Games

Need for Speed III: Hot Pursuit

The Diablo SV appears in Need for Speed III: Hot Pursuit as both a class A racer and cop vehicle. The Pursuit Diablo is unlocked upon arresting all opponents in Hot Pursuit Mode on every race course including Empire City.

The Diablo SV outperforms most of its rivals because of its superior acceleration and top speed. It does lack sufficient performance in corners due to its handling and braking capabilities although it is responsive at high speeds.

Pursuit

The Pursuit variant of the Diablo differs between releases. The PlayStation release features an unplayable interceptor adorned with a special gold, white, and black livery with amber and blue emergency lights that appears when the skill level is set to expert.

The PC release features it as a playable unit with a traditional black and white livery alongside traditional red and blue emergency lights. It can be unlocked by earning the "Top Cop" badges for all of the courses.

Need for Speed: High Stakes

The Diablo SV appears in Need for Speed: High Stakes as a class AA racer, and a cop vehicle with no performance changes compared to its appearance in Need for Speed III: Hot Pursuit.

It is slower than the Ferrari F50 which is able to accelerate faster and get to a higher top speed but can be less controllable in corners than the SV. The SV has the better handling but sometimes tends to understeer in corners.

It is available in the career mode for $200,000. In the PlayStation release, it does not have the optional SV logo on both sides of the car.

Pursuit

The Pursuit variants differ between releases. The PC release features all variants with the same lightbar, and the PlayStation release features an individual lightbar for each variant.

All Pursuit variants in the PlayStation release are unlocked by arresting 10 speeders with either the Pursuit Corvette C5 or any Pursuit variant of the Porsche 911 Turbo (993). Arresting 10 speeders with the Pursuit Diablo SV will unlock the Police Helicopter, which is only available in test drive mode.

The Australian Pursuit Diablo SV is also unlocked for releases outside of Australia after entering the cheat code - "NFSPD", but in the Australian release it is unlocked alongside either the Pursuit HSV GTS VT or the Australian Pursuit M5.

The Pursuit variants in the PC release are unlocked upon earning Top Cop and Most Wanted in two of the three Hot Pursuit modes for all regular courses. The Australian police livery replaces the North America livery in the Australia and New Zealand PC releases.

Need for Speed: World

The Diablo SV was made available in Need for Speed: World on April 5, 2012 as a tier 2 car following the 6th Spot the Devs event. Since August 22, 2012, it has been featured as a C class vehicle.

It has powerful acceleration and a top speed of 180 mph (289 km/h) although traction is insufficient.

Combined with direct steering, it requires little braking effort in hairpin turns and can achieve high corner entry speeds, similar to that of the BMW M3 Sport Evolution. Players get an above average increase of speed with nitrous applied.

The racer vehicle and SCPD unit is unlocked upon purchase of the Lamborghini Untamed pack.

It is fairly agile with a potent nitrous boost and decent top speed. Its handling is very manageable, being able to drift in tight corners and gain speed after exiting. It is best utilised for racing, as its durability is somewhat lacking.

It performs adequately as a Sports class car, with acceleration and top speed similar to that of the Gallardo, however, it suffers by being one of the worst performing cars off-road and the need to be driven with caution through corners due to its snappy oversteer.
