This is specifically a list of free cars and motorcycles that are made available or found as the game progresses and those that become the property of V without any charge. This will allow you to call them on demand and use without restrictions.

Free vehicles - starting tips
- The page contains some spoilers regarding quests and events that lead to unlocking free vehicles. We tried to avoid serious spoilers that could reveal important events of the story.
- You can learn more about vehicles on a separate page (Car - how to buy or steal?) that describes other ways of getting a vehicle. These techniques have drawbacks - buying vehicles is expensive, while stolen ones cannot be assigned to your garage, forcing you to steal additional ones as necessity arises.
Jackie's Tuned Arch
This is the Arch Nazare motorcycle, which was owned by Jackie in the initial part of the campaign. V will become its owner in the next phase of the game.
Quite important information is that you can unlock this motorcycle in one of two versions:
- If you use a special dialog option (available to characters with Technical Ability perk) when playing The Pickup. V will give Jackie advice on how to upgrade the machine. This will unlock access to Tuned Arch version of the motorbike.
- If you have not used a special dialog option, you will be given a "normal" version of the motorcycle.]
V receives the bike at the beginning of Act 2, depending on how you have behaved at the end of Heroes storyline mission. This is about the choice we described on a separate page called Jackie - where to take him?
1) If you sent Jackie to Viktor, V will find a cardboard box at the door of his apartment that contains the keys to the motorbike.
2) If you have sent Jackie to Mama Welles, there will be a side mission (Heroes) to complete. The keys will be given to you at the end of the task (regardless of selected dialogue options).
Hella EC-D I360
This is the car that appears in the game from the very beginning, although at first, Jackie uses it during the course of story missions.
When you advance to Act 2 you will automatically unlock a side quest called Human Nature that involves picking up the vehicle from the underground garage under V's apartment block.
After you get down to the garage and get in the car, you will be rammed by an AI-controlled taxicab. You will temporarily lose access to the car - it will have to be repaired, but fortunately all repair costs will be covered by compensation.
You have to be patient, because it will take a long time before your car is repaired. After the repairs are completed you will receive a text message from Delamain confirming that the car is ready. From now on, you can summon it to your location.
This free vehicle is only available if the V has chosen Nomad as his life path. The main character uses this car during the Nomad prologue. V will lose access to this vehicle as a result of events that take place during the prologue. After you advance to Act 1, you will not find it on your vehicle list.
The opportunity to "regain" Galena appears in Act 2, specifically after completing Ghost Town story quest.
A new side quest should appear in V's log called - These Boots Are Made for Walkin'. It concerns reading the message from the GPS transmitter and searching the Badlands for a parked Galena. During the inspection of the car, Lana will appear, who will insist that the car is now her property. You can force her to waive her demands or give her 100 credits.
Do not choose the option of allowing Lana to keep the car, as it will not become the property of V again and you will not be able to use it further in the game.
Delamain No. 21
As a reminder, Delamain is the name of the artificial intelligence and at the same time autonomous cabs traveling in the Night City. You will learn more about this topic during a series of side quests involving rebellious AI. In tasks from the Delamain group, the hero will have to find faulty cabs and perform various actions to bring them back to the headquarters of the cab corporation.
To get a free car you have to complete the final artificial intelligence quest - Delamain: Don't Lose Your Mind. As a reminder, this quest is about visiting Delamain HQ and passing through a dangerous building that struggles with a computer virus attack.
The chosen ending does not play any role - you can choose any of the 3 available endings. No matter how you behave, one of the cabs will become available to you. From that moment on, it will become the property of V and can be driven personally.
This motorcycle appears for the first time during the Life During Wartime story mission which is a part of Act 2 of the story. V will use this machine during his journey through the Badlands with Panam. In order to permanently add the motorcycle to your garage you just need to complete the mission. It doesn't matter what decisions you make when you pass it.
Porsche 911 Turbo
This is the only licensed car in the game - Porsche 911 from Cyberpunk 2077 is visually based on the classic 930 generation of this model.
You can get the Porsche during the Chippin' In side quest and it will be exactly the same model that Silverhand owned in the past. During this mission, you need to infiltrate the docks and deal with Grayson who is onboard the ship. After defeating Grayson, you must spare his life and take the key from him. You can then lower one of the containers and use the key to open it. There will be a car inside.
The topic of obtaining this unique vehicle is described in more detail on a separate page called Porsche 911 - how to unlock?
Quadra Turbo-R V-Tech
It is a vehicle associated with one of the contracts from The Glen district - the place where the contract starts is marked on the picture above. Make sure that V is at a sufficiently high level of experience.
You can take on the task of stealing a car from the 6th Street gang garage. If you manage to steal the vehicle, return to Jake.
You have to wait a few days until you receive information about the location of the garage with the car. This will be a small side quest called Sex on Wheels which takes place in Rancho Coronado in Santo Domingo.
