The Diablo Stallion (also simply known as the Diablo in GTA Advance) is a two-door gang car, based on the Stallion, featured in Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto Advance, and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories.

Overview

Design

The Diablo Stallion is essentially the gang car of the Diablos gang in GTA III, GTA Advance and GTA Liberty City Stories. Distinguishable by its black body with painted flames running across the bottom of the sides and a supercharger clearly visible on the top of the hood, the Diablo Stallion also is the only hardtop Stallion in the games it is featured in and has noticeably lower ground clearance. The GTA Advance rendition is only colored black, purple, or red with no visible painted flames.

While both GTA III and GTA Liberty City Stories feature conventional Stallions alongside the Diablo variant, GTA Advance does not.

Performance

The Diablo Stallion is an eight-cylinder, customized classic with tons of torque and high-end performance. The main drawback is that there were few to no modifications to the Stallion's suspension (despite a lowered ride height), meaning that although the car can go very fast, it doesn't corner well.

Trivia

  • A black Stallion with a flame paint job (similar to a Diablo Stallion) appears in Bully during Shop Class, although this Stallion does not have a hood-mounted supercharger.
  • King Courtney's spoken orders in the GTA III mission Gangcar Round-up incorrectly state that the Diablo gang car is an Infernus. The subtitles, however, call it a Stallion. The mission entails stealing one of their modified Stallions, as well as a Mafia Sentinel and a Yakuza Stinger, for planned attacks on these gangs.
  • The Diablo Stallion is very comparable to the Cuban Hermes driven by the Cubans from GTA Vice City and GTA Vice City Stories. The two cars have a similar paint job, as well as the fact that the two cars have the same engine sound and are both gang vehicles.
    • The major difference between the Cuban Hermes and the Diablo Stallion is that the Cuban Hermes has side exhausts that can spew out flames and the Diablo Stallion has its engine popping out of the hood.
