chronicled a few of them after the release, noting “tiny trees covering the floors of buildings, tanks falling from the sky and characters standing up, inexplicably pantless, while riding motorcycles.”

After this disastrous launch, the makers of Cyberpunk 2077 had to regroup. Their customers were not satisfied with these weird and distracting issues.

The artist said the car is based on the 1969 Ferrari 312 P. Like its inspiration, the angle from bumper to fender is so steep you could place a ball on a fin and watch it roll off the hood. Everything about it looks fast, from the sharp-edged rims to the shaved-down fins. It’s a sleek silver color with yellow accents—a creature primed to prowl.
The artist based the concept on a car from 1969 as a nod to the existing aesthetic of the game.

The result is a mesmerizing blend of past and future. You can totally see Keanu Reeves blazing off into the sunset in it.
