Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2
The Diablo VT 6.0 appears in Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2 as a class 2 vehicle in the PC, Xbox, and GameCube releases; and as a class B vehicle in the PlayStation 2 release.
The standard variant is unlocked in the PC, Xbox, and GameCube releases upon accumulating 30,000 NFS points. It is unlocked in the PlayStation 2 release upon completing Ultimate Racer event 22 "Lamborghini Lap Knockout".
Due to its quick acceleration, it is an optimal choice for more competitive races. Coupled with its high top speed, the Diablo can easily maintain a fast straight-line performance, but these traits come at the expense of handling; a few cars such as the Ferrari F50 can overtake the Diablo through corners.
The NFS Edition is unlocked in the PC, Xbox, and GameCube releases upon accumulating 60,000 NFS points. It is unlocked in the PlayStation 2 release upon accumulating 2,000,000 NFS points.
The Pursuit variant is unlocked in the PC, Xbox, and GameCube releases upon accumulating 60,000 NFS points, but is not featured in the PlayStation 2 release.
- In the PlayStation 2 release, it can be unlocked by entering a button sequence at the main menu - Right, R2, Right, R2, R1, L1, R1, L1.
- In the intro to Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2, the Pursuit variant of the Diablo VT 6.0 appears, pursuing the Lamborghini Murciélago Coupé and Ferrari 360 Spider, despite not appearing as a usable vehicle in the PlayStation 2 release.
