Retro-futurism is the name of the game!

Now that 2020 has come and mercifully gone, it’s time we start fresh in 2021. On that end, we’d like to point you in the direction of what is arguably one of the best YouTube channels for car enthusiasts. Noted car designer Frank Stephenson’s channel on YouTube — it’s called “Frank Stephenson” — has been a goldmine of content.

In particular, his reaction videos to car designs have become some of our favorite videos to post on this site, and as we ring in the new year, we’re here to talk about his latest reaction video, this time to the vehicles in the Cyberpunk 2077 video game.

It’s been a wild few months for Frank Stephenson’s YouTube channel, hasn’t it? After barely having any subscribers, Stephenson’s channel subscription numbers shot up after he shared his opinions on the cars from the hit video game Grand Theft Auto. Now, he’s got more than 100,000 subscribers — 118,000 last we checked — and to celebrate the milestone of acquiring the Silver Play Button, Stephenson granted a request from his growing number of fans to critique the cars of another hit video game: Cyberpunk 2077.

It didn’t take long for Stephenson to dive deep into the car designs of the vehicles in Cyberpunk 2077, and, as you might expect, the man behind the designs of just about every McLaren model since the 2010s had a lot of things to say about the cars from the video game.

Not surprisingly, Stephenson talked about the 2058 Quadra Turbo-R V-Tech, the model he described as the hero car of the entire game and the heavy design influence to the iconic Ferrari Testarossa.

The designer also talked about the one-eyed Chevillon Thorax 388 Jefferson, the tiny Makigai MaiMai, and, of course, the Arch Nazare, which is one of the vehicles in the game that actually exists in the real world. The other one is the Porsche 911 Turbo, which Stephenson also has thoughts on.

We’re not going to spoil the entire episode because it’s definitely something that you should watch, especially if you’re a fan of Cyberpunk 2077. As always, Frank Stephenson delivered the goods.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More
