Cyberpunk 2077 Reveals New Vehicle With Strong Mad Max Vibes
We're not sure yet whether it will take us to Valhalla, but this new car in Cyberpunk 2077 would feel right at home in the Mad Max series.
From the amazing cinematic trailer for the game at E3 2018, we already knew that Cyberpunk 2077 was going to go big on creating a big, dense world full of places to discover and incredible technology to witness. Cars and vehicles are definitely on that list judging from the sweet rides that the player will have at their disposal, with Cyberpunk‘s CD Projekt Red revealing a new vehicle that happens to be inspired by another franchise with an affinity for fast, adrenaline-powered cars.
On the game’s official Twitter account, developer CD Projekt Red shared a quick glimpse at a new vehicle in Cyberpunk 2077 called the Reaver, which is “a custom-built Wraith gang vehicle based on Quadra Type-66 car.” According to the tweet, the vehicle boasts near 1000 horsepower, and it’s got plenty of good looks to spare.
Of course, judging by the tweet, the vehicle is also seemingly meant to be a nod to the V8 Interceptor (aka the “Pursuit Special”) driven by Max Rockatansky in the Mad Max films. With this week marking the fifth anniversary of the release of Mad Max: Fury Road, it definitely seems like as good a time as any to reveal a new ride for players to enjoy.

Recent news on Cyberpunk 2077 has been relatively quiet in the past few months, with the game getting delayed to September from its originally-planned release in April. However, CD Projekt Red recently announced that we’ll get to see more from the game next month with a special presentation dedicated to Cyberpunk during Summer Games Fest on June 11. In the meantime, there are plenty of fan creations based on the game that you can enjoy, such as an incredible fan-made teaser trailer, or you can put a pre-order in for the upcoming Cyberpunk Funko Pop figurines. You can also start looking into the game’s deep lore and backstory with an Instagram mosaic that details some of the game’s factions and gangs.
Cyberpunk 2077 will release for PS4, Xbox One, Google Stadia, and PC on September 17, 2020. The game will also support Smart Delivery on Xbox Series X when the system launches later this year.
