Cyberpunk 2077 lets players take a joyride through Night City in 54 different vehicles that range from scrapped-together dune buggies to Bugatti Veyron-lookalikes. While Cyberpunk‘s world is better explored on-foot because of its many interiors and hidden Easter eggs, weaving through Night City’s densely packed roadways in different rides can still be incredibly satisfying. Many of these vehicles are quite pricey, but there are plenty of free cars and bikes in Cyberpunk 2077.
Much like the Grand Theft Auto series, players can steal any vehicle in Cyberpunk, so long as they have a high enough level in the Technical Ability attribute. V will also get dozens of offers to buy all sorts of cars during the game’s campaign, but trying to purchase all of them will cost players well over one million eddies.
Players can’t store stolen vehicles in V’s garage, which means they’ll never be able to summon them using V’s phone. Luckily, there are plenty of opportunities to score free, permanent rides throughout Cyberpunk 2077. Some are guaranteed, while others depend on getting V to say the right thing at the right time. Here are all of the automobile freebies available in Cyberpunk 2077.
[Warning: The following contains SPOILERS for Cyberpunk 2077‘s main story and side quests.]
Every Free Car & Bike Location in Cyberpunk 2077
Once players get access to their first car, they can summon it at any point on the map, much like how GTA Online players request their personal vehicles. However, it is worth pointing out that summoning a vehicle in Cyberpunk 2077 does not work for stolen vehicles. Instead, these cars are tucked away in the player’s personal garage, which they can access at any time.
Players can change their default vehicle in Cyberpunk 2077 from their garage. They can simply choose the vehicle they want to use regularly and summon it whenever they are in need of transport. Likewise, players can call on cars and bikes in Cyberpunk 2077 once they have set it as their default car.
Cyberpunk 2077 Free Cars: Hella EC-D I360
Gamers will receive their first free ride almost immediately after the first few main story missions. The Hella isn’t anything special, but it’ll get V where they need to go early in Cyberpunk 2077. Unfortunately, an accident will temporarily total V’s first car at that start of Act 2, and players will need to wait for it to get repaired. That’s the perfect time to hunt for other vehicles.
Cyberpunk 2077 Free Cars: Jackie’s Arch
V will also inherit Jackie Welles’ motorcycle at the start of Act 2 through the quest “Heroes.” There are a few ways this mission can play out, but regardless of the choices players make, they’ll end up with a bike to call their own.
Cyberpunk 2077 Free Cars: Apollo Scorpion
V can pick up another free bike by completing the main story quest “Life During Wartime,” which sends players on a daring mission with supporting character Panam Palmer. Much like Jackie’s Arch, this is a guaranteed free vehicle, so there’s no need to worry about missing out on it.
Cyberpunk 2077 Free Cars: Delamain No. 21
This posh cab can only be acquired after V completes all seven “Epistrophy” missions, which require players to track down seven Delamain taxis that have gone rogue. After V finds all of the lost cabs, they can return to Delamain HQ and be given the “Don’t Lose Your Mind” mission, which will reward them the free car upon completion.
Cyberpunk 2077 Free Cars: Porsche 911 II (930) Turbo
One of the few real-life car models in Cyberpunk 2077 is up for grabs during the “Chippin’ In” mission, where V goes on a misadventure with Johnny Silverhand. At one point in the quest, players will need to decide if they want to kill or spare a character named Grayson. Anyone who wants to drive away in a brand-new Porsche in Cyberpunk 2077 will need to let Grayson live by selecting the following dialogue option: “[Put weapon away] Got lucky today.“
Cyberpunk 2077 Free Cars: Thornton Mackinaw Beast
Much like the Porsche, obtaining this absolute unit requires players to make certain dialogue choices. During the “The Beast In Me” side-job that becomes available after the “Double Life” main mission, V will receive a call from Claire – a bartender from Afterlife – who will introduce them to Night City’s underground racing scene. She wants to take revenge on the city’s top street racer, Sampson, and if players let her kill him, Claire will reward V with unique her truck.
Cyberpunk 2077 Free Cars: Quadra Type-66 “Cthulhu”
Alternatively, if players choose to let Sampson live, he’ll give V a call after the “The Beast In Me” mission is complete and offer them this blacked-out ride, free of charge. The Cthulhu would still be available for 76,000 eddies if players kill Sampson, but the Mackinaw Beast won’t be, since it’s a unique vehicle. So, if gamers want to collect every vehicle in Cyberpunk 2077, it’s best to kill Sampson and acquire Claire’s truck, then buy the Cthulhu themselves.
Cyberpunk 2077 Free Cars: Colby CX410 Butte
Players can find this modded pick-up sitting in the middle of an abandoned movie set in the outskirts of Night City. All V needs to do is take the wheel, and it’ll be permanently stored in their garage.
Cyberpunk 2077 Free Cars: Rayfield Caliburn
This Cyberpunk 2077 Batmobile-impersonator car would normally set players back more than 150,000 eddies, but it’s available for free in The Badlands. It can be looted after V completes the quest “Ghost Town” with Panam and attacks the desert hideout of the Raffen Shiv gang. The vehicle is found inside of a shipping container in the gang’s mineshaft headquarters, just north of the Sunset Motel.
Cyberpunk 2077 Free Cars: Villefort Alvarado “Vato”
To earn this six-wheeled ride, players will need to head to Heywood and complete the “Beat on the Brat: The Glen” quest by defeating El Ceaser in a fighting match. V’s opponent will wager the vehicle, and V needs to match that with 4,000 eddies, so trying to earn this car can cost players if they lose. But once El Ceaser is defeated, he’ll offer to give V his ride, as well as their money back.
Cyberpunk 2077 Free Cars: Quadra Turbo-R V-Tech
This is the vehicle V is riding in Cyberpunk 2077‘s trailers and ads, and players will need to play the waiting game before they’re eligible to earn it. The quest for the Quadra only becomes available three in-game days after the completion of the “Life’s Work” mission, found in Heywood. V will receive a call that gives them the “Sex on Wheels” gig, which will reward the sports car once finished.
Cyberpunk 2077 Free Cars: Thornton Galena GA40XT “Rattler”
Unlike the rest of the free vehicles, this hatchback is only available to players who chose Cyberpunk 2077‘s Nomad Lifepath at the start of the game. V will receive a message for the “These Boots Are Made For Walkin'” mission, leading them to recover the old car seen in the Nomad’s prologue sequence.
Cyberpunk 2077 Free Cars: Arch Nazare “Itsumade”
Finally, this rare bike is found by completing a puzzle associated with the secret gig called “The Highwayman,” found in the Rancho Coronado area. Players will need to walk behind the gun shop found at the most southeastern part of the region (indicated in the map above). From there, V can pick up the quest and begin solving the riddle to hunt down the bike. Gamers who are having difficulty solving the puzzle can consult the folks over at the Cyberpunk 2077 Reddit for a detailed walkthrough.
