Cyberpunk 2077 Mod Lets You Keep Stolen Cars

One of the most disappointing discoveries in Cyberpunk 2077 is that you can only ever take other people's vehicles for short joyrides. There's no way to keep them for good as you can in other sandbox games, so you better make the most out of your "borrowed" ride until it despawns. However, a Cyberpunk fan has finally implemented a way to right this wrong.

Claim Vehicles, a mod from Nexus user DeepBlueFrog, does exactly what it says on the tin. And better yet, it even implements a lore-friendly explanation as to why V can grab any car they want. With Claim Vehicles installed, V is granted access to the NCPD's power to "legally appropriate" any citizen's wheels, transferring their car ID over to you permanently.

As explained in the mod's description, creator DeepBlueFrog sets out how the "Legal Appropriation and Impound ordinance of 2055" works. Basically, in the name of combatting Night City's sky-high crime rates, the NCPD was given the ability to claim ownership of "any vehicle they felt like at any given time." It doesn't matter if it was actually involved in a crime or not – if the cops want it, it's theirs. A lovely authoritarian nightmare that fits into Cyberpunk nicely.

If you cast your mind back to the start of the game, Viktor actually hooks V up to the NCPD's database. And now with this mod, that extends to their ability to nick any car they fancy.

Because of how the game despawns non-V vehicles, you won't always be able to save exact copies of what you steal. But according to DeepBlueFrog, it will be as close as possible to the model you want. So head down to the Afterlife car park and shop around – all the coolest wheels seem to be there.

Cyberpunk 2077 is available on PC via Steam and GOG. You can also pick it up on PlayStation, Xbox, and Google Stadia.
