How to get Quadra Sport R-7 Charon in Cyberpunk 2077


Nothing says “street kid” more than the Cyberpunk 2077 Quadra Sport R-7 Charon. This muscle car has a unique feature that turns the hood into holographic flames once you reach a certain speed. This custom model can be all yours, but you have to be careful because it’s easy to overlook.

In this guide, I will show you how to get the Quadra Sport R-7 “Charon” in Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty as one of your vehicles.

How to unlock the Quadra Sport R-7 “Charon” car

Your only chance to get the Quadra Sport R-7 Charon is in the “I’ve Seen Your Face Before” mission. In it, you will be asked to hack the car; However, before doing so you must Listen to the conversation of the people inside three times.. This will unlock the secret “Moving Heat” gig which will reward you with the Quadra Sport R-7 “Charon” upon completion.

The quest “I’ve Seen Your Face Before” is one of the main quests in the Phantom Liberty DLC. It’s your only chance to get the “Moving Heat” concert before it disappears forever. Needless to say, you can’t get the Quadra Sport R-7 Charon unless you have the Phantom Liberty DLC.

TO Complete “Heat in Motion” secret mission, you would have to work with Ashlay. Once you receive Ashlay’s call, you will be directed to a facility to eliminate enemies there and track a vehicle. Upon arriving at the facility, take the elevator to the starting room while maintaining an undetected state. This room houses three chambers and five guards.

Use quick tricks to disable cameras and identify guard positions. I used a forklift to get the attention of the guard near the shutter. Just be sure to use things around to divert the attention of the other guards on the right side of the lower level. This strategy allowed me to eliminate each of them discreetly without setting off any alarms.

A truck will stop and your goal is to climb into the container at the back and get through the checkpoint. Continue until you reach the parking lot where you will find the Quadra Sport R-7 “Charon”. Scan the room and disable the cameras. Please be patient as there will be other cars entering and exiting the parking lot.

From your hidden location inside the container, carefully shoot the head and use a silenced weapon. Be thorough because if a patrolling guard discovers a body, you’ll have to quickly reload a save. Once you take out the guards, hop into the Quadra Sport R-7 “Charon” and wipe the data. Drive with caution and attention.

As you exit the garage, a guard will stop you. Wait for Ashlay to do something surprisingly useful by interfering with his scanner. Once this is done, you are free to go. Exit the facility without causing any accidents and Charon will become part of his vehicle collection.

The Quadra Sport R-7 Charon is not that different from its 580 variant. Both are fast, capable and intended to be driven by muscle car lovers. The only difference is that the Charon variant can change its hood decals once it reaches a high enough speed. Instead of yellow stripes, the hood will turn into holographic flames, as if the car were on fire.

Can you get Quadra Sport R-7 Charon without doing the Moving Heat mission?

Unfortunately no, you must complete the Moving Heat mission to obtain the Quadra Sport R-7 Charon vehicle. If you miss the conversation in I’ve Seen Your Face Before, there is no longer a way to get this vehicle.

How to fix Quadra Sport R-7 Charon not generating NPC or traffic

If you’ve encountered a strange bug that prevents NPCs and traffic from spawning in Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty after obtaining the Quadra Sport R-7 Charon, there’s a bug in the game that’s probably causing it. In this guide, we’ll explore some potential solutions to get people back on the streets:

  1. Transfer game files to SSD:
    If you are still playing on HDD, this may be the reason why NPCs do not appear when you get the Quadra Sport R-7 “Charon”. Players who encounter this problem are said to be playing on HDD. A solid state drive is faster and is not necessary since the Phantom Liberty update. Fortunately, Steam and GOG allow you to easily transfer game files to a different drive without having to download the game again.
  2. Return to a previous save:
    Another option to get NPCs back on the streets is to reload a previous save before getting the Quadra Sport R-7 Charon. It’s not the best option if you’ve progressed a lot in the game since then, but if you notice that NPCs have returned, then this is the solution you’re looking for.
  3. Wait for a game patch:
    If all else fails, you’ll need to take a more patient approach. CD Projekt Red is confirmed to still support Cyberpunk 2077, so you’ll have to wait for the next fix.
