Description

Design

GTA IV

The Super Diamond is intended to resemble a Rolls-Royce Phantom, although the car appears to be less regal in construction, with various slight cosmetic changes, and features front wheels shifted slightly to the front. The car features interior similar to the Schafter's, but is covered by white leather and has no logo on steering wheel.

The Super Drop Diamond is a two-door convertible variant based on the Super Diamond.

GTA V

The Super Diamond has been given a minor facelift in GTA V.

Performance

GTA IV

When compared to the Super Drop Diamond, the attributes of the rear wheel drive Super Diamond are inferior but more realistic - crash deformation is average, and acceleration is only slightly above average, and handling is average - but it still performs better than it would in real life. The Super Diamond has a considerable top speed of 180 kmh (112 mph).

In terms of braking, the car lacks ABS, which makes braking and cornering difficult. Although, very rarely will the car be equipped with said ABS, however, finding one will be rather difficult to tell.

Trivia

  • The Super Diamond's hood ornament consists of a blocky ring affixed with a pair of wings, parodying the Spirit of Ecstasy (Flying Lady) that adorns current Rolls-Royce cars. The same hood ornament is also visible on the Super Drop Diamond.
  • The Super Diamond shares the same rim design as the Oracle. Coincidentally, BMW, which is parodied in game as the Oracle-producing Übermacht, is also the parent company of Rolls-Royce in real life, also to fact in the first stages of designing the Rolls-Royce Phantom, the shell of the BMW 750I was used as a design guide, so the Phantom is a larger, more luxurious BMW 7 Series.
  • The Super Diamond has no reversing lights. The same applies for the Super Drop Diamond.

Locations

TBOGT

  • On the roads of West Algonquin, around Golden Pier's golf club area.
  • Strangely, occasionally used in Drug Wars as vehicle containing drugs.
  • Spawn more often when the player is driving a Super Drop Diamond with a hardtop on the first time.
  • Tends to spawn after completion of the game.
  • May spawn in "wealthy" areas such as Rotterdam Hill.
