Disambig This article is about the Type-66 "Cthulhu". For other variants, see Quadra Type-66.

The "Cthulhu" is a modified version of the Type-66, a vehicle manufactured by Quadra in Cyberpunk 2077.

Overview[]

The Cthulhu is a customized Type-66 that was owned by the corporate and street racer Peter Sampson.

Sampson used the car during the Night City annual death races in which his rival Dean Russell - and Claire's husband - died. The following year, Peter raced with Cthulhu as the champion in the final race. Depending on the choices made during the event, he will either finish the race safely or crash the car, which will be then engulfed in flames. Nevertheless, the Cthulhu is eventually repaired and it's either given to V for free,[1] or is sold by Regina Jones.[2]

Database Entry[]

Quadra Type-66 "Cthulhu"

QUADRA TYPE-66 "CTHULHU"

The Quadra Type-66 was built to race. And when you optimally tune it, add some extra juice, swap out the firmware for soft... that's when you unleash a real horror from your worst nightmares onto the streets.[2]

Acquisition[]

The Cthulhu can be obtained by two different ways depending on the choices made during The Beast In Me quest chain.


If V finishes the race or if Sampson is killed after V chases him:

After a few days, Muamar Reyes will send V a message saying he is selling the car. It then can be acquired from the AUTOFIXER netpage for €$67,000.


If Sampson survives after V chases him:

It is obtained for free after receiving a message from Sampson a few days later. Sampson thanks V for convincing Claire to spare his life. See "The Beast in Me" below for more details.

The Beast in Me[]

To obtain the Cthulhu for free, V has to proceed carefully at certain moments in The Beast in Me: Santo Domingo and The Beast in Me: The Big Race. After qualifying for the final race at the end of the former job, Claire will ask to speak to V about her husband Dean. Make sure to select the following dialogue options when they appear:

  1. "You sure it was murder?"
  2. "Sorry, Claire, but I can't help."
  3. "Okay, I'll still drive. But only to win."

During the final race, keep pace with Sampson's car. Note that choosing to race with Claire's car instead of one V owns is sufficient for this route. At a specific point along the highway, Sampson's car will become too damaged and he will pull off the course. Follow him (this will forfeit the race) until he crashes, then get out of the car with Claire to confront him. Make sure to trigger each of the limited-time dialogue choices that appear:

  1. "What's he mean?"
  2. "Wait, wanna hear this."
  3. "Claire, that true?"
  4. "Yeah. Let him go."

If all requirements were met, Claire will be persuaded to spare Sampson and drive back to her garage. She will also give her car - Beast - to V since she no longer wants to race. After the quest is completed, Claire will send V a follow up text within a day, and this will be followed by a separate text from Sampson 7-10 days later informing V that they now own the fully-repaired Cthulhu.

Notes[]

  • The trunk does not open, but the Stash can be accessed.
  • Prior to Patch 2.0 it cost €$76,000.
  • Prior to the introduction of AUTOFIXER, Regina Jones sold the car via a text message: "Hey, so the "Cthulhu" has just emerged from the abyss. Sounds scary, right? Seriously though - car's out of this fucking world. Barely even touch the gas and the next thing you know you're burning rubber and your eyes are tearing up. But something tells me if anyone can handle this beast, it's you. Buy it and don't look back."

Trivia[]

  • The car is named after the fictional entity Cthulhu, created by H.P. Lovecraft.
  • One of the file names for this car is "dominic_truck." Considering this name, the type of car, its color, and bodywork; it is likely the "Cthulhu" is inspired by the black muscle cars driven by Dominic Toretto of the Fast & Furious franchise.
