The Corvega Atomic V-8 is a vehicle found throughout the wastelands of the former United States.

Background[edit | edit source]

A high-performance model of the Corvega manufactured by Chryslus Motors, the Atomic V-8 was a rugged, dependable sedan that was one of the most popular models, available across the United States.[1]

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

The Atomic V-8 is commonly identified by its distinctive stacked headlights, trapezoid-shaped grille, and tailfins. The car is powered by a massive nuclear reactor fitted in the rear and was manufactured as a two-door and four-door car in a variety of colors. A second two-door version with a bubble top and more streamlined appearance is advertised, but is not seen around the wasteland, suggesting it was either brand-new or unpopular. All Corvegas of this type only have door handles on the driver side. The interior commonly was appointed in red, especially in the second-generation models that entered the market before the Great War.[2] Some models were capable of towing trailers and boats.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Many times ruined automobiles such as the Corvega are found with suitcases in the back, despite the area being used to mount a nuclear reactor.
  • Some Corvegas still have an intact reactor and can be destroyed. This is distinguished by their little damaged paint job, all doors in the car. When the car is damaged a certain amount a small explosion can be heard and fire in the car, this shows as a warning that the car is about to explode.

Appearances[edit | edit source]

The Corvega Atomic V-8 appears in Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas, Fallout 4, and Fallout 76.
