The Lamborghini Diablo SV (Super Veloce) is an upgraded model of the Lamborghini Diablo. The engine power output of the 5.7L V12 was increased to 510 bhp. Super Veloce is a title given to Lamborghini's highest performance models.
The Super Veloce came with an adjustable rear spoiler and other exterior changes such as a black panel between the rear lights as standard. An optional SV logo could be placed on each side of the vehicle.
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.
The police variant of the Diablo differs between releases. The PlayStation release features an unplayable Interceptor with amber and blue emergency lights with a special gold, white and black livery 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.
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.
The police 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 police variants in the PlayStation release are unlocked by arresting 10 speeders with either the Corvette C5 police car or any police variant of the Porsche 911 Turbo (993). Arresting 10 speeders with the Diablo SV police car will unlock the Police Helicopter, which is only available in test drive mode.
The Australian police variant of the 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 HSV GTS VT police car or the Australian M5 police car.
The police variants in the PC release are unlocked after earning top cop and most wanted in classic hot pursuit gameplay. 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 5th, 2012 as a tier 2 car following the 6th "Spot the Devs" event. Since August 22nd, 2012, it has been featured as a C class vehicle.
The Lamborghini Diablo SV has a powerful acceleration and top speed of 180 mph (289 km/h). Traction is provided at an sufficient rate and prevents the car of becoming unstable in most corners.
Combined with a direct steering, the Diablo SV requires little braking efforts 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.
Players may find the Diablo SV to be a useful car for any game mode like the Chevrolet El Camino SS. Its mass does not affect its driving capabilities and allows the Diablo to remain controllable in collisions.
