What was roach in The Witcher 3 for Geralt von Riva is the cars in Cyberpunk 2077 for protagonist V. We move with them stylized bodies through Night City, but not only there. We also have a sleek PS monster under our bums in the surrounding badlands.
And what a thing! Developer CD Projekt Red unveiled on Twitter new vehiclethat takes us from A to B in the wasteland:
"Reaver" – custom-built wraith gang vehicle based on Quadra Type-66 car. With its near 1000 horsepower, you will ride eternal, shiny and chrome.

As the developers explain, the car is called "Reaver" and is a vehicle of the Wraith gang. Under the hood, »almost 1,000 HP« are waiting for your daring gas foot. The reaver is based on the well-known Quadra Type-66 model, which was presented in the videos and artwork:
Cyberpunk 2077: gameplay and cinematic trailer
An ode to Mad Max
Inspiration »Mad Max«: CD Projekt added the hashtag #MadMaxFuryRoad to the tweet about the new car in Cyberpunk 2077. The film, a successor to the legendary “Mad Max” series, celebrated its four-year anniversary on May 14. The Polish developer apparently was inspired by this film, which also deals with a barren landscape and wildly souped up bodies.
Cars are so important in Mad Max: Vehicles of all shapes and colors play an important role in the dystopian action films. Moreover, after the apocalypse, practically everything seems to be about cars for the rival gangs. No wonder, since they are the only way to quickly roam the wasteland.
These are cars in Cyberpunk 2077: In Cyberpunk 2077, we mainly use our vehicle in the night city. Here we move through the streets and get quickly from one mission to the next. However, the streets are not everywhere, as is the case in GTA 5. In order to organize races, the residents therefore switch to the wasteland.
