• The Quadra Turbo R V Tech from Cyberpunk 2077 transitions to reality This epic project spans nearly 2 years, but is coming along nicely, as its creator aims for an absolute copy of the in-game version of the car
  • The basis for the Quadra V Tech is a Maza RX-8 The initial plan was to use a custom tube chassis, but later it was decided to use the Japanese sports car as a donor. Everything except the engine and gearbox eventually went out
  • A model of the body was created from foam plastic Then, with the help of a CNC machine, the body panels were accurately recreated in fiberglass, before eventually making it on to the much smaller Mazda RX-8 skeleton
  • By far, the most complex aspect of the Quadra V Tech build is the doors The host of Burning Wrenches spent signifficant amount of time making sure the doors open like in the game. Christian von Koenigsegg could be impressed
  • The interior is starting to take shape Like the dashboard, the seats are also starting to take shape. Two acurate models of the in-game seats were created from foam palstic, epoxy resin, and aluminum layer
  • When the project is finally inished, the Quadra V Tech should look something like this The build already looks strikingly close to what we see in the Cyberpunk 2077 game and once it's complete it will be a real event on the road
  • Despite the game taking place in a dystopian future, many of the cars are insired by all-time clasiscs The Quadra V Tech seems to be a mix of Nissan 300ZX (Z31), Ferrari Testarossa, and other iconic sports cars of the 1980s
  • Swipe u pfor more details on the Quadra Turbo R V Tech Burning Wrenches has other projects, among which a Tesla Cybertruck build, but we think this is the top of the cherry. The Quadra V Tech may also end up being one of the most replicated video game cars

The Quadra Turbo R V-Tech from Cyberpunk 2077 is coming to life in an ambitious project

Cyberpunk 2077 came out in December 2020 and quickly got a lot of flak for its numerous bugs and broken promises. Be it as it may, the game offered a very unique perspective on what cars would look like in the dystopian future. But for some, playing the game isn’t enough, which is exactly what we see on the YouTube channel Burning Wrenches, where the host has an affinity for fabricating stuff. One of its creations is a real-life replica of the Quadra V-Tech, featured in the game.

There’s a lot of interesting projects on Burning Wrenches, among which a homemade Tesla Cybertruck replica, a Cyberquad, and more. But the most ambitious and crazy project of them all is the Cyberpunk 2077 Quadra Turbo R V-Tech. In case you don’t know, this is the meaner version of one of Cyberpunk’s performance cars. It’s the car with the weird sliding doors that Jackie – the main protagonist’s sidekick – lets the player drive.

The YouTuber started recording the project in March 2020. At the time of writing this article, there are 15 episodes on it.

The fabricator had to learn how to work with several programs as well as to build an NC (numerical control) machine in order to create accurate models of the body panels, which are later replicated out of fiberglass.

The NC machine worked according to a 3D model, made by enthusiasts, since the game developers refused to provide data, due to content confidentiality.

The YouTuber and fabricator had a brilliant idea about the doors of the Quadra, which is actually based on a Mazda RX-8. He decided to go with construction similar to that of a suspension control arm. The system utilizes an electric motor with multiple gears and two pistons that, when actuated, push the door outwards, allowing it to slide back towards the rear. Even Christian von Koenigsegg might be impressed.

The video below is part 13 and does not show the final version of the door mechanism (that happens in part 15). The end version features four guides per door, a shock absorber, and an electric motor with eight gears each. Even Christian von Koenigsegg might be impressed.

The project is still far from being complete and the interior seems to be next on the list. Like the exterior, the interior will become as close as possible to the Quadra Turbo R V-Tech in the game. As with the body of the car, foam plastic is used in order to cut the different seat sections by layers, before being covered with epoxy resin and an aluminum layer. After covering the aluminum model with a separating wax, gel coat and fiberglass matt are added. The foam is then removed from the rough matrix and, after some refining, is ready for a test.

After nearly two years, the project is making good progress. In part 15 of the series, we see that the Mazda RX-8 dashboard is completely replaced by a molding resembling that of the in-game vehicle. At this point, it’s not certain whether the project will get a different engine, as that usually happens early on. Who knows, maybe an electric conversion might happen at some point. Regardless, this real-life replica of the Quadra Turbo R V-Tech is a nice distraction from all the vapid, vaguely-inspired movie car replicas we are tired of seeing (I’m not saying they are all bad). Regardless, this is a project worth following the development of and it would definitely be an event when it hits the public roads.

Born in 1992, I come from a family of motoring enthusiasts. My passion for cars was awoken at the age of six, when I saw a Lamborghini Diablo SV in a magazine. After high school I earned a master’s degree in marketing and a Master of Arts in Media and Communications. Over the years, I’ve practiced and become skilled in precision driving and to date have test driven more than 250 cars across the globe. Over the years, I’ve picked up basic mechanical knowledge and have even taken part in the restoration of a 1964 Jaguar E-Type and an Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint. Lately, I’ve taken a fancy to automotive photography, and while modern cars are my primary passion, I also have a love for Asian Martial Arts, swimming, war history, craft beer, historical weapons, and car restoration. In time, I plan my own classic car restoration and hope to earn my racing certificate, after which I expect to establish my own racing team.  Read full bio
