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

Design

The Super Drop Diamond appears to be based on the 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.

Performance

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 4.7 seconds and an astronomical top speed of 220mph. The exceptionally wide and grippy tyres result in this leviathan being able to out-manoeuvre even the sportiest of cars.

Notable owners

  • 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".

Trivia

Trailers

  • In the "Guns in Liberty" trailer for TBoGT, Frickie Van Hardenburg is spotted driving a Super Drop Diamond. This scene, however, is not seen in the game itself, and no character in the game is shown driving this car except for Yusuf Amir.
In-game attributes
  • Unusually, the car never gets dirty, and as a result, the car cannot enter any car wash.
  • The player can shoot from the car with the window glass still in place.
  • When attempting to shoot enemies from behind, occasionally Luis' arm and gun will appear to stick out of the roof.
  • The car shares the same rim design as the Albany Cavalcade.
  • The default radio station of this car is The Beat 102.7.
  • The car has no reverse lights.
  • This car doesn't have visible pedals or a shifter, so it's unknown if this car is either manual or automatic, though the huge luxury stature and smooth drive would suggest that it has an automatic gearbox.
