Cyberpunk 2077 Teases The Mad-Max Inspired Car – The Reaver
The 1000 Hp MadMax beast
CD Projekt RED revealed the Reaver, a custom-built wraith vehicle that you can drive around in Cyberpunk 2077. This is a 1000 Hp car built atop a Quadra Type 66 to commemorate the 5th year anniversary of the blockbuster movie, MadMax Fury Road. This film has played a massively influential role in the gaming industry purely due to its post-apocalyptic punk-styled theme and maddening car designs.
Can we drive the Reaver in Cyberpunk 2077?
Yes, you can drive the reaver in Cyberpunk 2077. At first, people were in doubt whether we would be getting to drive this beast around in the game or was it just teased to pay homage to the movie. Incidentally, Cyberpunk 2077 posted on its twitter page, a message alongside the video showcasing the Reaver.

It said that we can drive this 1000 Hp eternal shiny beast in the game. When you look closely, The Reaver not only pays homage to MadMax styled cars, it itself is a spitting image of the V8 Interceptor, what they call as the Pursuit Special in the film.
Cyberpunk 2077 movie references
This is not the first time Cyberpunk 2077 is taking inspiration from movies, in June last year the game dropped a bomb on its fans. CD Projekt RED hinted the first look of the megamovie star, Keanu Reeves in Cyberpunk 2077. He plays a non-playable character in the game known as Johny Silverhand. This news hit the gamers and Reeve fans by storm and since then people have been eager for the game’s release.
Apart from this, Cyberpunk 2077 draws inspiration from the 1982 film Blade Runner, the manga and anime Ghost in the Shell, and video games like Deus X and System Shock. The game initially had a release in April 2020, but unfortunately got delayed. The fans are hoping that the game finally releases on the next release date, ie. 17 September 2020.
