Cyberpunk 2077 is overflowing with great vehicles for the aspiring solo, but it’s up for debate just which can be considered Cyberpunk 2077’s best vehicle. From the ridiculously expensive, like the Rayfield Aerondight to, the impressively durable, such as the Thorton Mackinaw, there’s no shortage of premium rides to choose from. With so many options available, choosing the best of the best becomes an inordinately difficult task. Which vehicles will provide the best speed, durability, and style for cruising the streets of Night City?
Taking place in the hi-tech Night City, Cyberpunk 2077 follows V, a mercenary out to save themselves after a heist gone wrong leaves them with only a short time until their death. The size of the city itself and the dangerous missions players can undertake make vehicles disproportionately valuable items, allowing V to speed away from situations that go wrong and have a better shot at success when it comes to making deliveries or surviving high-speed encounters with Night City’s various gangs, corporations, and law enforcement. While Cyberpunk 2077’s best armor and weapons are important to getting the job done, vehicles often help players get there alive in the first place (and make it out again).

The best vehicles available in Cyberpunk 2077 combine class, speed, and durability. The mercenary life is a dangerous one, and if a ride can’t stop a hail of bullets during a job gone bad, it isn’t worth a player’s time. Getting to the jobs quickly is also a must, so any premium ride must have the premium horsepower to boot. Lastly, Night City doesn’t end in the streets. The Badlands outside Night City provide their own challenges that vehicles must be willing to contend with if V is going to run with the Nomads.
7. Cyberpunk 2077’s Best Service Is Found In The Delamain No. 21
Acquired at the end of the “Epistrophy” questline in Cyberpunk 2077, the Delamain No. 21 is the perfect next step after V’s default Hella Archer. Featuring an onboard Artificial Intelligence (that varies depending on the outcome of the quest “Don’t Lose Your Mind”), this car can hold a conversation as well as it can hold top speed (though it is still incapable of being one of Cyberpunk 2077’s flying cars). In terms of flashiness, it’s got a unique charm. It isn’t likely to wow anyone from the Afterlife, but with a price tag of zero eurodollars, this is one ride that’s worth picking up.
6. Ride Rough On Cyberpunk 2077’s Brennan Apollo “Scorpion”
Cars aren’t the only rides available to V. This motorcycle is acquired after the death of its previous owner during the “Life During Wartime” quest. Sporting Aldecaldos flair and rugged off-road wheels, this Cyberpunk 2077 motorcycle is perfect for navigating the Badlands just like Scorpion. Akin to the standard Brennan Apollo (Minus the “trunk” on the rear of the seat), this bike has been modified to be able to go off-road with little discomfort to the user.
5. Cyberpunk 2077’s Quadra Type-66 “Javelina” Dominates On The Road & Off
This Quadra Type-66 has been given a Nomad makeover to turn it from a street-tearing monster to an off-road legend, perfect for testing out Cyberpunk 2077’s PS5 Dualsense update. Once V reaches street-cred level 30 and has 73,000 Eurodollars to spare, the Javelina will be theirs after a quick text from Dakota in the Badlands. With a new paint job and armor, the Javelina was designed with the Badlands in mind.

Able to keep pace with its unmodified brethren, this ride is perfect for races in the Badlands or Downtown Night City. In the unavoidable Cyberpunk 2077 firefights, the crystal dome display means that the driver will be safe and secure even while the heaviest ordnance bounces off the exterior armor. This is a truly all-in-one ride.
4. The Yaiba Kusanagi CT-3X Is A Cyberpunk 2077 Icon On Wheels
Though the pool of motorcycles in Cyberpunk 2077 is limited compared to cars, this bike stands head-and-shoulders above its peers. In order to get their hands on this familiar-looking bike, V must attain a Street Cred of 12, and have at least 22,000 Eurodollars in the bank. In addition to ample trunk space to access V’s stash, the Kusanagi boasts better Cyberpunk 2077 vehicle handling and a familiar silhouette to manga and anime fans. The bike takes visual inspiration from the motorcycle featured prominently in Katsuhiro Otomo’s Akira. Its name is also a possible reference to Motoko Kusanagi, the protagonist of Masamune Shirow’s Ghost in the Shell. With a pedigree like this, this bike is a must for both speed demons and anime fans.
3. Cyberpunk 2077’s Porsche 911 II (930) Is Johnny Silverhand-Approved
Painted with livery from the rockerboy’s band Samurai, the Porsche 911 II (930) is Johnny Siverhand’s personal vehicle. After completing the Cyberpunk 2077 quest “Chippin’ In”, Johnny officially gifts it to V (seeing as he has no body with which to drive it anymore). Once acquired, V will be able to take advantage of its compact frame, high top speed, and unbeatable maneuverability. For a century-old car, it can cruise with the best of them in 2077. Plus, this car being a quest reward means that the lack of in-game Cyberpunk 2077 virtual car dealers won’t impact being able to get it as soon as possible.
2. The Poster Car For Cyberpunk 2077 Is The Quadra Turbo-R V-Tech
If any car in Cyberpunk 2077 could claim to be V’s “signature” ride, it’s the Quadra Turbo-R V-Tech. This car is available (for free) after completing the quest “Gig: Life’s Work” and the following “Sex on Wheels”. It boasts a blistering top speed, sleek black-and-gold design, and even has V’s bulldog ornament on the dash when viewed from the driver’s seat.

For being featured prominently in both in-game and real-life promotional material, the car doesn’t disappoint. It puts some of the others on this list to shame and can compete with the best of the best. This is a car that a Night City Legend would drive.
1. The Rayfield Caliburn Is An Excalibur-Level Cyberpunk 2077 Ride
Boasting a crystal dome viewscreen, all-wheel drive, and a fastest-in-game top speed of over 200 mph, the Rayfield Caliburn rules the roost as Cyberpunk 2077’s best car. Given the high standing of this king among vehicles, it requires a hefty street-cred balance (40) and eurodollar balance (157,000) before Dino Dinovic will even text the offer to sell one to V. Or, once the mission “Ghost Town” is complete, V can return to the mineshaft where they fought Nash and pick one up for free, courtesy of Night City’s version of Batman, Murk Man.
When it comes to rides in Night City, speed and durability are key. There’s one more factor that may very well surpass both, and that’s style. Every car on this list boasts a style all its own, and each would make a great addition to the fleet of any Cyberpunk 2077 player.
