While a lot of Cyberpunk 2077 players are already imagining how sweet life will be when the Phantom Liberty Expansion arrives and they can ditch their old flame, Keanu Reeves, for a fresh celebrity companion in Idris Elba, some are still hanging out in Night City while they wait. And what better way to spend that wait than by employing some real Fast and Furious vibes with this new mod that allows you to drive a Nissan Skyline through the technological metropolis?

The average day experienced by these veteran players can move at a pretty breakneck pace, given that they spend a lot of time shooting or quickhacking their way through cybernetically-enhanced foes. Even just to complete gigs or simply survive on the dangerous streets of CD Projekt Red’s urban jungle.

But if you’re the kind of choom who likes to augment the rugged mercenary aesthetic with a cool car that’ll ensure you turn heads whenever you pull up at The Afterlife, a new mod, which continues a recent trend of bringing killer retro rides to Night City, might be worth adding to your load order.

The mod in question is called ‘02' Nissan Skyline GT-R R34’ and is the work of modder ctxrlsec. Some of their previous projects have made Cyberpunk 2077 look a bit more like 2015’s Need For Speed reboot and brought the attractive hues of Californian sun to its lighting.

This time, however, they’ve decided to add the iconic Nissan Skyline GT-R R34 to the game as a standalone car that you can buy via DJ_Kovrik’s ‘Virtual Car Dealer’. You can use this awesome vehicle to outrun the futuristic cars that make up the rest of the game’s traffic.

Available in a wide range of colours and with a special off-road version, as well as its own unique scanner description that helps to make it fit in Cyberpunk’s world, this ride is another that’ll definitely help you stand out from the game’s street racing crowd. All without having to steal Johnny Silverhand’s style by taking his Porsche for a spin.

Ctxrlsec also seemingly has plans to add a version of the car with some custom modifications to the game via future updates to the mod. The modder asked in the mod’s posts section whether fellow players would prefer a real-world body kit or one inspired by Need For Speed Underground if this were to happen.

However, before you fire up your new Skyline, you’ll first have to grab psiberx’s ‘ArchiveXL’ and ‘TweakXL’, without which it might not start.

But regardless of whether you’re now re-enacting the race from the beginning of 2 Fast 2 Furious, be sure to follow us for more interesting Cyberpunk 2077 mods and info on the Phantom Liberty expansion. We've got plenty of other handy mod guides, including how to turn Night City into the Matrix, as well as how to stop NPCs from panicking unnecessarily.
