Top Speed: 185MPH
4. Chevillon Thrax
Ah, the imperious grandiosity that is this Rolls-Royace inspired vehicle of choice for the managerial class. Chevillion Thrax oozes an overbearing imperious elegance wherever it goes and is also one of the safest rides you can get in the game. Whether you’re rolling over landmines or find yourself bombarded with gunfire, its all-encompassing armor and bulletproof windows should keep you secure no matter where you are. It may be slow to accelerate, owing to all that armor weight, but once it gets going, its engine will muscle through streets at dizzying speeds.
This is the first vehicle that Padre offers you and can also be bought in Heywood for 17,000 eddies.
Top Speed: NA
5. Makagai Maimai
Lastly, there is this fun little vehicle that’s winning the hearts of many with the simplicity and convenience that it offers, mainly in terms of steering. This mini bubbly Japanese economy vehicle can zip past Night City‘s traffic in a jiffy, maneuvering between tight cramped spaces between cars, and parks effortless (if you care to park cars in games that is). Just don’t expect it to win any street races for you.
Top Speed: NA
2 Best Bikes in Cyberpunk 2077
Though it was supposed to be only an article strictly about cars, we just couldn’t help but include a couple of high-octane bikes that are both iconic and devilishly speedy. If you feel you’ve had enough of driving about under the hood and behind windscreens, maybe it’s time to get some wind on your face.
1. Arche Nazare
This hunk is inspired by a real world bike built by Keanu Reeves’ Company – Arch Motorcycles. Arche Nazare is not only a lofty bike for the rugged cowboys of the 21st century but also a way of life that goes beyond just numbers. Its roar is enough to shake your rusty cybernetic heart into gear, and one look will have you driving it off into the sunset, taking a few innocent bypassers with you.
There are a few ways you can get an Arch in the game. One is by completing the “Heroes” mission. A better, modded version can be unlocked if you can give Jackie some technical advice early in the game. Otherwise, there’s also a free Arch you get after completing “The Highwayman” quest. If you want to purchase it, you’ll have to have a Street Cred of 40. The three Arch versions may look different, but one spin will have you know that they’re birds of a feather.
2. Yaiba Kusanagi CT-3X
This babe is sleek, fast, and unapologetically sexy. The power of its engine is only matched by its wicked aerodynamic frame that helps it fly through Night City. It is the fasest bike in the game and a favorite amongst gang members. You’ll have to reach Street Cred 12 and get a call telling you that the Kusanagi is for sale. This will trigger a new job for you in the Rides tab. Once you purchase the bike, you should be able to summon it when you wish and ride around town blasting the soundtrack of Akira which has been the inspiration behind the bike.
