Life is a Race... Win!— Promotional slogan

Chryslus[1] Cherry Bomb[2] was a sports car produced by Chryslus Motors prior to the Great War. This sports car appears in Fallout 4 and Fallout 76.


This pre-War beauty transcends the category of sports cars and even super cars. The Cherry Bomb is a single-seat, commercial-grade vehicle whose design is dictated by one desire: To break the sound barrier. Although street-legal versions would doubtlessly limit the maximum speed achieved, every aspect of the car is tuned towards that goal: A body designed to minimize air resistance without losing traction, sleek, aerodynamic surfaces, and a sleek, futuristic cockpit with a status display and a single joystick for steering.[3]

The Cherry Bomb is a relatively common sight in affluent regions on the Eastern seaboard: 216 in the Commonwealth,[4] 27 on Mount Desert Island,[5] and five in the ruins of Nuka-World (one of them a perfectly preserved car in Bradberton's private vault).[6] In impoverished areas such as Appalachia, the Cherry Bomb was much less common: Only 43 can be found in the riot-wracked region,[7] with another 16 wrecks scattered around tourist spots.[8]


Fallout 4
Fallout 76
  • Several derelict Cherry Bombs can be found around The Whitespring Resort in either red, blue or beige.
  • The race car bed purchasable from the Atomic Shop is based on the Cherry Bomb vehicle.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • The vehicle is stated to be capable of attaining a road speed of higher than 767 mph (1,234 km/h), though there is little doubt that the actually sold vehicles would be fitted with a speed governor, as such speeds would be incredibly dangerous if reached on regular roads.
  • The steering is similar to the Firebird 3, a concept car created in 1959. It also somewhat resembles the Firebird 3 with its low, lean design and smooth, aerodynamic shapes.
  • In Forza Motorsport 6, this car is called "Chryslus Rocket 69" and is drivable to those who played either Forza Motorsport 6 or Fallout 4 during the first quarter of 2016. For more information, see the Chryslus Rocket 69's Forza Motorsport Wiki article.
