Much like the Super Diamond, the 'Drop' version features a huge front-mounted V12 engine driving the rear wheels, but this engine has a higher power/torque output to compensate for the Drop's increased weight and aerodynamic hindrances which naturally occur when turning a hardtop car into a convertible.

The Enus Super Drop Diamond is an ultra-high luxury convertible featured in The Ballad of Gay Tony.

DesignEdit

The Super Drop Diamond appears to be based on the 2007-present Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupé.

It is a two-door cabriolet version of the Super Diamond, having largely the same general form. The Super Drop Diamond is however marginally longer than the hardtop, necessitated by the car retaining all four seats (the front seats are roomier than those of the Super Diamond), though lamentably the car can only seat two passengers in-game due to the lack of third and fourth door. The premium interior is identical to its four-door counterpart, which in turn is very similar to that of the Benefactor Schafter.

The car spawns exclusively with a golden chrome finish, complimenting which is a gloss beige bonnet and an optional black vinyl roof, the latter often being deployed when raining or at night. The doors open in a conventional manner, in contrast to the real Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupé's suicide-style doors (opened to rear) on which the Super Drop Diamond is based.

PerformanceEdit

Much like the Super Diamond, the 'Drop' version features a huge front-mounted V12 engine driving the rear wheels, but this engine has a higher power/torque output to compensate for the Drop's increased weight and aerodynamic hindrances which naturally occur when turning a hardtop car into a convertible.

This vehicle is exceedingly rapid and surprisingly agile for a vehicle of these dimensions, feeling impossibly superior in terms of performance to most other cars in GTA IV. The top speed and acceleration performance is identical to the Super Diamond, with a 0-60mph time of 4.4 seconds and an astronomical top speed of 221 mph. The exceptionally wide and grippy tyres result in this leviathan being able to out-manoeuvre even the sportiest of cars.

Notable OwnersEdit

  • Yusuf Amir is well known for using the Super Drop Diamond as his primary land vehicle and method of transport. He owns four Super Drop Diamond cars, each having a chrome-gold paint job.
  • Frickie Van Hardenburg was photographed by Weazel News driving a Super Drop Diamond, as seen in the "Guns in Liberty" trailer for TBoGT.
  • Luis Fernando Lopez is awarded a Super Drop Diamond by Yusuf Amir after successfully completing the mission "For the Man Who Has Everything".