This mini-quest can evolve in two ways:
- If you have previously successfully delivered the car to Jake, just drive the Quadra Turbo-R V-Tech from your garage. No one will stop you from doing that.
- If you have not managed to get a car for Jake before, you must first take care of the surrounding opponents and then steal the vehicle.
In both cases the Quadra Turbo-R V-Tech will be permanently added to your machine list.
Quadra Type-66 Cthulhu
It's a vehicle associated with a series of side quests called The Beast in Me received from Claire Russell. As a reminder, these missions involve taking part in car races across the Night City.
You have to start by successfully completing 3 qualifying races - in each of them Claire and V have to reach the podium. The opportunity to get a free car comes after promotion to the final race. The Quadra Type-66 Cthulhu is a vehicle that will be used by Sampson in the final competition.
During the final race, you should give up finishing it, but go in pursuit of Sampson instead. You can only get a free vehicle if you can convince Claire not to kill Sampson. Unfortunately, this is only possible if you have behaved properly after the third qualifying race, i.e. you discouraged Claire from the idea of murdering Sampson. Additionally, choose the dialog options for calming Claire down. The saved Sampson will give you a free car as a thank you for sparing his life.
If you decide to finish the final race or if you can't convince Claire, Sampson will die and lose the opportunity to get a free car. However, this does not mean that you lose the opportunity to become the owner of this machine. Quadra Type-66 Cthulhu can be purchased for 76000 credits. Wait for a message from Regina Jones with a purchase offer (picture above).
You can find this vehicle while freely exploring the game world. This is one of several secret vehicles to unlock. You need to investigate a mine from a story mission called Ghost Town where you help Panam deal with Nash - it is located east of the Charter Hill and Rancho Coronado districts. Visit the mine only after completing the main task mentioned above. If you visit it too early, the secret vehicle will not appear.
The location of the southern entrance is shown in the pictures above. Mine also has a northern entrance and you can choose any of them.
You have to find a blue container with a car in one of the mine tunnels. It is located a short distance from the central cavern where Nash and his people used to stay. Get in the car to add it to your collection - Rayfield is one of the most expensive and fastest vehicles in the game. There is also another valuable loot in the container.
Thecontainer may not appear in the mine as a result of a bug. If you can't see the container anywhere, leave the mine and use the time acceleration option to scroll time to around midnight. Once again explore the mine and this time the container should appear.
Thorton Colby CX410 Butte
You can find this vehicle while freely exploring the game world. This is one of several secret vehicles to unlock. You need to explore the eastern part of Badlands, specifically the area around the fast travel point of the Desert Film Set. This is an area to the northeast of Rocky Ridge.
On an abandoned film set there are several different cars parked, but an icon appears only over the Colby. This means that this is the only vehicle that can be added to the V collection - you have to get into it. You can also use other machines from this location, but you can only steal them and they will disappear if you lose them or use fast travel.
Thorton Mackinaw Beast
"The Beast" is an armored pick-up belonging to Claire Russell that you meet during a series of side questsnamedThe Beast in Me. As a reminder, these missions involve taking part in car races across the Night City.
You have to start by successfully completing 3 qualifying races - in each of them Claire and V have to reach the podium. The opportunity to get a free car comes after promotion to the final race. You have to choose a different way of completing the quest, which involves chasing Sampson instead of trying to win the last race. You will receive a free car regardless of whether Sampson dies or not.
Villefort Alvarado V4FC 580
This quest is related to a series of side quests called Beat on the Brat which involve melee fistfights. The vehicle can be rewarded for defeating the Glen Champion, which is El Cesar. The location of the fight is shown in the picture - it is in Heywood. Make sure that V is at a sufficiently high level of experience because Cesar is a strong opponent.
After defeating Cesar, you will be faced with the choice of the prize (or lack of getting it). Choose a dialog option that involves selecting a car belonging to Cesar. If you choose another option, you won't get the free car.
Your prize is parked next to the arena and you can also summon it by phone.
Arch Nazare Itsumade
A motorcycle, to unlock it you need to take part in The Highwayman side task, which starts in Rancho Coronado. This is quite a unique quest because it involves finding further traces without having ready tags on the map.
You don't have to deal with the quest to the end, because you can start looking for the motorcycle earlier. As a fast travel destination, choose the All Foods Plant tag in the Northside area. According to its name, it is the All Foods factory that you visited in one of the initial storyline missions.
Go east of the factory, specifically to the area with containers shown in the picture.
Here you will find a closed garage shown in the picture.
Interact with the keypad to the right of the garage door. Do not press the default interaction button (Square on PS4/PS5), because you will receive a no-access message. Instead , press the keystroke buttons (X on PS4/PS5). Enter the combination 0214 ( you were able to determine it by investigating it in the aforementioned side quest).
The motorcycle is in the garage. Get on it so it becomes your property.
