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.

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


If you’re the kind of player who needs a rapid ride to convey you between the isolated areas you’ve been busy exploring and the date at a love interest’s apartment that you’ve accidentally ended up late for, a couple of new mods might be worth adding to your load order.

Do you fancy conquering Cyberpunk 2077’s street racing scene in one of these highly-tuned racers?

The first of the mods in question is called ‘1991 BMW E30 M3 (standalone car)’ and is seemingly the work of a group of modders led by ErebusEquity. Some of their previous projects have given Night City’s cops some fresh riot gear and made Johnny Silverhand look a bit more like his tabletop game inspiration.

This time, with the help of a crew of other modders including Psiberx and NexusGuy999, they’ve managed to bring an iconic German saloon used by drafters and touring car racers across the world during the 1990s to Night City as a standalone ride accessible via DjKovrik’s ‘Virtual Car Dealer’.


Available in a wide range of colours and featuring custom suspension and engine profiles made by modder Erok, in addition to a fully-functional interior and stash, you’ll struggle to find a better retro motor in which to drift your way from the winding roads of North Oak to the sprawling avenues of Downtown.

That is, unless you’ve got a soft spot for Japanese autos, in which case, a second recently released mod, ctxrlsec’s ‘92' NSX Rocket Bunny (Standalone Car Add-on)’, might be more your style.

Featuring a Honda NSX outfitted with a killer bodykit, this car is also available via the virtual dealer and seemingly has a few more teething issues and minor bugs than the beemer, but should still be suitable for burning some rubber in.

Though, before grabbing the keys to either, you’ll first have to grab psiberx’s ‘ArchiveXL’ and ‘TweakXL’, with ErebusEquity’s mod also requiring WopsS’ ‘RED4ext’, jac3km4‘s ‘redscript’ and Erok’s ‘Car Modification Shop’.
